Windows 7: BSOD: three in two days: thanks for the help

It's possible, but not likely. More likely is that the updated drivers have affected the installation of the game(s) or that you have a malware infection.

Here's a link to some free online scans (in case a virus has corrupted your current protection): Free Online AntiMalware Scanners (read the details at the link)

Well no viruses, i'll reinstall the game but I havent crashed yet and driver verifier has been running for 2 full days, ill play the game and if it still doesn't crash I'll assume we fixed it.

That's most likely the case. The way that we address BSOD issues is to try and fix it first, then use Driver Verifier just in case we didn't fix it.

Don't forget to turn Driver Verifier off - otherwise you'll get BSOD's sometime in the future and we'll be uncertain as to why.

Good luck!
