Please uninstall this because this program is known to cause problems such as BSODs.

Probably caused by : dxgmms1.sys
Please reinstall DirectX and make sure it is the latest version.

Please run RAM - Test with Memtest86+ just in case you might have faulty RAM.

After post back results.

You need to update to the latest drivers for atikmpag.sys - ATI Video driver (remove the Catalyst Control Center and only install the Display Driver)

Thanks to FredeGail for the instruction.
Different culprits pointed towards your ATI Graphics Driver. Driver Sweeper will ensure that you'd have a clean install at the end of the procedure, and by that no leftover files that'd bork the system.

  • Make your way to ATI Drivers - Downloads and download the latest driver for your card, save it to your desktop for instance
  • Uninstall the Graphic driver you currently have and all its extensions (do not reboot yet)
  • Select all the ATI components and analyse them
  • Clean them, head into Windows without internet and install the driver you've downloaded previously
