That is why I went out and bought the Home Premium version. I figured that when I installed Home Premium, it would erase build 7600 and I would have a working version of Windows 7. I guess I was wrong, how can I get it off my computer because I think that could be the issue...
You can do via another pc,load it to a disc.
Then load the drivers that way,if thats not possible, you can try adding the drivers at the install screen when installing the OS.
Use the advanced option,format the drive and then click load drivers,load via the CD.
Build 7600 is the final RTM build,perhaps the download you have is bugged.

If theres an option to install the drivers you want it should yes.

Well, I've updated the drivers, and it's still freezing. The only a few things I can think of now. One is a BIOS update, but I have no idea how to do that. Also, it still says that the drivers for my coprocessor are not installed. Where can I get these?

Try this

here are a couple of things I would try first in msconfig go to the boot tab and click on advanced options and under number of processors and make sure it's set to 4

then in task scheduler look for RAC and delete it see if this helps

While in safe mode, I don't experience any freezing.. What does this rule out as the problem?

Safe Mode

a lot of stuff is not running in safe mode you can start in msconfig and on the startup tab uncheck everything that is not needed which would be most of it then on the services tab check the box that says hide microsoft services then uncheck pretty much everything that is left reboot and see how it goes if everything is ok if you want to you can re enable that stuff one by one to find the offender but i would leave much of it off as its not needed and only slows the computer

The processors was set to 1, I changed it to 4. Also, by RAC do you mean "RacTask"?
