Ok, had a look at the logs...:

Please have a look at older drivers. Un-install and for those that you really need install newest from manufacturer site:

Chameleon 51.50 KB (52,736 bytes) 4/7/2005 9:38 PM ASUSTeK c:\program files (x86)\asus\splendid\chameleon.dll
ovs 35.00 KB (35,840 bytes) 6/3/2005 1:39 AM ASUSTek c:\program files (x86)\asus\splendid\ovs.dll

2005 seems way too old...

It is probably a good idea to update all ASUS software for your system.

Also, please go through your Windows Updates. Loads of errors there in unfinished updates. Do them one by one manually if you have to.

Post back your results or any questions you have...

Windows or ASUS?

Windows: Windows Update - Reset

ASUS: fill in your system spec's in the fields required. IF you're not sure on that, post back and I'll try to find a working link for you.
