Windows 7: Intermittent BSOD - causing PC to restart

Intermittent BSOD - causing PC to restart

Hi Team,
Writing this post to find an answer to BSOD error in my PC. I have windows 7 in my PC(this was re-installed around 1.5 months back).
I have been facing intermittent BSOD's in my PC since last 2 weeks.

I have tried verifying the dump file using BlueScreenViewer & the driver causing this looks to be ntoskrnl.exe. The error is "Critical_Object_Termination" & error code - 0x000000f4.

I have been trying to find a solution for it, but online search shows there can be couple of reasons for this error including hardware & driver issues.

I am new to BSOD's. Can someone please let me know, the exact cause of this error after analyzing the attached dump files. Also, is attached a zip file with system info. I have also shared screenshots from the BlueScreenViewer.

Also, I see this happening intermittently (sometimes after couple of days), when performing certain tasks like - Scanning PC with installed antivirus(Bitdefender Internet Security I my case), or opening PDF doc. in my browser. Just thought of sharing this info. as well, if there happens to be some connection with this.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated & Thanks in advance.. :)

What issues were you facing?

The xml file provided is kind off useless, because it is difficult to read + doesn't provide everything requested in the posting instructions.
