I will be surfing the net when all of a sudden the screen goes blue with some kind of error message and then it says "beginning physical memory dump" and starts counting off seconds. This is where I panic and shut it down.

It said something about newly installed hardware or software, but I have not installed anything recently.

I scanned with spybot, adaware,avast, ewido, defender, defragged it, ran it through registry booster.
I have found nothing wrong.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Mods I believe this post is in the wrong forum, rather than repost it could someone move it for me?

Thank you and I apologize for the error.

If it happens again write down the exact error message and post it back here. That will make it a lot easier to diagnose.

Please do this :

Try disabling the automatically restart on system failure feature. Then you are able to read what messages appear on the blue screen and post that back here for some one to lol at.


Click Start Button

On the Start Menu click Control Panel

When the Control Panel window opens click on the System icon

The system properties window opens

Click the Advanced tab

In the Advanced tab window locate the Start and Recovery section and press the Settings button

When the settings window opens look for the System failure section

Remove the check mark from the Automatically Restart option

Click OK to Exit

Posatback, as complete as possible, what you find there.

The problem seems to have been resolved by uninstalling Kerio Personal Firewall and reinstalling Zonealarm, I will report bak if it reoccurs.

Thank you for all the tips and advice.
