Glad you got it figured out. Sometimes the newest isn't always the best.

Are you still experiencing any blue screens?

Well I haven't gotten any yet today, but it's so random that it's hard to tell if it worked or not. Will have to play some more games and see if they crash, but so far it looks fine.

Just got another one this morning and it seems to follow the same pattern. After having installed the updated graphics driver and Directx runtime, I still got this when playing World of Warcraft.

What does that do? Or more accurately, what did I do when I re-named it

That is the pseudo-interface for the AI Booster program.
The driver gives the AI Booster access to the clockgen and
the like.
It belongs to an ASUS motherboard utility. It does nothing except cause BSOD on systems. By changing it from .sys to .bak you have prevented the driver from loading.

I was browsing the web while installing something. I don't know if doing those two things caused the issue or not, but now I'm paranoid that I might never be able to make these stop. I'm going to go to the Asus website and try to find some updated drivers for my mobo and such, and maybe that'll help, I don't know what else to do anymore.
