Hi
Do you have CPU ?
And Motherboard ?

Remove this McAfee garbage ......
Install ESET Antivirus
Scan you system for Viruses

Then you can run Furmark for 60 min. to test you GPU for errors
If you have no restarts , blue screens or any other strange behavior then you`r OK

shut down auto driver updates and windows updates.

have you been to windows updates lately?

uninstall and reinstall graphics driver......... do a custom or advanced install and only install the graphics driver.......... not sound driver.

boot up in safe mode with networking. do an anti virus scan...........or try an online anti virus scan... ( trend micro house calls ) ( complete scan )

have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling mcafee and then updating and doing scans?

check windows firewall.

is your wireless adapter safe?secure?

Ok here are my answers to your Questions.

Ok for both Auto driver updates and Windows updates I have them both disabled.(since I installed Windows 7 Ultimate)

No I have not been to windows update lately.

I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers specifically like this before(no changes).

I've done a antivirus scan in safe mode using McAfee(no changes)

I recently updated McAfee and did a scan it found 2 things and removed them but had no effect on the crashing.

My firewall is ran through McAfee

and define what you mean by "is your wireless adapter safe?secure?"

I have never sow Furmark to destroy 100% working GPU !
Over the faulty one maybe .....
But how can you tell how long is this "faulty" GPU will last witout testing it or just load an web pages coz you`r scared to not kill it in game .........
If there is an HW Error in you system FURMARK will bring it ON
- you load you GPU at 90-100 %
- you load you CPU at over 50% ( depends on the CPU )
So the purpose of Furmark is to HEAT you GPU and some heat on CPU
If you have any problems they will pop-up
And do`nt worry all GPU have Safety Cirquit from thermal failures ......... if you hit over 95 - 105 degree celsius they shut down the GPU to prevent damage .....
SO you can destroy GPU that have faulty thermal cut off cirquit - no argue here :) 
But it must be faulty at the first place ...

P.S. - and dude ......... i`ll thest this 10 years old Maxtor HDD for errors also ..... Hirens Boot Cd > MHDD

I hope you can count to 100 before you get BSOD or something ,,,,,, if you have any problem it will fail at the first 10 minutes btw :) 

I`m not sure for any thing unless that is what i`ll do if i have hands on you PC
