I have never had problems like this. I've built tons of computers, and I'm not a CS guy and I'm purely an enthusiast PC builder, but I'm pretty damn good with operating systems and desktop hardware. This is 3 different hard drives now, 3 clean installs of Win 7 64 bit ultimate, all of them with multiple crashes.
I did finally figure out what was causing it, as I was actually able to get the computer to blue screen on command last night. Might I add, it's not fucking easy to open a dump file. Maybe you guys know this, but to open one, I had to download .NET 4.0, find and download the debugging tool, do an internet search to find the symbols (whatever the fuck that means) for it to work, go into the command prompt and issue a command for the symbols, and then I still have to right click and run the program as an adminstrator (which, since I'm the only user and I assigned myself as an admin, I do not see why it won't work for my main profile and why I have to right click and run as admin).
All that for this nugget of wisdom:
Yeah, my MOTU driver is screwing everything up. Even though it works just fine and I record all the friggin' time with it on this computer and OS without issue. MOTU has no answer for me either. Supposedly this is their driver for Win7 for MOTU Firewire & USB units and it's just supposed to work.
So I either put up with random crashes from my MOTU box, or sell it and replace it.
Damn I love blue screens.

I haven't had a single issue with Win 7. I actually really like it. I'm running 32 bit 7 Ultimate with a few XP PCs networked in and I haven't really had too many issues with anything.
