Windows 7: BSOD Several times a day

After all that, driver date is the same. Perhaps the file date and the driver date are different.

I'm feeling that the network adapter isn't my problem.

Actually, when I look at the date stamp on the driver files in the zip I downloaded, it is 12/26/2012. So my Realtek card drivers are the latest. That's not the problem.

Thanks in advance for any additional suggestions.

Additional information: When I first got the computer, I turned off UAC. I did most of the initial set-up in that state. A few days ago, I decided to set UAC to the default setting. That's when the BSODs started. It coincided with the installation of a firewire card and that's what I was fixated on. Last night, I turned off UAC. The computer is still running and successfully executed a few Retrospect backup scripts overnight.

So ... the question is how to fix an obviously messed up UAC.

Thanks yet again for any suggestions.

Thanks ... but, not really. I'm trying to fix getting constant BSODs when I switch UAC from off to default.

try running the system file checker and running a chkdsk they will check for and hopefully six corrupted system files and corrupted portions of your hard drive to run them do the following:

1) Open the start menu in the search box type cmd
2) Right click cmd and select run as administrator from the list
3) enter "sfc /scannow" without the quotes
4) when sfc is finished enter "chkdsk /f /r" with no quotes, it will ask if you would like to schedule a check disk at the next restart select yes
5) restart the computer it will run a check disk before loading into the log in menu
