Kernel-PnP Warnings in Windows 8.1 System Logs..??

I've been getting some BSOD's on a fresh build of a new system with Windows 8.1 Pro and all updates installed.  I also have the latest BIOS from the motherboard manufacturer, which is an ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z.

The BSOD has an error that sometimes says: KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE

Other times it says:  SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

When I look in my Event Viewer at the system logs, I see a bunch of warnings like this:

Level: Warning
Source: Kernel-PnP
Event ID:  219
Task Category: (212)

General Tab:  

The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device SWD\WPDBUSENUM\_??_USBSTOR#Disk&Ven_Generic-&Prod_Compact_Flash&Rev_1.01#7&1c4905a4&0&058F63646476&1#{53f56307-b6bf-11d0-94f2-00a0c91efb8b}.

I've done some Googling, but I'm not finding much with this info.  Any help figuring this out would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
