Computer crashes on desktop, fine in games

I am using a Gigabyte R7 360 2GB with  Windows 7 Ultimate and after installing non-whql-win7-64bit-radeon-software-crimson-16.11.2-nov4.exe it crashes after logging on and opening the desktop.

I was using a previous version of the driver, but even then, it would stay on the desktop for a few minutes before crashing.

However, if I opened Counter-Strike or Hotline Miami, I can play for a couple of hours with no more problem.

I tried using a different windows version and completely wiped my computer, but it still doesn't work.

With no drivers it works fine, but no gaming can happen. My motherboard BIOS is updated, so I really don't know what the problem is.

Please Help.

(I'll try uploading the dump files, but I'don't know how to do that)
