Windows 7 Blue Screen on shutdown?

Every time i shut down my computer, it gives me the Blue Screen of Death. I click the Shutdown in the start menu, then it shows it logging off, then it says Shutting Down, then suddenly the blue screen shows up, then sometimes it will restart or just stay at the blue screen. When i first install Windows 7, it never did this... this is just recently...

Some specs if you need them:

Custom Built PC

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ 2.60 GHz

3GB of RAm

Windows 7 RC (32-Bit Edition)

Some NVIDIA GeForce/nForce Graphics card...

Thanks! =D

    The Windows operating system constantly refers to the registry to get information about all of the components such as hardware and software which are installed on the computer. The registry tells Windows what to do and how to access the various programs, files, and processes.However, the registry can contain bad information which sends Windows off doing useless tasks or running unneeded routines. Sometimes errors occur including the blue screen of death. Other times the system slows down. Because of the sheer number of factors that can affect the registry, there’s no one size fits all approach. You can’t just go into the registry and remove the bad information because it’s nearly impossible to decipher which information is good and which information is bad. That’s a job better suited for software. I should like to commend Registry Easy to you ! You can try ! Good luck!
