Kernel Security Check Failure

Hello, My computer keeps having a problem where out of the blue I'll get the BSOD for Kernel Security Check Failure. It all started about a month ago when there was a Windows Update. Computer would crash afterwards. I uninstalled the update, left it alone for about a week, then installed the update again.

Everything SEEMED fine but these random crashed keep happening about once a day.

Here's what I have done:
Ran SFC multiple times. The first time I did this it said it found corrupted files, and that it fixed them. Since then, no issues.

Ran DISM, no issues.

Ran System memory checker, no issues

Ran a full virus scan of all files, no issues.

The error that keeps coming up in event viewer is "event ID 6008" Here is what I pulled from event log: Log Name: System Source: EventLog Date: 2/28/2021 9:51:12 AM Event ID: 6008 Task Category: None Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: Red-5 Description: The previous system shutdown at 9:40:56 AM on 2/28/2021 was unexpected.

ALSO: I have attached my last minidump file from the latest crash. not that i had to break it into two parts to get under the upload size limit on this site, but it is all from a single dump. Thank you for any help!

I see PROCESS_NAME: esrv_svc.exe in your WinDbg log
The genuine esrv_svc.exe file is a software component of Sony® VAIO Care by Sony Corporation.
Sony developed a driver file named "esrv_svc.exe" as part of its "VAIO Care" software for its VAIO laptops. Its function is related to monitoring power usage.
Try to uninstall this driver and restart computer to check result.

The minidump your uploaded are .txt format, cannot be analyzed by WinDbg, the correct format should be .dmp format or compressed package format.
You could download WinDbg Preview from Store to analyze dump file by yourself, it is simple.
Besides, update system to the latest by Windows Update, also update drivers from Windows Update\View all optional updates\Driver updates.

Event ID 6008 entries indicate that there was an unexpected shutdown.
Critical thermal event indicates that the problem is related to one of your hardware components not functioning properly that is triggering the computer to shut down.
Check if your CPU is overheating. Also check if the heat sink or fan is functioning properly. If the laptop is under warranty, get in touch with the manufacturer.
If it isn’t, get a good cleaning done for the fan and heat sink with compressed air only if you’re comfortable. Otherwise seek the help of a technician.
In addition, since power supply plays a major role in cooling the computer’s innards check if PSU (Power Supply Unit) is functioning properly.

I tracked this down to the "Intel Energy checker" using the file name you provided. I installed their driver updater a few weeks ago, around the same time the BSODs started, and have found online others having the same problem.

It all makes sense now....... thank you for your help, hopefully this stops the BSODs!!!
