Hello, let me tell you some news: The last time I formatted my pc (approx 1-2 months ago) and reinstalled Windows without caring of most of the drivers, leaving Windows update manager automatically do whatever he wanted I had no crash/freeze till today, when I used Driver Easy to install every driver it found available to install some audio drivers. As I left it do the job, as soon as I reached Blender, already open, it freezed the entire pc again. So, finally, I'm assuming this is mostly a driver issue and there's a state of things that lets Blender and the PC work properly. To solve the issue I formatted my PC again and I wont use Driver Easy anymore even if I spent 40€ for it, I'll make backups wheneve I'm going to install new drivers and keep minimal. Thank you very much for the support. Let's make that 2.8 thing real the 11th July! :D

No matter what I do it happens every time I stop working for a bit, even in a default cube scene. From my perception it could be a sudden change of processor/graphics card use, like going from 5% to 98% in a few ms. I tried to change 3D management settings in the Nvidia settings so that it's managed by Nvidia driver but nothing changed. I'm going to try setting CPU processing performance minimum level to 98% and see if it gets better.
I formatted my PC, but the issue persists. Again, Blender is the only sw causing this. Everything else works just fine.

I downloaded and installed the most recent driver for my GPU after your last message. Meanwhile I tried unchecking GPU in Blender system preferences while the dll you gave to me wasn't in the Blender folder. For the time I could test it seemed to work fine. Then I tried with the updated GPU driver and GPU checked in the prefs. I opened Blender, assigned a material with some microdisplacement to the default cube and just left Blender open while being on Facebook. Suddenly the pc crashed entirely. Without even have to jump back to Blender. I think that for now I'm going to work without using the GPU but it's a sort of shame cause this was the pc with the most powerful GPU I could afford when I bought it. I also reinstalled the official stable 2.79b version of Blender which seems not to cause the problem.
The dll slows Blender down and makes it unstable, but at least I can jump back to Blender after doing other things with no probs and the crashes leave my pc alive so I can say there's an improvement.

I had the same problem even with the daily 2.79 version so I did some research and tried to understand if it was Blender or my system. I uninstalled Nvidia Experience, checked errors in the system using "sfc /scannow" command on the command prompt which found some errors, installed Nvidia drivers directly from their website, reset the battery settings and today I installed a Windows Update. At the moment I'm using the yesterday Blender 2.79 build and it seems to work just fine, so I apologize for the trouble and thank you for the support.

Hello, today I tried with a new project. Yesterday my PC was struggling a lot and I thought it crashed cause of overheating, but today I got the same problem without very much effort or heating.
The file I was working on is very simple as you can see.
Of course I used the daily build.
