I now suspect it might have something to do with my G25. Whenever it's not plugged in I don't have the freeze. It's now happening randomly. Time to replace my wheel?
On post #1 you wrote it only happened with the 65 mod?
Now it happens only when the wheel is plugged in?
Do other (race) games also crash when the wheel is plugged in or is it only with GPL?
If only GPL crashes then it could be more of a software problem that is colliding with something else running on the system or blocking it (maybe a Windows service, or Anti-Virus, ....)
Have you tried using another USB-Port to plug in the wheel?
Have you tried to update your Logitech G25 software?
Does the Logithech G25 software run fine? Does it show any error? Is there any possibility for trouble shooting within the software?

I can confirm HIPS mechanism from various anti-virus/firewall software can block some games from switching to fullscreen, which usually causes black screen and even lock system up, the solution is to white list all GPL exe file. (one other program that known to cause black screen is Comodo firewall, it has exact same HIPS thing).
I can also confirm that.
GEM+ can also be detected as malware by some anti-virus software.
My Kaspersky software for example does. After I add the GEM.exe to exceptions (white list) in the Kaspersky settings it is fine again.
Note to myself: Adding the anti-virus issue to my GPL installation guide.
