Continuous Kernel Panic Issue

I know there are many posts regarding kernel panics on this forum though having read advice and having done many things to try and fix the problem, I still keep having the same issue.

My kernel panics only occur when I do a few certain things. The first time the problem occurred a few months ago after having reformatted my Macbook Pro and whenever I tried to transfer photos from my Canon DSLR camera through iphoto. After having run some Disk Utility repairs it seemed like the problem had gone away but then shortly after I started having the problem any time I would search for something using spotlight. I would simply be searching for something and then all of a sudden the kernel panic occurs. I still have this issue right now. Another way it recently occurred was when I was trying to install Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac. It would always get halfway or near the end of the installation and then start a kernel panic.

I've done various forms of maintenance, I've repaired permissions and repaired disk straight from the OSX startup CD. I've done the Apple Hardware Test with the extended test option and I got absolutely no errors.

So I've done everything I could think of and it never tells me there's any hardware issue, though I can't figure out what kind of software issue would cause it as well.

Here is my most recent log:

Even now, I can literally make a panic start by just searching spotlight or trying to install Microsoft Office. Can anyone help me figure out why this is happening and how to resolve the issue?

I would really appreciate it.

EDIT: Please let me know if I'm posting this in the wrong thread
as I am not sure whether this is a hardware or software issue.

If I had to take a "somewhat" educated guess... I would say you have a memory module acting up. The page fault registers that are dumping and the kernel trap looks that way.

You might want to either try an extended memory test using the AHT or the "Memtest OS X" program. Use the extended tests.

You could also remove one module at a time from your MBP and see how it behaves.

I had already run the extended Apple Hardware Test and my results were returned as not having any errors. I will run Memtest next and let you know if tells me anything.

After having done the Memtest all of my results came out as "ok" without any errors. Does this mean it is more likely a software issue or could it still be hardware related and just not be showing up in any test?

I just wanted to check that you have run fsck? I'm sure you have, but if not, you should try.
It is a very good way of fixing kernel panics, works 95% of the time.

OK, that's fine. We'll assume the memory is alright. Take the advice given in the post by Kevriano and run a FSCK on the hard drive. You'll need to boot the machine with your install DVD and use Disk Utility. See the instructions given here.

If you mean just running the repair permissions and repair disk from the Disk Utility while booting from the Mac OSX CD, then I have done this numerous times. In fact I ran it now just to check again. I took a photo of my results since I'm not sure I could do a screen capture:

Disk Utility

After rebooting I tried searching spotlight for my font called "Gotham", before even finishing I go straight into Kernel panic mode:

I guess if this is some kind of software related issue I would much rather just solve it by reformatting again as much as I'd like to avoid having to do that.

Run fsck by booting to single user mode, not from disk utility. There are loads of threads explaining how, I've written it a few times. This is Apple's recommended way of tackling kernel panics.
