Windows 7: Black Screen of Death, Highly Related to LMI Hamachi & Hotspot Shield

Windows 7 Premium 64-bit
Black Screen of Death, Highly Related to LMI Hamachi & Hotspot Shield

I used to have Hamachi and Hotspot Shield, weeks ago, 'till I shut down my computer and rebooted. I got a black screen after log-in. So, this happens whenever I do one of these actions, and restart/shut down system:

>LMI Hamachi is installed
>LMI Hamachi is uninstalled
>Hotspot Shield is installed
>Hotspot Shield is uninstalled

And as stated, system is them shut down/rebooted, proceeding with black screen error.

The only way I can sometimes fix this is by:

>Going in safe mode, SAFE MODE IS ALWAYS ACCESSIBLE, and then going to various system restores, and then doing the "recommended system restore". Otherwise won't fix.

Weird though, has never ever happened with anything else, just those both, which modify networking processes I think.

So, I am facing a decision. I need Hamachi. What can I do to ensure no more black screens, while having my computer safe?

What is wrong with my computer? Or is it UAC Settings? By the way, I run Avast! Free Antivirus and make weekly full scans, as well as a few pre-boot scans every month. I've NEVER had a virus.

So, any ideas? Please help. I need LMI Hamachi, but I can't face having to fix this again. Makes me stressful.

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.
