Hey everyone,
For ages, I've been having these issues of my laptop constantly freezing, crashing, programs not responding, etc. Well, I've finally decided to do something about it.
Device: HP Pavilion m6
Windows 7 x64
AMD A10-4600M Processor APU with Radeon 2.29GHz
Available space on the C: drive: 330GB
The current problem: Windows will not start in normal mode. Upon entering the login screen, it will crash and enter a BDOS screen reading, "A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught." I have been having problems with perpetual freezing for months now, but it has never gotten this bad before.
NOTE: Windows will run smoothly in safe mode, which is why I have narrowed the most probable cause to be a driver issue
Steps I have already taken:
-Ran CCleaner with no issues
-Defragged the disk with no issues
-Scanned for viruses with multiple antivirus programs (Vipre security, Malware bytes, and RogueKiller)
-Have gone into MSconfig and have disabled all startup programs and all startup services EXCEPT FOR MICROSOFT services
-I have attempted to do a system scan several times, but it would always get stuck at 64% of verification scan, even in safe mode
-I have checked the Event Viewer. The errors that appear at the time of the two most recent crashes are:
1. The DHCP Client service depends on the Ancillary Function Driver for Winsock service which failed to start because of the following error: 
A device attached to the system is not functioning.
2. The DNS Client service depends on the NetIO Legacy TDI Support Driver service which failed to start because of the following error: 
A device attached to the system is not functioning.
3. The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: 
4. The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: 
-I have attempted to do a system restore. It made no difference to the situation.

UPDATE: I have checked the device manager while in safe mode. There were no indicators . I'm not sure if that's because there are none or if it was because I was in safe mode
UPDATE 2: I have updated and repaired the ASUS network driver. No difference was made.

UPDATE 3: Figured out how to and added the 3 most recent .dmp files

tcpipreg.sys is the first driver to fail on the stack. This is a Windows driver and can often be repaired by running

sfc /scannow

from an elevated command prompt.
