Installing the SB Audigy 2 Platinum Ex Drivers causes my PC to constantly reboot for no reason and results in all CD-Based installations (Games, Software, etc.) complaining that the installation media has been corrupted!!!

Uninstall the drivers and everything is fine!!!

I don't know if this applies to your situation, but the Audigy 2 Platinum is EXTREMELY picky about how the drivers are installed. During your original installation, did you cancel the Windows new hardware installation and run everything from the included CD? I know I didn't and I had BIG problems. I hope this helps.
