Windows 7: BSoD 0xF4 Symevent.sys Win7 32x

Windows 7 32/64
BSoD 0xF4 Symevent.sys Win7 32x

Everything Included. I have multiple systems that will BSoD after windows updates go out through wsus. I have looked through the logs and I've found that symevent.sys will popup on pretty much every system in windbg. We have downgraded/upgrade our SEP server version to see if that resolves the issue. I have about 15-20 systems that have this issue. If you need more logs I do have those available. I also ran driver verifier (which you can see in the logs). Any help would be appreciated. I'm sure I've over thought this and any help is appreciated!

Windows 7 32/64

The 5th of October is just this machine. I have this occurring on about 30-40 laptops. I can give you dump files from as early as this morning. I'll run the dm log collector on the most recent machine. An post it. Thanks so much for responding! I know what the symevent.sys. I'm wondering if someone can look through the dmp files for a second opinion. This is plaguing our systems and after spending hours looking at logs/upgrading different drivers on test systems it still occurs. I'll report back with updated logs. Thanks

**this machine BlueScreened this morning. Thanks!
