PC crashes when i play certain games

For the past few days, my computer has been crashing when i play certain games (note my friends have the same games as me and they have no problem with it). The screen just freezes up and i have to manually shut it down. Then i get problems restarting it up, but if i leave it for a while it will startup with a diskchk and 2/3 times (its crashed 3 times so far) theres always something about a corrupt file being deleted and something about indexes, then it runs fine, until the next crash. Im quite sure its not a virus cause ive scanned my computer clean and im quite a cautious person.

In addition when going thru the event viewer, i noticed this pops up around every crash. "Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected."

My specs are:
Windows Vista Home Premium
Nvidia 9600gs (756mb i think)
Intel Quad Core Q8300 @ 2.50 GHz
3GB Ram.

-Thx, any help would kindly be appreciated.
