My computer keeps crashing and today it rebooted displaying the message "Windows has recovered from a problem." I clicked send error report and it said something about third party drivers and that I should uninstall them but, how am I supposed to know what drivers are third party? Is there a program that can check them all or is there an easy way for me to check them?

3rd party drivers are pretty much anything that did not come with windows

Rather than uninstall, try updating all your drivers

Have you recently done a Windows Update that included a Video Driver update? In my experience this problem is almost always the video card. I NEVER download the drivers Microsoft offers for video cards - learned that one the hard way.

Go to the website of the manufacturer of your video card and then download the latest driver. Hipefully, that will take care of it.
