    After looking at the minidump you attached, the BSOD is probably caused by : csrss.exe, in the search box under start type: sfc /scannow then enter, restart your computer after it finishes

    This is a long shot but one worth taking. If the csrss is corrupted its easy to fix, but first try making another account on the computer with admin rights, try the game and see if you get the bsod. If not it is the csrss file on the other account causing the problem, back your files up and delete that account.

    Csrss stands for client/server run-time subsystem and is an essential subsystem that must be running at all times. But can become corrupted and is one of the many favorite targets of viruses.
