Windows 7: BSOD upon opening certain programs after Win 7 reinstall

BSOD upon opening certain programs after Win 7 reinstall

Hi Everybody,

New to these forums and didn't really know where to ask this question. I just moved from Windows 8.1 to Windows 7 and since installing the OS, my PC crashes to a blue screen when I open certain applications.

So far it has happened upon opening Europa Universalis 4, Tweetdeck and Microsoft Word 365.

There does not seem to be a consistent program causing it and I have not tried opening other programs yet as it is annoying to have to restart my entire computer. Any help would be appreciated.

I have uploaded the files to my dropbox so that you can see the minidump info, if anything else is required please let me know.

The BSOD what you are facing is inbuilt in the ATI driver/GPU only.

As the first attempt, roll back the driver to the earlier version installed and worked without issue.
