That's good to know, try to keep a note of what drivers and programs you install, and if any BSODs occur after installing these drivers or programs.

Phew, just froze. Seriously, I'm so pissed off at this. Any ideas? I'll probably run memtest today, I won't be using the computer anyway...

What is the temperature of your computer like? Have you managed to install all the Windows Updates?

Windows 7 Professional x64

Could this possibly be the RAM clock? It's faster than the RAM I had before, but the BIOS seemed to have changed it automatically...

Either way, here's the list of things I have installed.
→ Vuze (Azureus)
→ Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile
→ Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Extended
→ NVIDIA Drivers and controllers
→ Dropbox
→ Flash Player 11
→ Creative Drivers and controllers
→ Alienware Command Center
→ Mozilla Firefox 20.0.1 x86
→ Mozilla Thunderbird 17.0.5 x86
→ Mozilla Firefox 23.0a1
→ Mozilla Thunderbird 22.0a2
→ Open Broadcaster Software
→ Dolby Axon
→ Skype
→ Visual C++ Redistributable 2008 x64
→ Alienware TactX Mouse CI
→ Mozilla Maintenance Service
→ Songbird 2.2.0
→ DW 1525 Driver Installation

I installed all of these in rapid succession soI can't really remember which one was installed last.

EDIT: Not overheating. Computer was cold at the time.

It's best in a troubleshooting install if you install Windows Updates/drivers first, then any missing drivers, then programs gradually so you can gauge performance after each step.

There isn't really any hurry to install everything at once as you did, so either start over or roll back to a point just after install and this time follow the steps in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to get a perfect baseline install, then monitor performance after each program is installed enough that you know it isn't freezing.

Have you tested all hardware as shown in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7
