Hello, running W7 (64bit) 4 gb RAM.
Experienced a number of BSODs recently. The system recommended that I run the memory checker, and indeed I received a windows popup warning:
"Your computer has a memory problem.
Memory problems can cause your computer to lose information or stop working. ... yadda yadda contact the manufacturer"

And, when I navigate to the minidump file in c:\windows, there is nothing in there...

Seems most of the time, my machine crashes when I've got Firefox open. I've updated it yet crashes still occur when it's open/running. That's my own observation...

Well, nothing's there... BUT...
I right-clicked the folder icon and got a 'show previous' option. There were some older files in there, which I have attached...

Cool.

Remove the AVG in safe mode using the special tool found here:

AV Uninstallers - Windows 7 Forums

Reboot to normal mode after and install MSE to replace it, which will never cause bsod or memory corruption like AVG can and does.

---------

Code:
WinRing0x64 WinRing0x64.sys Sat Jul 26 09:29:37 2008
Must uninstall/delete this Gadget and rid it's folder(s) from the machine:

C:\Users\Donnie\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets\IntelCoreSeries24.gadget\WinRing0x64.sys

Delete the entire IntelCoreSeries24.gadget folder after closing the gadget itself.

Reboot and run Ccleaner to clean the registry.

---------------

Code:
Rt64win7 Rt64win7.sys Thu Feb 26 04:04:13 2009
Update your Realtek network driver. Type systeminfo in a comand prompt then press enter. It will tell you the number of it. If you have 8111 use the following link to download:

RTL8111

If you have another number, search the left side of the link instead, for it.

-----------

Delete this driver:
Code:
BIOS64   BIOS64.sys   Sat Jun 07 20:12:00 2003
It is at C:\Windows\system32\drivers\BIOS64.sys

Reboot and again run Ccleaner to clean the registry.

------------

Rename this driver to Rtnic64.bak and reboot.

Code:
Rtnic64  Rtnic64.sys  Mon Mar 31 01:39:38 2008
It's also at C:\Windows\System32\drivers


-----------

If you follow this carefully and do everything, the machine will be fine. Enjoy.

Many thanks again, Torrent!
All of the steps were successful, EXCEPT installing MSE. Apparently, one must issue a support ticket ... I've not had much luck with tickets supporting free software, even with MS.

I do have Microsoft Forefront Protection 2010 installed - as an MS contractor, I installed it earlier in the year in order to work from home and connect remotely. It's a firewall/malware program. Hopefully, it's a fine MSE option.
