I guess that this is caused by system services. When I look at the bugcheck summary, I can see that the process running at the time of crash was Rainmeter.exe, do you have any idea what program is that?
Here is what I found online:
Rainmeter is a customizable performance meter.
It can display the CPU load, memory utilization, disk space, network traffic, time and so on.

If that is the third party software installed in your system, I would recommend to remove it for the time being.

BugCheck 1E, {ffffffffc0000005, fffff80002a88805, 0, ffffffffffffffff}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!ExpInterlockedPopEntrySListFault16+0 )

Followup: MachineOwner
PROCESS_NAME:  Rainmeter.exe
Third party antivirus softwares are known for causing BSODs and Eset Nod32 is not an exception. I would recommend you to remove it from your system for testing purposes.
How to uninstall or remove ESET Nod32 antivirus totally?
Replace it by Microsoft Security Essential if you need alternative one for protection:

Virtual CD such as Deamon tool or Alcohol 120% are known for causing BSODs, please remove them completely, then use this tool to remove sptd.sys (component of Deamon tool and hard to remove simply).
DuplexSecure - Downloads <--Make sure to choose uninstall option when u execute the tool.

Update these drivers:

swmsflt  swmsflt.sys  Sat Sep 13 02:08:52 2008 (48CABE44) <--? What is that
RTCore64 RTCore64.sys Wed May 25 13:39:12 2005 (42941D90) RivaTuner/EVGA Precision 
NWADIenum NWADIenum.sys Tue Jun 03 06:25:53 2008 (48448181) Novaltel NWADI Bus Enumerator

This is optional, there is an exception code ffffc0000005, which suggest memory issue, it would be best if you can download third party called memtestx86, burn it to CD using ISO Recorder v3 , and let it run for at least 5 passes

Let us know how it turn out to be

Could I request that you post back about 1 week after the BSODs stop? I am curious to know the results of this one.
