Windows 7: BSOD every few days, not sure what the problem is

BSOD every few days, not sure what the problem is

I've been getting BSOD's for over a year now randomly, but lately they've been much more frequent.
I'm getting it basically every few days and it's getting really frustrating.
Just this morning, I had it get a BSOD and automatically reboot while in sleep mode.
I'm not sure what causes these to occur, I'll usually be browsing the internet and the computer will completely freeze up, I can't move the cursor or anything and then it will BSOD or I'll have to hold the power button to shut it off. However, it also occurred even when I had the computer in sleep mode this morning, which confuses me more.
There are times when the computer freezes up and I've waited atleast 2 minutes before I just decided to shut it off by holding the power button because nothing happens. I've noticed that when this happens, the fan tends to start getting loud and will be blowing hot air for a brief period before it shuts off. However, it won't do that until AFTER the computer is already locked up.
I've tried multiple browsers, including Firefox and Chrome and it has happened on both, so I don't think that is the problem.
I've installed the latest drivers I could find for everything so I'm not sure it has anything to do with those, it happened with the old ones and still happens with the new ones.
I even resorted to returning my laptop to the factory defaults via the "My Dell" program that came with the computer, as well as a clean install of Windows 7 on my own and the problems still persist.
I use Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 on my computer, if that makes any difference.
Programs I will commonly have running are Kaspersky, Skype, Firefox/Chrome.
Can anybody please try to help me out? If more info is needed, please let me know. Thanks!

Uninstall Kaspersky using Kaspersky Removal Tool. At least as a test basis. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Let us know how the computer runs after doing it.

@Arc alright I'll try that out and see if I can go a few days without a BSOD then report back.

Update: No BSOD's so far since getting rid of Kaspersky, may have been the problem. I'll report back if I end up getting one at some point.
