I am having a similar issue. While playing World of Warcraft, I get a random
CTD and occasionally a BSOD. I have done a full system reload without
installing any updates (except loading the nvidia drivers for forceware and
vid card) and everything worked fine until i enabled Auto-update. There
appears to be a problem with one of the updates that M$ has released but i am
not about to go update-by-update to try and find out which one it is as this
involves about 1hr of gameplay per crash. I am running:
Asus m2n32-sli deluxe wireless
BFG 8800 GTX oc 768
Corsair XMS 2-gig (checked and verified)
If i close the game quick enough, windows shows a "R300" driver crash. I am
not sure what this driver is, as the only thing that ever shows is some epson
printer, which i dont have or have loaded.
