Need names: online gaming companies like valve(steam) pls, here's why?

Why I need these names (since google wasn't of any help)
I know valve (STEAM), GOG and Humble Bundle (not even sure if they're all the same thing)

Now the reason: I haven't downloaded any game illegally since the time of the ancient romans (a little exaggeration here ;-) I saw an advert by steam for 'Dark Souls''. It rang a bell, youtube showed me that yes in fact I had played this game. I looked through my CDs, nothing there, Steam, nothing there, gog, nothing there. So I was wondering how on earth and where did I end up playing this game. Hence my question. I don't own xbox or anything like that but do have an account with microsoft for games when a CD required it.

BSOD frequently while gaming on STEAM
Recently, my computer goes into BSOD around 10-15 mins after a game has launched through steam. I've already tried rolling back my nvidia driver, doing a clean driver install, etc, but none of that solved my problem. Any help will be much appreciated.
