Windows 7: Newly assembled computer crashes every 30 minutes error 3b latest?

Hi Centaur,
1. It was set to "manual" but I selected "start" and then "stop" just to be sure.
2. I don't know what the confusion is about! There was an additional intel pro 100 card that I removed as part of the troubleshooting, but there is only one ethernet jack now on the mobo. I tried to run the realtek driver installation but the asussetup.exe program said there was no realtek driver installed. So I have no idea what's going on there.
3. Installed.
4. I had tried the readiness tool before but it failed. I have downloaded from your link and right now it is "searching for updates on this computer". I'll report back when it's done.

Thanks for helping!

Point 1 ... please disable.. not manual..

Point 2 ... I guess you didnt read what i said here.... the drivers you have installed for ethernet is from Nvidia... why ??? As per the mother model number Asus P5N-EM mentioned in system info it is a realtek ethernet thats provided....
Now which is right ???

Point 1: Sorry, it now reads "startup type" "disabled". However, I also tried to stop it and Windows displayed an error that the service couldn't be stopped. It now says "stopping" under "status".

Point 2: I read but didn't understand. I have no idea which is correct, nor how the system came to have the wrong drivers installed, even though it may well have been me who did it. What should I do?

4. Waiting for hotfix to finish installing and will restart.

now the reason why I am asking Point 2 is ..... it was part for BSOD stack crash.... so the only way to see if this has not caused the BSOD is to disable it.....

But wait till you finish the restart... and see if it crashes... if it does... then disable the network by going to device manager.. Check if it crashes... let me know how it goes.

Thanks, the hotfix has been in a state of "installing" for 20 minutes now with the "Installing" status bar completely empty. I'll hope it finally progresses and report back.

Update: Hotfix installed! Should I go ahead and apply more windows updates, just wait and let it run, or...?

Update: no crashing after 90 minutes or so. Going to install more Windows updates.
