Windows 7: BSOD When playing any 3D Game

BSOD When playing any 3D Game

I have had nothing but trouble since installing Windows 7 x64 on this machine. Everything ran fine under Windows XP but since 7 I get regular BSOD while playing any 3D game. I have tried uninstalling all my 3rd party drivers and then reinstalling just the video driver but I still get the crashes. I don't think it is hardware related but something in my machine might be dieing, which only becomes apparent when im stressing the pc, i.e playing Dragon Age or Borderlands. Any suggestions would be brilliant as I'm stuck getting ~10 BSOD per day and I only get to play games for 30mins at a time before the autoreboot.

My specs are:
Sapphire Vapor-x 1GB 4870 with Catalyst 10.4 freshly installed.
2GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2 PC-6400
GA-M57SLI-S4 Rev 2 with latest bios flashed.
Athlon X2 6400+ 400FSB Version.

I have attached one days worth of dumps, yesterdays. Some of them are from driver verifier, which still BSOD even with all the 3rd party drivers uninstalled.

Please help me

Very straightforward. Your anti-virus AVG is causing the crashes. Uninstall it completely, and install Microsoft Security Essentials instead.

A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.

Windows 7 x64

Thanks for getting back to me so soon, I did once see this avg file in the brief time the blue screen displays and so I have already uninstalled AVG. I THINK i have seen a BSOD since then, but i will just play borderlands for a bit to see if I can get it to crash again. Interestingly if I run Driver Verifier, I have no unsigned drivers installed + no drivers for older versions of windows installed. However if I tick 'test all drivers' i get a BSOD after about 30 seconds of logging into windows. I'll be back with another dump im sure.

I think it may be fixed, just played with no bsod for about 45mins, not conclusive but definitely an improvement, cheers so much Jonathan.

BSOD when playing games. No specific game, just any game.
It seems something is going wrong with my GPU or one of the drivers. I feel like it's most likely hardware failure, due to extreme treatment of my laptop. What happens is the whole screen kind of just gets chopped up into squares (sometimes the patterns vary. Sometimes, it's not even a ****ing...
