I'm not even sure why it popped up when I clicked to play this song. iTunes is my default audio player and the file was not a wma, I don't think. I can't go back to look now because disk check is running.
If this is a _driver_ error as your error messages would suggest, then it is probably immaterial which software you are using

Sorry to say this, but if you are getting repeated hardware-config-related BSOD then it just ISN'T in shape
If you were one of my paying clients I would suggest one of two things :
1) Stick with this until you get your W7 bits, and then clean install Windows
2) Backup, format, clean install Vista
The option I would typically recommend is option 1)
There *is* an option 3) which would be to use a hack to install a trial copy of the W7 edition that you are entitled to with your free upgrade programme, and ensure that you will be able to renew the trial period every 25-29 days or so and therefore cover the period until you get your RTM bits and product key -- but I would only suggest this idea if you were currently willing to take the Windows enthusiast option ; and I kind of suspect that you would actually prefer some kind of my-computer-just-works option
