[WIN7] BSOD issues

I'm running Win7 Home Premium.
For some time now I've been getting random BSODs
I've looked at the most recent dmp file but I'm not sure what to make of it. Here's a screenshot of the .dmp if anyone can help.
Thanks in advanced!

Today I saw something that reminded me of you. But don’t worry, I flushed and everything went back to normal.

Having a quick look at the error:

0x0A, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

There seems to be quite a few options on how to fix this, and when it happens could define what you need.

There are:
Errors in fast user switching
Error in Hibernation (S4) that there is a hot fix for
Driver corruption
Anti Virus - which could be listed as driver corruption
Hardware errors such as memory, cpu, motherboard

Can you tell a little more about what is happening when it happens?
Is anything similar to what I've said listed in the Event Viewer before the crash?

Also, can you zip up the minidump files in the C:\Windows\Minidump folder and attach to a post in this thread.

If you have problems zipping the minidump files copy the minidump files to another location such as a folder on the Desktop

It seems to be fairly random although I notice it often when I watch a Youtube video. But sometimes my system will BSOD and reboot when I'm not even using it.
Today it BSOD'd when I was simply surfing the web.

Here are all the dmp files from c:\windows\minidump.
BTW, you can't even copy the .dmp files to another location without dropping UAC all the way down

Initially one of the errors is related to AVG. Web browsing maybe affected to if that is the case.

Also, with the error involving the AVG driver the process that crashed was nmsrvc.exe, which is a Network Magic process so there may be a clash between AVG and Network Magic.

You could uninstall, at least temporarily, both AVG and Network Magic and see if it makes a difference.

Consider alternative security software such as Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows built-in firewall.

Also, there is one older driver that may be an issue and that is the ultra.sys which appears to dated Oct 9, 2002.

The ultra.sys is mentioned the following link as the cause of an IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error:

»www.techsupportforum.com/forums/ ··· 200.html

If you a similar setup as in that link the ultra.sys could be an issue.

Also, the nvstor.sys appeared to cause a DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1) error so you may want to reload the chipset driver.

Also, there were two CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT (101) errors indicating a "hung processor":

»technet.microsoft.com/en-us/quer ··· ff557211

Consider updating the BIOS to version 1.60 which is listed to "Update CPU code".

Also, check the Event Viewer System logs for any errors or warnings that may indicate hardware issues.

Are you over-clocking in any way?

Thanks for all the replies!
I'm not overclocking at all.
Hard to give up AVG, it's been a great program for years. I can do without Network magic though. I think I'll start there. I'll also flash my bios and see if I can find updated ultra.sys.
