games ether stop working or BSOD

as title say games will ether stop responding and force me to ctrl+alt+delete and close it or i will bsod. so far it has happened on all games i try new or old. as well as the heaven benchmark.

i also at one point was having problems with windows update but that may or may not be related...
i have run memtest 86 ( i think that's the name of it)
as well as the cpu test wprime both passed with no errors

This computer was put together just yesterday the 23rd. so it has not been running long. the ssd hdd and sound card are old everything else is brand new.

this is the first time i have ever had problems with a new computer build.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

This driver is associated with the program Gigabyte Easy Tune 6 driver, which is a known problem with W7. Please uninstall.

Also try and run a RAM - Test with Memtest86+ .

After please post back results.

sorry about that should have assumed it would be against forum rules it is everywhere else.

i went ahead and removed that easy tune program i don't know if that's all it takes. do i need to do anything else in order to remove it. i have had 2 more crashes sense then
one was right before i tried to remove the program the first time and the most recent was when i was checking to see if removing it fixed the problem after i had removed the program... ill attach both logs to this....

i also ran that memtest 86+ for 8 passes with no errors.
