It will unless you install the same things back that caused the problem in the first place.

Optimization software and driver updating software:
  • Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

    In the future, if you need help optimizing Windows 7, please post a thread in Performance & Maintenance - Windows 7 Forums or follow the tutorial enclosed in that forum to Optimize Windows 7.

  • We do not recommend automated driver update software. It often finds drivers for devices similar to but not exactly the same as the hardware actually on the system. This can lead to conflicts and blue screen crashes. If you need help finding driver updates for a certain device, please start a thread in Drivers - Windows 7 Forums instead of using software. Driver updates are not always necessary and some updates can actually decrease system stability rather than increase it, so it is usually better not to update unless a device or its driver is causing problems with the system. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

It is also difficult to know whether this was a hardware or software issue since the programs I mentioned in my previous post probably cleaned out all remnants of the crash reports that would have told us what caused the crashes... A clean install will at least get you started fresh and clean up the damage that those programs caused.

We'll have to see. The bugcheck codes indicate a driver issue, so if you install the same driver that caused the crashes, they may start again. I do not know what driver that is because the system tune-up software you used deleted the .dmp files.
