Windows 7: BSOD - Appears random, different causes, does not happen in safe mode

BSOD - Appears random, different causes, does not happen in safe mode


A few weeks ago I started experiencing BSOD crashes. This was the first time in over 2 years of use this had happened. I searched the forums and checked as much as I could. I updated all drivers, checked memory (removed all modules and tested 1 by 1), scanned hard drives, unplugged all peripherals. Pretty much everything I tried didn't change anything. To make things more interesting, every time I checked the minidumps in BlueScreenView it would almost always highlight a different dll, address each time.

Suddenly the crashes stopped shortly after my attempts to fix so I thought I had fixed it. Fast forward 2 problem free weeks later to today and it's happening again. 5 times within the hour, even as quick as 10 seconds after booting into windows. Each time the Minidumps refer to a different issue so I really can't understand where to start.

I have not experienced a crash while in safe mode. But maybe this is just by chance!

Attached are the last 5 minidumps . Any advice is greatly appreciated as I can't see a way to fix.

Kaspersky seems to be contributing to the BSOD's.

Please remove it for a test.

Microsoft Security Essentials is recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other internet security software. Malwarebytes is a great combo to MSE. They are free and lightweight.

Also uninstall your existing Antivirus software before you install MSE.

Good and Free system security combination.

Reduce items at start-up. No software except anti-virus is required plus doing this improves the time for logging into windows:Please uninstall Daemon Tools. It uses a driver called sptd.sys which is known to cause BSODs in Windows 7.
