Well, I downloaded the other free shareware Drive cleaning software and used it. First I had uninstalled the drivers, reinstalled the CD software drivers that actually came with the GPU, then I was going to uinstall those drivers as recommended by the software before using it.
Typically I do this with add or remove programs, but for some reason NVIDIA drivers weren't listed so I went ahead and used the Driver cleaner to begin with, it highlighted all the display driver files and I went to "clean" them. It cleaned most of them with the exception of a few which it kept popping up an error message. :S
After that, I reinstalled the latest EVGA GPU drivers, rebooted the computer and started up the game which ran for a good 20-30 minutes before the computer froze. I manually restarted the computer to find that the settings were stuck on 1280x960px. Immediately I went to add or remove programs to try and uninstall the new drivers, though I found NVIDIA drivers in the listing, it prompted me that this did not exist, so I removed it from the list and installed the newest drivers...again, restarted the computer to find it returned back to the original settings.
No other updates yet. Ugh, annoying.
Still crashing, also crashes to bsod if I am rendering a video.
The bsod's usually vary from 0x0b8 to 0x0c4.
I uninstalled the newest drivers and installed an older driver.
