This has been happening for quite a while now but sometimes it plays nicely and does allow me to get some work done. However it's happening with alarming frequency now and it's causing massive inconvenience.


I really need to do something right away as I'm only managing to type this in Safe Mode.


I've seen various threads in different places in the past about Event Viewer and System Dump Files etc, but I don't understand any of it, let alone what to do about it.


I really want to avoid having to re-install Windows as I have too many applications and settings etc and restoring everything would be a major chore, plus I'd never know what the problem was.


In case it's useful, here's an event log file that covers the last 2 crashes (I think):




Obviously I'll answer any questions or provide any information ASAP.


Cheers in advance!
