Raptr video capture causing video driver crash and then BSOD

I am having repeated issues with video driver crashes while recording. It doesn't seem to affect Hearthstone, Warthunder, or Smite. However, the crashes are near constant with Skyrim and XCom: Enemy Within (sometimes I can play for close to an hour without issue, most of the time, I can play for about 15 minutes and then it crashes). The system will recover the driver, but I have to restart the system. If I don't, then as soon as I start to run any game, the system will BSOD. I have uninstalled and reinstalled my video drivers and the Raptr application itself, but the problem has not been resolved. According to Event Viewer, the file that is causing the issue is amdkmdap. I am really getting to my wits end with this, and don't want to have to go as far as reinstalling the OS. Any ideas?

@anightfire - Do you only get this issue with Raptr/AMD Gaming Evolved running in the background?

Basically the same issue- I can run Skyrim without Raptr with no crashes.  With Skyrim and Raptr it has constantly crashed during game.  I have over 360 hours in Skyrim, but only 2 something hours with Raptr..and that was because I did not figure out it was causing it.  I tried it again today - with the updates and all- still crashed every 2 minutes.  Nothing is hot or over clocked.

@cya21st - Have you tried disabling the in-game overlay for Skyrim? It tends to have issues. Are you auto-recording while playing Skyrim, or does Raptr just have to be open in the background?

 Verun - No.  I do not use overlay on any games.  And Raptr was okay for a in Skyrim it is bad ..still.  I can play Payday 2, Borderlands 2,etc on high settings and no problems with Raptr.  So far Skyrim now.

@cya21st - What kind of mods are you running in Skyrim?

What resolution are you running as well? Windowed? Fullscreen?

If your response is fairly normal, then we'll probably need to ask for logs and create a ticket for this issue.
