I suggest looking at them with NirSoft's BlueScreenView:

I see a bunch of errors related to "ntoskrnl.exe" and "afd.sys", and "ntfs.sys".  I don't know what they mean though...

driver irql not less or equal
irql not less or equal
kmode exception not handled
system thread exception not handled

Suggestions?

Multiple different crashes - suspect memory.
Run a prolonged memory test on your system - eg MemTest86+ (there's a version you can boot off a USB stick).

I've seen
driver irql not less or equal
irql not less or equal
caused by having multiple anti-virus programs installed.

If MemTest doesn't show any bad sticks, try reseating all the cards and cables... don't just push on them to ensure they're secure, actually unplug them and plug them back in. You should completely unplug the power cord before starting, if that needs to be said.

as said above a common one is ntfs.sys
i can tell you that isn't good because ntfs is the windows file system

try running CHKDISK and it should  delete/repair system files that are vital

if all else fails, re install windows

in this case, i suggest to run a Ram and disk diag first - to be sure about the basics
download UBCD, it has all diags you need -make the cd, and boot from it
run memtest86+ for ram - at least 1 complete pass
then run the disk diag for your disk brand from HDD section>diagnosis

So, was it bad RAM or a bad hard drive?
