Windows 7: Too Many BSOD's now

An Unknown Module(unidentifiable driver) is the cause, this happens when old software/old drivers are installed
Identifying it can be difficult, remove any old software that use drivers

Was this the same for all 50 dump files? Apologies for being a pain but i was looking for something a little stronger to go off than just randomly deleting software. It defeats the purpose of having an operating system if i can't use software with it. You found other issues previously so just wondering if there is something else i can try before this, as to be honest starting from scratch sounds less time consuming than removing an application at a time and waiting to see if that was the lucky winner or not? Is there a way to list all drivers installed and i can try to narrow this down a little?

It was mentioned in the last dumps. To view all your drivers, open an elevated command prompt and enter "driverquery", all dates will be listed along with the drivers

Would i be right in thinking that if all modules are displayed with the drivers in the output of a driverquery and none are marked 'unknown' then the culprit is not going to be there?

The culprit is probably an old driver
