Games & Applications using Direct 3D in DirectX 9C Crashing

Reading the forums on these, the blame was being put on Win 7 64-bit, HOWEVER, Reinstalling 188 completely eliminates the crashing. So everyone's blaming Win7-64 for what appears to be an Nvidia driver issue. With the Sony_Nvidia 188 drivers the_F11 is running these things under Win 7-64 flawlessly.
