Windows 7

Hi There, thanks for your help. I downloaded and installed the new driver and ran a scan...this is the result below. If I understand correctly, overclocking is running a component at a higher speed than what the part was manufacturered for, correct? (I did some reading on wikipedia) but how do I know if I'm doing this? and how do I make sure I don't do it? I am not running anything abnormal on my system...just photo editing software...with my media player running in the background (music) and then that's when I've had the BSOD occur.
