BSOD everytime I try to connect to Private Internet Access

Hi all,

My computer crashes everytime I try to connect to Private Internet Access, it seems to be some sort of networking issue but I have just installed and then reinstalled the new drivers. I'll have uploaded the crash dumps so you can see more detail. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks Derek.

That's weird because that must have been auto installed from my previous router.
