I get a blue screen on startup staying a device driver is attempting to corrupt the system.

'A faulty driver currently on the kernel stack must be replaced with a working version.'

I haven't installed any new hardware or software.

I updated my video driver a couple of weeks ago with no immediate problems.

I've tried restoring to a previous version and that hasn't helped either.

I can provide any other information as needed.

Do you see any driver details when you get the BSOD, bad GPU drivers for example may produce something Nvidea or AMD/Radeon driver details.

 

Have you tried starting the computer in Safe Mode only.

Doesn`t help any I`m afraid, can you check for any crash dmps for us, "how to" below;
 
1. Copy any dmp files from C:\Windows\Minidump onto the desktop.
2. Select all of them, right-click on one, and click on Send To> New Compressed (zipped) Folder.
3. Upload the zip folder using the Attach button, bottom left of the dialogue input box 
 
 
It does look to be driver related if you can start in Safe Mode, is that with Networking as well, let us know when you send us any crash dmps.
