Thanks for the reply.
I keep virus and malware protection up to date and have a regular scanning regime in addition to the usual resident protection, so I'm pretty sure I'm free of viruses and malware.
Interestingly, since I put the MAC and the PC on fixed IP's it seemed to remain stable all day yesterday. However, Son #1 returned home from abroad last night and he has a MAC too. Guess what - three crashes in 10 mins this morning. He was using DHCP for his IP, so I've changed him to a fixed IP also and we shall see how that goes !
I managed to get the error message written down this time if it means anyhting to anyone !!!
The PC also saves the info to a crash dump file, but try as I may I cannot access the file.
"STOP : 0x0000007F (0x0000000000000008, 0x0000000080050031, 0x00000000000000006F8, 0xFFFFF8002A9505F"
