Windows 7 Keeps BSOD After New Build

Specs: Windows 7, AMD Phenom ii x64
I recently upgraded my motherboard to a ASrock N68C-S UCC and i have a AMD Athlon x64 X2 6000+ with PC2-5300 DDR2 2gb DIMM inside.
I have done a fresh install of windows 7 on my pc but i was getting bsod every few minutes after opening a few applications. I noticed this was happening after i updated all updates via windows updates.
So i nuked the whole drive to make sure all data was clean (no corrupted data) and i done a new install of windows 7 again. This time was running fine untill i left my pc to update windows updates and when i come back i noticed it bsod again but i could not see what file was causing this. So restarted pc was on it for 5 minutes then bsod saying nfts.sys
I have done a system restore now to before the updates and it is running great no bsod while writing this so im pretty sure its windows updates messing with my hardware I think.
Anyone ever encounted this problem before as its driving me round the bend.

Download and install win 7 service pack 1 then use win update to install only critical updates.

Also note that if you are not installing the latest drivers from the motherboard manufacturer for your board and version of Windows 7 (32bit or 64bit) then windows update may be trying to do this for you and not getting it quite right. Make sure you select the latest drivers from the MB mfg's site (and any other hardware) yourself to get this correct. Make sure you are using the correct model number AND the correct Version Number of your board since this can matter also.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
