Actually, Jonathan is correct. McAfee is a known cause of BSOD's on some Win 7 systems. If updating the drivers did not solve the problem, that would have been my next recommendation followed by turning on Driver Verifier.

Please post back in a couple of days and let us know how your system is running. It you have had no further crashes, we can mark the thread as solved. If you have another BSOD, please post and upload it ASAP.

I wish you the best.
There was abour 8 drivers that I updated, including graphics, wireless, and others that I cannot remember I also did I spyware and malware scan and 5 spywares were found, so I cleared them and so far I have had no problems, and my computer seems a little faster

Thanks for your help :) I will report back in a couple of days
You are most welcome. I am glad I was able to help you. You did very well with updating the drivers. And that was good thinking to to do a malware scan.

Looking forward to next post saying you are still running smoothly. Keep in mind that McAfee and Win 7 do not always play nicely together. :)
