    Did a fresh windows install. Still crashing and BSOD with only the most basic drivers installed. Turned on verifier and got a crash. Disabled it, ran V2, enabled it again, crashed again, ran V2 again. Both are attached. I know if I try to run the verifier again ti will just crash almost immediately. Both times it was the same driver:

    hwinfo64a_160.sys

    Can't really find much info about it on the net. I tried removing it and it still crashed with that as the cause.

    Just got another BSOD that said CRITICAL PROCESS DIED but it didn't produce a crash file.

    I believe that files is a part of HWINFO64. Please uninstall the software and see if your Verifier problem on boot goes away. Just uninstall it from Add or Remove Programs, DO NOT use the advertised Advanced Uninstaller Pro.

    If it does then try Verifier again as directed.

    I went ahead and reloaded Windows from scratch and I am now able to run verifier without any issues. But I now face a new dilemma. I get the crashes when I play games but a lot of the times even though a bluescreen does indeed flash on the screen, it doesn't stay long enough to produce the report. What you see is the computer freezes, you see the blue screen flash and that weird noise, and then it reboots. When the computer boots back up and I log in, I do not see a new dump file.

    I ran verifier and added all of the check boxes and drivers except the ones the MS says says not to and the computer runs just fine with verifier on. However, when I try to play games with verifier on, it causes such frame drops that it renders the game unplayable. Without verifier on, I have to play the game anywhere between half an hour to an hour before it crashes usually. I tried playing it for about 10 minutes with verifier on and succeeded in only getting a headache but no crash. Should I try and run a stress tester like Aida64 with the verifier on to see if it will cause it to crash?

    Try AIDA64 and/or the following without Verifier first, see what happens:

    For both the above, read the instructions carefully and watch your system when testing.
    If it starts spitting out problems and you can't shut it down - simply turn the system off/unplug it from the wall

    After the Windows reload and the removing of HWinfo the blue screens has stopped. It seems HWinfo goes after something to try and get a reading and if something is already monitoring it, it freaks out. I also had the CAM software by NZXT which is also a tool that shows hardware stats running.

    Thanks everyone for all of your help and thank you for you patience with me. I'm also grateful for the tools I learned to help me troubleshoot it myself.
