Windows 7: PC freezes when I launched Firefox/IE, faulty drivers?

PC freezes when I launched Firefox/IE, faulty drivers?

I think there might be a conflict with the driver for my wireless adapter and something else on this computer. Everything runs fine when in safe mode, computer doesn't freeze. But in normal mode, as soon as I launch Firefox/IE, the computer freezes.

The drivers for my wireless adapter was automatically downloaded from windows update. Since the freezing occurred I decided to download the drivers from the manufacturers website directly. But the drivers aren't digitally signed by windows so it won't let me use the manufacturer's drivers. I don't wanna use F8 all the time to bypass signed drivers.

Or I could be wrong and it could be something else entirely.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit
Wireless adapter is Airlink AWLH6080 300N Wireless PCI Adapter

Thanks for any input.
