If its crashing only with Arduino it points to the serial driver being buggy.

To clarify, the USB serial chip driver - are you using Uno or an FTDI based Arduino?

Just to confirm that it crashes WITHOUT Uno connected (and it also crashes WITH it connected).
In fact I uninstalled the Arduino driver to rule out problem there - and it still gives bsod (not every time but if it verifies successfully and I try verifying again it will probably crash and if I keep verifying it will definitely crash). To rule out a problem with a particular sketch, I tried different sketches with the same result.
I go back to my earlier point that the crash occurs on verifying/compiling so how can it be driver related? - but that's my non-expert thought.
Thanks to those who have commented so far

I've re-installed Vista and made sure all drivers, applications etc are up-to-date and working.
But no change! - blue screen crashes most of the time as previously described.
So where do I go from here - try an earlier version of Arduino?
I'd be really grateful for advice. Is anyone using Arduino successfully on laptop with Vista?

I have the same BSOD problem upon PC reboot or even "at random". I started having this problem since when I use Arduino ethernet, programmed with USB serial Light adapter (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/USBSerial)

I use Win7 x64
