New System Windows 8.1 Unexpected Kernel Mode Trap

Last response: in Systems

My System:
Asrock h87 Performance
Intel I5 4570
XFX DD 280x
G Skill 2x 4g PC3 1700
Samsung 840 Evo 120gb
3 HDDs
Superflower 650w Golden King
Antec Eleven Hundred Case

My problem:
Sometimes when browsing, and when I try to download games from Steam I get Unexpected_Kernel_Mode_Trap blue screens. The most common crash is from Ndu.sys, but have also had from netio.sys; volsnap.sys; and wanarp.sys.

What I have done:
Memtest 86; did seven passes with no errors. Scan Disk on the the two HDDs that Steam uses with no errors. Reinstalled motherboard drivers, intel drivers, and my Lan driver (also from intel). Really confused as to what's up. Not sure how/what to check next.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think I solved it on my own.

The problem was Asrock Xfast LAN utility and/or my seagate 1tb HDD starting to die. The two of them together produced the errors. After I deleted the utility I no longer had crashes, but started to get hard disk failure messages. Xfast LAN might have also been installed on the drive that is dying as well.
