Windows 8 Random BSODs for weeks upon end Probably caused by a device driver

I've been getting random BSOD's ever since I've downloaded a windows update for a few months back.

I've upload everything asked in How To Ask For Help With BSOD forum.


I have a feeling it's a driver that's making it crash but can't figure out which one. I don't have Avast Anti virus installed which seems to be the answer for some people out there that was having similar problems.

I have the latest windows 8 updates and I've updated my Bios with the latest.

The DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL bug check has a value of 0x000000D1. This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.

All your dumps are of the above blaming Ndis.sys as the fault. Please update your network drivers. Your bios is old. I know you say you updated but this dump is dated from Monday (yesterday)
BiosVersion = 3401
BiosReleaseDate = 05/20/2010

Please update:

Also update your setpoint drivers Link Removed and for this period of testing uninstall the asus probe app.

Failing the above do you know which update caused the issue? Have you tried restoring the system back to a point before the download?

I have the latest version BIOS : 3503

I've just updated setpoint drivers and I've uninstalled asus probe.

I can't restore back to previous build because no restore points where created even thou I have set it up for every windows 8 update.

I'm still having random crashes when windows desktop is loading up.

I tried to update the HD Audio "viahduaa.sys" but it came up with We can't find HD audio device and did not install.

How would I update the other drivers you suggested ?
 
The via drivers are here:

Something else I forgot to mention.. Are you running Daemon Tools? If so please remove.
