Are you getting any error messages or BSOD messages? Run through out troubleshooting document to see if it resolves the crashing. Use DDU to remove your current drivers.
I actually update my drivers manually, through Windows device manager.
It says my driver software has been correctly installed and that I should restart for changes to apply
After logging on after the restart, the screen flickers and goes green.
After rebooting into safe mode, where it doesn't crash I get a dialog box saying that there was a BSOD, but it doesn't explain it any further.
Try the above then. ^
I tried and the above, and it doesn't seem to help.
For the DISM thing, I am on windows 7, so I used the update i got from the windows website.
In fact it seems less stable now.
Okay. I would next try a clean installation of Windows. Fully update Windows before you install any other software, then try updating to the latest Crimson drivers once Windows is fully up to date, including all optional and recommended updates.
I already tried that.
I got a windows 7 iso from a Digital River mirror(official iso) and reinstalled windows.
At first it wasn't updating, so i used wsus offline and installed some updates, after which, I downloaded the rest of the updates through windows update.
It definitely more stable now, as it doesn't crash on the desktop, but now crashes when i open my browser.
Do you know any modded drivers for better stability?

Having just reinstalled my Win7...I know what it takes to update it. If you stopped before you got a message "Your computer is up to date, there are no more updates for your computer" then you are wasting your time. It must be fully updated (Win7) before you even think of installing any AMD driver. It took two days for me. If you are having problems with Windows Update....read this > Following a clean install, Windows Update remains at "Checking For - Microsoft Community
Right now I've installed all updates, except the language packs.
Not sure what else to do
It hasn't helped.
Right now, it can stay indefinitely just opened on the desktop, but if I open my browser or randomly, while loading a CS map, it crashes.
After running Whocrashed, I get this:
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\112016-10264-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x4AD42C)

Bug check description: This bug check indicates that a fatal hardware error has occurred. This bug check uses the error data that is provided by the Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA).
This is likely to be caused by a hardware problem problem. This problem might also be caused because of overheating (thermal issue).
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.
If I upload the crash dump to OSR online, it says:
A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
