So my computer was running fine, I had no errors or anything up until yesterday.
The only thing I installed yesterday was an update to my graphics card drivers and display drivers etc through Catalyst Control Center.

It popped up on my screen and told me new updated were available. I followed the prompts and installed a bunch of drivers related to my GPU.
Later that day I had my first Bluescreen. Since then I have had about 3 Bluescreens.

I was talking to a friend and he suggested that it may have something to do with CCC not removing the old drivers first while going through it's automatic update thing.

Why the hell wouldn't it? Seems kind of stupid...

Anyway, any help with my problem would be much appreciated. :D

 
Yes, most of Bluescreen (BSOD) problem are caused by BAD driver, the latest version is not always the best, sometime the older driver can be much stable.

So, my suggest is to remove your latest driver using driver sweeper:

and re-install your most work driver (before updating).
