BSOD and Downloading Issues

The first problem I'm having is with random BSOD crashes. Using WhoCrashed, most of the crashes seem to come from the kernel and says its likely due to third party drivers. I think I have heard people say that k-lite codec pack is known for causing BSOD, but I'm not certain that is the problem. Also, I have ran across one crash report saying it was caused by my video card driver, which is Nvidia version 275.33. I have read people complaining about this driver causing BSOD problems, and since most of my crashes are usually when I'm watching something, I'm inclined to believe that it probably has to do with at least a decent chunk of my BSOD problems. So I went to their website and tried to download an update, which leads to my second problem.

Certain types of downloads seem to fail on me. For example, I downloaded the file for the update, then when I go to install the files I get a 7-zip: Data Error. Also, when I try to download an OS update for my iPod Touch on iTunes, the download will seem to complete but then it will say the data was corrupted during download. I think I had this same problem downloading an OS update for my Galaxy Tab through Kies too. I can circumvent the problem by finding an alternate download method, and I am no network specialist but this leads me to believe that all of these download methods probably use a common protocol that my computer isn't handling correctly (wild guess).

I'm using Windows 7 Pro if that helps. I'm probably gonna end up trying to sell this desktop and build a new one with ATI instead of Nvidia, but if I sell it to friends or family I definitely want to try and get rid of the BSOD problems first.
