Cracks can definitely create conflicts with Win 7. Let's see how your system does with these cracks removed.

Agree with Carl, also D/L'ing these files from not so nice sites is a known way to get viruses, malware and rootkits.

Ah, okay. I'll report if something unusual happens again, but so far, everything's fine, and I'm pretty sure that BSOD problem is fixed, so, thanks for that, that was my main problem.

Anyway, could you recommend me a program that creates some kind of backup of my system at this point, so If I get a virus or something like that, I can just revert it back to the current state?

Or will the default system restore be good enough for this?

I would use the restore point system and a good imaging program. Here is a tutorial on a good program: Imaging with free Macrium. I use Macrium and restore points.

Hi Skygrinder and welcome to the Forum. Was glad to see that Dave & Carl were able to help solve your earlier problems. They are both hard workers here at to Forum.
As regards to backup software, using Windows Restore Points is a good way to go back in time to recover from a botched driver or program install but I would not rely on it to save my bacon in more serious issues.
If you have an External USB Hard Drive you can Image your whole system safely to that device. Many here at the Forum use a free product called Macrium Reflect.
Very easy to use and also very fast. You can download it at the link below. Also there are some very fine Tutorials on it's use in our Tutorial Section.
Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

Also, if you are looking for just a file/folder backup program, you may want to try Cobian Backup, also used by many fo our members. See link below.

Hope this helps. Don't be a stranger - lot's to learn through our Tutorials section.

Regards
JohnnyA

Darn- beat me to it Carl. lol

So, guys, the BSOD happened just now, it took it a while, so I thought it was fixed, but unfortunately, its still there.

I've attached the whole report thing, like in first post AND just dump, so take your pick. Should I continue now to the 3rd step? (Running Driver Verifier) or what? :/
