The Admin log file shows a number of failures to load the CD-ROM drivers.  As these are closely tied to the controller that runs both the hard drive and the CD-ROM drives, I have to wonder about problems there.  Start with these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html (start with the hard drive tests).

Many, many Live Kernel Events in the WER section of MSINFO32.  Please read this article:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504

Drivers not installed for USB controllers and Atheros AR3011 Bluetooth.  Please install them.

Be sure that you have ALL available Windows Updates


Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen both dtsoftbus01.sys and dtscsibus.sys blamed on several occasions).


Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration):  New link (15 Aug 2012):  http://www.duplexsecure.com/downloads (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).
Alternate link:  http://www.disc-tools.com/download/sptd
Manual procedure here:  http://daemonpro-help.com/en/problems_and_solutions/registry_and_sptd_problems.html

Just FYI - Daemon Tools can cause problems such as you're having and they don't have to be BSOD's.
