Windows 7: BSOD due to browsing!?

BSOD due to browsing!?

Hello all! First; i tried some searching and I haven't really found any similar cases, which is why I am posting.

After running first XP and than Vista on my rig I ghosted the Vista (x64) install yesterday and formatted for Win 7 (RC). All installed just fine and appears stable as long as I do nothing. I haven't installed any supplier drivers, but run from Win 7 integrated drivers only. I went on with updating through Win Update with everything there was and then went on to the typical utility stuff (i.e. Flash, Acrobat Reader etc.).

My issue is that on SOME web pages my computer now go straight to blue screen of death memory dumping. An example of such a page is Nvidia's (nvidia.com), which will send me straight to BSOD as soon as the name is resolved and I have a title. ^^

I tried restoring to a system restore point prior to all 3rd party installs (such as Flash), but I have no different behavior. I am about to try a clean install to see if it persists, but I am curious as to if anyone else has seen or heard of this tiny issue before and has any interesting theories on it?

And to clarify; no Asus drivers were installed and no the BIOS is not updated, but on the other hand - if it was BIOS incompatability I would kinda expect some generela stability issues, not connected to sepcific home pages.

Any ideas? Aliens in my RAM? Microsoft censoring the internet? Computer come alive and has a taste of its own?

Please feel free to assist!

Does it crash when you do anything else on the computer? When your computer crashes what's the error code at the bottom? Is it the same each time or different?
Try running a memory test
Memory Diagnostics Tool
or
Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

Let us know how you get on.

Crashes: Nope, only when browsing certain pages. Memory should be fine - ran Memtest less than a week ago, but I will go there if reinstall doesn't help. After all - everything works fine until it breaks. ^^

Error code: Not @ home at the moment, I will check details as soonish as I am. My impression is that it is the same, though. I'll also upload a minidump just in case anyone is serously curiout.

Thanks by the way!

Browser: Up to date patched version of MSIE8
AV: None installed yet (minutes into the installation, hadn't even downloaded drivers to my gfxboard as of yet when it started crashing - at those moments I resolve the issue first, in case re-install becomes the most probable solution, and continue with the application layer later)
FW: Only hardware, no software and Win FW disabled

No accelerators installed or applied, MSIE8 running in compatability mode to enhance for MSIE8, no 3rd party plugins. Flash, shockwave and a bunch of Active X controllers installed. No java installed (yet).
