Windows 7: BSOD Random and Random Restarts, Help plz! (STOP: 0x0000001E )

BSOD Random and Random Restarts, Help plz! (STOP: 0x0000001E )

I am typing this original post from my cellphone because that is where I wrote the blue screen error finally once it started happening frequently, just today so please do forgive me if I am missing anything but I'll come back on my Desktop and try to finish anything needed in the post once I submit it from my phone.

Here is the error message:
0x0000001E (0XFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0XFFFFF80003281DC2, 0X0000000000000000, 0X000000000000020)

I will let you know right off the bat that I am definitely not a techie so this is all very confusing to me. Please any help would be extremely appreciated!! Thanks again I'm advance!

Now before I came here to post, I did do a few hours of research and eventually took the following steps.

1. I have reinstalled my Nvidia Graphics Driver.
2. I have deleted, uninstalled, cleaned up a great deal of space on my desktop.
3. I have used Safe Mode to enter my Device Manager where I looked at my Network Adapters and made sure that all of them were up to date, this was easy because I only had 3 network adapters. The first two were both up to date. The third one is "Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter" which wouldn't allow me to update because it said it was not from a "trusted source" and windows didn't want to authorize. For this reason I just right-click and Disabled it.
4. I have run SFC /scannow from cmd as Administrator. The results:
"Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

That is all I have done so far, steps 3 & 4 I just did now so I haven't had a chance to see if this fixed my problem yet or not..but I have a feeling that it wouldn't so that is why I am asking for help now in advance.

A little background about my desktop. I have had it for a few years now and I have been using it mostly for gaming. I have played tons and tons of games on it without having any issues before whatsoever it is an amazing desktop! It out-runs almost all of my friends' desktops that have higher specs.

The first random BSOD I have ever got on it was about 2-4 weeks ago while I was playing world of Warcraft. Because I have never had one before I did not think too much of it. But then about a 1-2 weeks ago it happened again and I began to get worried. The second time it happened I was not playing any games at all I was just browsing the Internet. Then this week it happened again, and as of yesterday my Desktop would sometimes not even blue screen, instead it would just turn off randomly by itself and then restart on its own.

Since yesterday this has occurred quite a few times, once every 5-6 hours or so. Two of the times it was while I was browsing the Internet or my email. The rest of the time it happened all while I was playing World of Warcraft.

What I don't understand is in between now and when I first started playing WoW (about 2 months ago) I have not changed anything on the computer and there were absolutely no problems running WoW whatsoever during the first month when I was actually playing it more.

There are only a very few couple of things that have changed. All of which were automatic updates basically.

1. My Windows did run a rather large automatic update right around the same time that I started having the first of these issues.
2. My Nvidia driver was also updated to a newer version (which I have reinstalled now)
3. World of Warcraft did have a recent patch.
4. I connected my Desktop to an external 2TB WD My Cloud.
5. If there was anything else I can't think of it. But the only change here I mentioned that actually happened around as far back as the first BSOD occurrence was the Windows Automatic Update!

Anyways, thanks for any help, it's gotten really really bad now. In Safe Mode I'm not having issues, but as of just tonight in the passed 1-2 hours if I log onto WoW my Desktop will either BSOD or automatically restart within only being online 5-10min..I can't play at all!

Will be checking for replies so I can give any further information that you may need in order to help me!
