Windows 7: WIndows 7 Will No Longer Boot

WIndows 7 Will No Longer Boot

Today I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Build 7232 because it was newer and also because Build 7077 would no longer boot. I have reinstalled 7077 and reinstalled 7232 twice. Windows works okay for a while and then will freeze and I will have to power off the PC and restart. But when I try to turn it back on it hangs at the Starting Windows screen. My other desktops have no troubles with Windows 7 at any build. I can start in Safe Mode but nothing else. Thanks in advance.
PS I had just finished installing Adobe CS4 software and was using Google Chrome when it froze. BD 09 is my antivirus with firewall disabled, firewall is Windows Firewall. And all are x64 installations.

Hold on, I am actually going to try pulling my sound card from the motherboard. I realized I had just shortly before, possibly at the time of, I may have been installing the sound card driver.

Wow, that solved it. Not sure why I didn't try this first. Creative is bad for Windows 7 I have heard. I wonder how I didn't notice it on previous installations. Anyway thanks :P
I suppose if anyone has any issues with booting, they can see this
Err, if the beta driver from Creative didn't work what would I use?
