Windows 7: BSOD playing games in general, problem related to nvlddmkm.sys

BSOD playing games in general, problem related to nvlddmkm.sys

Hello, I've been recently having problems and they are all apparently connected to nvlddmkm.sys and I don't know how to fix this, I've looked into this a lot and I'm not able to find any solutions. I have a NVIDIA GeForce 610M and I tried using the latest version as well (currently I have a version I believe it was released in February).
Thank you in advance.
EDIT: Forgot to mention the fact that this only happens when playing games, which so far never gave me a single problem. Other uses do not cause any crashes.

Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+5036fa )
The blue text is the type of exception in this case it's an access violation, this means the CPU tried to access memory that it couldn't address, this can occur because of a null reference or a reference to memory that has already been freed.
The green text is the address of the faulting instruction.
Lets take a look.

A move instruction is to move data from one storage space to another.

I think it looks like wrong data has tried to be moved, it should involve the rip register.

Looking at the timestamp I can see that you have a late version.

You should roll back the driver.

Avast is also causing problems.
Remove it and replace it with MSE and Malwarebytes.

Hello, thank you very much for your answer!
By "roll back your driver" do you mean I should try a newer or older version?

Older version. Sometimes, SOMETIMES (I gotta stress this as it's iffy), Beta drivers fix the issue.

Yes rolling back driver involves using an older driver than what you already have.
I suggest going back a few months.

Again, thank you so much for your help.
I think I fixed it, but, instead of rolling back, before you answered me, I installed the 337.88 driver (which was released yesterday?) and appears to be working just fine. Anyway, I'll give my computer a bit of time and if nothing bad happens, I'll mark the thread as solved.

EDIT: Ok, seems pretty good so far, I believe the problem's solved. Thanks for the assistance!
