    You really do not need the software . . when windows detects the new card and looks for drivers, point it to the disc that came and only let it load drivers. The Windows wireless management is much better than any third party software.

    a bit redundant as you know whats crashing the PC -

    try simpswr suggestion first

    the following will allow you to see the bluescreen


    goto
    control panel>
    system>
    advanced tab>
    startup and recovery - settings>
    under the title - system failure
    untick - automatically restart

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;320299

    now when it crashes - it willnot restart and the blue screen should stay on the screen
    post the info on the screen
    it will give the errorcodes and a filename, if caused by a driver.
