Windows 7: Having several BSOD, random. Latest 0x000000f4

Having several BSOD, random. Latest 0x000000f4

Hello everyone, hoping to get some assistance. First, let me lay down some history. About 2 weeks ago, my PC started running slow, locking up regularly. Finally it BSOD and it would not load up Windows again after that. If I remember correctly, the code for that was 0xc000000e. I tried loading it up in safe mode to run SFC but it would not run, it kept giving me an error about 35% of the way in. I reinstalled Windows, updated all my drivers and installed all of the updates, and started getting more BSOD almost right off the bat. I assumed I was having RAM issues, so I performed memtest86 and let it run overnight, it ran 5 passes and found no errors. I then reinstalled Windows again, which brings me to this point. I've updated Windows 7 and ran SFC, it found no errors. I then ran Check Disk, and I'll post the results and the dump files for you guys. But first, my computer info:

Browsing the forum I noticed that Volsnap.sys is sometimes caused by antivirus issues? I'm running AVG. At the time, Norton was installed via bloatware but not activated. Could that have been the cause of that BSOD?
