Windows 7: Windows 7 64x freezes!

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 freezes!

Hi, I've got Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit installed on my Toshiba Satellite E-1602. My computer keeps freezing randomly, though it does tend to happen more often within a couple minutes of startup, if not while starting up. I checked my event log, and at first I thought it was configfree because it had an entry stating something or another about configfree every time right before the entry stating computer was shut down unexpectedly. Then after uninstalling it I noticed the same log everytime about WLAN. Now it's saying the content source <csc//{S-1-5-21-2510000432-886004347-1415384596-1001}/> cannot be accessed in the event log . The were some other logs as well concerning Transaction Manager forcing incorrect outcomes. I don't know what to do. But I can tell you that I'm suspicious that the problem has something to do with incorrect drivers being installed. When I first installed the OS (a clean install by the way) I downloaded Toshiba's Software Installer driver and it put about 7 drivers on my cpu. Already, 2 of them I had to remove. I uploaded an attachment of my event logs. I archived them so I could upload all at once. Could someone PLEASE help me figure this out- I will be eternally greatful!

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Although no one has responded yet, I wanted to add some input as I have been working on this problem. In the Event Log, there were all kinds off errors, warnings, etc. one of which continually showed itself right before the unexpected shutdown (me turning off my pc due to the freeze). It had to do with the search index resetting itself. I don't completely understand it, but I know it had to have something to do with the problem. So I disabled the Windows Search Index (Control Panel\System & Security\Administrative Tools\Sevices then right clicking on Windows Search Index, choosing Properties and setting Startup Type to Disabled) and ever since I have had NOT ONE SINGLE ERROR in my Event Log and NOT ONE SINGLE FREEZE. Now, this is obviously not the ideal fix, but it works for now. I hope someone will help me through finding a way to enable the Windows Search Index without encountering any errors and freezing issues, as this is a common problem I've seen across both this forum and others. As I said, it's not the ideal fix, but if anyone else is experiencing freezing and their Event Logs state errors concerning the Windows Search Index, try the above approach and chances are it should stabilize your system.
