    Thanks for the continued assistance.

    The Tap driver comes from a VPN program that I was testing called OpenVPN. I uninstalled OpenVPN a few months ago - It seems that the driver remains. Do I simply go into the driver manager and right click and press uninstall?

    EDIT: My event viewer is so clean now!

    The newest Nvidia driver has been crashing my system. Went back to previous release, so far so good.

    Yep just suffered 4 monitor stutters in a row while watching a video.
    "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

    Interesting - I've found the latest drop to be more stable with my system (GTX 970). Interesting.

    Just updated to Version 347.09 - everything seems fine again.

    At least I haven't frozen yet! (Touch wood). I'm glad to see the reliability history graph line starting to go back up...

    Report:

    I've just noticed something very strange... My phone was connected to my PC and I received a call - instantly I was hearing buzzing interference from my headset and then the system froze... I have been reading around on various forums that have said EMI RFI noise can cause PCs to lockup.

    When I come back later I'm going to:
    Buy some EMI RFI Noise Ferrite Cores.
    Do some more testing with the phone.

    EDIT 1:
    I have switched to a USB>Micro USB cable which has ferrite cores.

    EDIT 2:
    That didn't help, called my phone again (connected to computer using the 'new' cable) and I froze, therefore I am certain that this is the cause of my troubles.
    What should I do next?

    Set a System Restore Point and then uninstall the driver in Device Manager.

    Done, getting very little errors in the event viewer now.

    Also I have ordered an new wireless card (TP-Link TL-WDN3800 N600 - which has windows 8 drivers). I'm currently using one from an old laptop and the realtek driver does not support windows 8. If you didn't know the Asus VII Gene has a MPCIE slot; so I have the wifi card inserted there.

    Any idea how a incoming signal/interference can cause a PC to lock-up?

    Check Task Manager and Resource Monitor to see what's consuming the resources.
    With Task Manager, use the Details tab and add I/O Reads and I/O Other columns to the display

    Sometimes we also find clues in the Admin event viewer logfile:
    Please do the following:
    - open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
    - expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
    - right click on Administrative Events
    - select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
    - save the file as Admin.evtx
    - zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
    - upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).
