Can some one send me the link on where the program is for debugging the minidump data, and a little guide on how to read 'em? I can't find it any where.

Just FYI, we've posted a more in-depth set of instructions in the Windows Mini-Guides forum: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/176011/how-to-receive-help-diagnosing-blue-screens-and-windows-crashes/

There's a lot of details involved with interpreting them (and a lot of guesswork for me). Most debugging info is written for programmers and there just isn't that much available for those of us who don't do programming (or don't want to spend $2,000 on a seminar). The most helpful things for me were actually reading the dump files and using the help files to explain what I was reading. Also, http://aumha.org/a/stop.htm is an excellent resource as the error messages are there in abbreviated form and are readily accessible.

Beyond that, there's a lot of help out there with Google searches - both for the error messages and the files that are mentioned in the dump report.

Usasma, I hadn't realized that you had finished the tutorial, it will be my first suggestion in the future! :thumbsup:

Nice job by the way.

Thanks, but a lot of the credit goes to Grinler.
It was his idea, and he refined my rough draft into something readable.
