OS: Microsoft Windows XP SP3
AMD Sempron 3000+
447 MB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce4 MX Integrated GPU

It all started last night right after I uninstalled the game "Perfect World". The game severely slowed my computer and took up too much memory. When I rebooted after cleaning and defragging, it Blue Screened.

It told me there there may be a driver issue and gave me this:

"STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF7039C80, 0xF703997C)

vsdatant.sys - Address F4FB168A base at F4F76000, DateStamp 48ae3075"

I had no idea what it meant (still don't), so I rebooted in safe mode. When I tried to run a scan with AVG, a shutdown countdown came up and restarted the computer. AVG was completely gone now, Internet was disabled, and all my startup programs were disabled.
I screwed around with msconfig and finally got the Internet and my startup programs back up, but now the Internet's acting weird. After so many pages, a "Network Timeout" page comes up and I have to restart the computer just to continue using it...

I downloaded and ran SuperAntiSpyware -- it found and removed 5 threats. Nothing changed (still Blue Screened on reboot, weird Internet).
I then ran Panda ActiveScan 2.0 -- it found nothing.
I then downloaded LSPFix hoping it would fix the Internet, but it found nothing wrong.
I ran some more scans and nothing...

I don't know what else to do or what the Blue Screen's talking about, so any help please?
Thanks in advance.

I've attached my HighjackThis Log, DDS, and Attach.
