Windows 7: Windows 7 64 bit Freezes and cannot boot new programs (DCOM?)

Can you disable Driver Verifier.
If you get any more dump files after let us know.
The bugcheck is unknown but it is pointing to your graphics driver.
It could be a false positive so let us know if any happens after Driver Verifier has been disabled.

Okay, Driver Verifier disabled now. Honestly I'd forgotten it was active again, so it was good you reminded me.

Yeah, I was aware that it was the AMD driver that crashed in game; since I read the BSOD and since I could, I actually used WhoCrashed this time, which is why I was thinking it was unrelated, and its probably just Wildstar stressing the Graphics Card out since its currently in Open Beta.

My Radeon still has its moments of derp, after all... since its not exactly great I may eventually consider getting a new nVidia. Though it seems to be behaving slightly better since they released a new 'stable' driver set (except the above BSOD, of course)

I've also uninstalled Spybot since it was causing some errors like this in Event Viewer:
Quote:
Activation context generation failed for "c:\program files (x86)\spybot - search & destroy 2\Updates\Extracts\SDWSCSvc.exe". The setting http://schemas.microsoft.com/SMI/2005/WindowsSettings^antispywareProductDisplayName is not registered.
My Last Spyware scan came up blank anyway; but I'll reinstall it eventually when I do a new check in a couple of weeks, which might fix the above anyway.

I also used an elevated command prompt to delete the Netgear Device Checking Service since this was still showing up:
Quote:
The NETGEAR WNDA3200 Device Checking Service service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.
And lo behold, its first startup for ages where it was superfast, and there has not been even a single error logged.

I still have an unknown device. Which I know is most likely the ASUS motherboard monitoring thing; but since it was causing errors and its driver is known to be glitchy in Win 7 64 and serves no purpose anyway without the ASUStools, I might as well leave it there~ hurts no-one whilst it sits there unknown...

Crash dumps are out my area... I'm going to step down from this thread now

I wish you the best of luck!

Mostly uneventful the last couple of days. I'm still a bit suspicious of the new AMD drivers, since the system froze again whilst in a screensaver a couple of days back; but having disabled screensavers things seem to be okay. Its weird, but more often than not; I'm wondering if its old 32 bit programs having a problem with the 64 bit windows more than anything else...

I still have some black screen freezes and artifacts (in 2d and 3d apps) that now all seem to stem from the Radeon; but windows itself derps at these and doesn't report any errors. Seems like a problem with some Radeon R7 260x cards freezing their memory clock causes this from my research; so I've requested an RMA on the card and an upgrade to a Radeon R9 270 from PC Specialist, to which they have agreed. Hopefully this will fix my issues.

Just thought I'd update to say that (touchwood) the new R9 270 arrived, was installed, and has not glitched at all yet, and in fact seems to perform much better than its predecessor.
