Windows 7: Multiple BSODs for about a week after updating various programs

Multiple BSODs for about a week after updating various programs

Hi. I've had some computer trouble recently(past couple weeks, fan issue, a data backup service not reverting ownership of files so I had to comb through my computer myself, lots of things) and I thought it might be a good idea to update some things.
I was annoyed about convenience issues (things like Firefox not working properly, etc) and used the third party Ninite updater to try and update a lot of things at once on November 7th.
Then, on November 8th, I updated another round of programs - Adobe Flash, Firefox(+Nightly), and Skype. I also happened to install a, what I thought to be, long overdue update of Windows 7 with Service Pack 1. That's when the problems started rolling in.
BSODs about memory management and system service exceptions, they happened just about every day.
Even updating Windows further did me no good!
I had looked into this a little myself and found that in all cases, it was connected to firefox.exe. It tended to happen after I used it for a while, like having multiple (long) youtube videos open, but it would also happen if I simply left it idling with a few tabs open. I reverted to an earlier version of Java to try and fix this problem, as one of the root causes was with a java servlet.
No crashes for an entire day but then I grew frustrated with Firefox crashing, due to a specific Dropbox .dll, and thought to remove it.
Well, then I ended up getting a task scheduler error.
Long story short, I uninstalled Dropbox and re-installed it, but it said it needed a Windows update. The first time I tried to install the rollup update it said it failed, so I tried to update it overnight.
Unfortunately, when I woke up this morning I found that I got a BSOD. A brand new one to boot.
That wasn't good. So then I investigated around, but then, when I was running the blue screen manager from this very site, I got a brand new error about IRQL management.
I give up. That's why I'm turning to you guys now. Did my RAM suddenly go bad after applying these updates, is there something else I can do, what's the problem? I'd really appreciate the help! I'd be happy if things went back to the way they were just a few weeks ago. I have all the minidumps right in here, I really hope it helps.

EDIT: I also ran CCleaner to clean up the registry and internet cache around that time. That might be important too.
