    BSoD after random freeze

    I'm posting on behalf of a friend of mine. I've attached a DM log from his most recent BS and set my PC specs to reflect his.
    While he was telling me that he Blue Screened, I asked him a few questions to see what he was doing at the time, but he told me that he couldn't think of anything that had been consistent throughout each freeze, only that the freeze happened first, and the BS happened on start up.
    The first time it happened, he had been downloading Skype.
    The second, he was browsing the internet and using Photoshop.
    The third time he was in queue for an online video game.
    Any help would be extremely appreciated.

    2. removing software that is known for causing bluescreens,
    3. checking the hardware, the bluescreen error is known as a hardware error

    Please uninstall ASUS software, it is known for causing bluescreens and uses outdated drivers.

    Please check the motherboard manufacturer for driver updates for the ASmedia USB drivers & network drivers and update/remove/reinstall following drivers

    Daemon tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause for BSOD's.
    Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover.

    I'll have him remove norton and Daemon immediately. As far as bios drivers go, I've already had him update those from manufactures website, as well as resetting his bios to default settings, though he insisted he wasn't overclocking. After Bios reset, the crashes have still happened.
    Our next step will be the drivers for the ASmedia USB drivers & network drivers. Will confirm that they're updated next reply.
    After the software is out of the way, I'll start him up on hardware testing.
    Thank you for the reply. I'll do what I can to get back to you soon

    We may be overlooking it, but neither of us could find a download section in the ASMedia Tech link you sent us.
    Software listed has been removed.
    Also, the links to pages for the DRT had links listed for update pages, but the one for PCA responded with a domain error, the other didn't seem to lead to anything driver related.
