Windows 7: BSOD after Dual Booting

BSOD after Dual Booting

Hi, I recently installed Windows 7 64bit (mainly to fiddle about with the new adobe software, which I am now regretting) on my other hard drive, I initially had Windows 7 32bit on my other HDD, after installing, everything was fine, watched a movie, browsed the net, everything was fine and dandy.

I decided to install and AV, I usually go for AVG as a quick solution till I get something sorted but I decided to give avast a whirl. I installed it, all was well, yet when I restarted, a few seconds after the welcome screen displayed my computer BSOD'd, I tried again, same thing. Tried it in safemode, it was fine, tried it in safemode with networking, is BSOD'd, so I uninstalled Avast and it still does all this. I can't give an error code for the BSOD for two reasons, I don't have access to the PC at the moment, and also the error code changed everytime, sometimes it would come up with a .dll or .sys file, sometimes it would not.

If fiddled for a while, ended up formatting the second HDD with 64bit on it, booted into my normal setup, everything was fine, for a few minutes. Then it BSOD'd, and it does this everytime after a few minutes of being in windows. But now the BSOD message is the same "PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA". I would post a log, but I can't due to the fact I don't have access to the PC right now, I will in a few hours though.

So, any idea's off the top of your head what I can try? The last system restore point available is one from September, which isn't ideal, but I'm wondering, will I still have all my documents after going back that far? What will I lose? I will try disabling a few startup services that I feel maybe causing it, but I need some more input. Oh yeah, the day before installing 64bit, Windows Update decided to install all the updates available without warning me, could this have caused anything? Maybe a bad driver? Can I retrieve a list of what it downloaded?

Cheers.

My Specs (the computer is 3 years oldish, custom built):
nVidia 8800GTS 8800 640MB
4gb DDR 2 ram
AMD 3.01ghz processor

We really need the actual DMP file. use these to find them and upload them. https://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html

Sorry about that, I'll get it on here when I can, may be a while.

I know BSOD's are pretty hard to pinpoint from the basic info i'm giving you, but what usually causes these BSOD's? And will a clean install fix it? If so, I'll probably just resort to that, just the hassle of getting all my stuff back which I find annoying.

I think this might have been caused by me messing with EasyBCD, is it even needed when dual booting windows 7? I wasn't entirely sure.

Okay, I finally managed to get windows installed and working, I'm going to upload all the DMP files on the other hard drive now. I had a quick skim over them and it looks like ntkrnlpa.exe was causing this most of the time.
Attached are all the dumps in my minidump folder.

I'll save what I can and format the other HDD, and just hope this never returns, although it'd be nice to know what caused it.

*EDIT*
The computer BSOD'd immediately after posting this. How fun.

It seems to BSOD randomly after a few minutes of using the computer.

I hate to double (well, triple now) post, and I hate it even more to bump. But the BSOD's have stopped, for now, but what can I do to make sure they don't come back? Can someone please look over my DMP's and tell me what I need to update/remove/reinstall? Thanks.
