Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Hello Everyone,
Sorry for the delay, we had a family emergency and have been out of town for the last while.

I finally figured out how to make a boot-able W7 Professional 64bit installation USB using my old XP 32 bit machine, and it definitely sped thinks up.

However the games my wife likes that I mentioned earlier no longer work properly. After running the games, anywhere from a few seconds to a couple of hours later, they crash the machine and it has to be restarted, about 1/3 of the time she gets The blue screen of death (BSOD?). I've tried running them in compatibility mode to no avail.

When I installed the OS from the USB drive I could not find a way to format the HD. Is there a way, and do you think it would make a difference? Or am I way off track?

Thanks, Tom
