Windows 7 and Sims 2-BSOD

HI, I'm a New Newbie- have very little computer savvy...just a plug and play kind of girl. Did a new install of Windows 7- ran Vista before- downloaded Sims 2 and most expansion and stuff packs. All ran fine prior to installing Windows 7. Now I get random crashing- usually in the create a sim- but not always. I have tried running it in Vista- updating game and drivers, turning off UAC- running it as administrator- Sometimes I get the blue screen of death other times it crashes to the desktop. Any ideas? again I am very new at this so be as simple and concise as possible..And thanks in advance

How did you install Windows 7?
Did you upgrade from Vista or did a clean install of Windows 7?
