    Most vista crashes are due to nvidia drivers. Try installing a older version of the driver.

    I had that issue with drivercleaner too, it just sits there until you end process. I think you should give the xtreme G drivers a shot. They give you better image quality for a very small performance hit. I do still occasionally get BSODs but I put that down to my system being OCed too much (still need to tweak a couple voltages), but I've not has the "pink screen of retardation" since xtreme G drivers.
