If a program accesses Windows in an unapproved way, it may cause Windows to crash. If the file that crashed is a Windows system file that will show as the cause, even though it wasn't actually the system file that was at fault.
When troubleshooting STOP errors like this, it's important to see the entire dump file to see if there's any other "pointers" to what's causing this. IME it's a better than 90% chance that this STOP error is caused by something else (but there's a less than 10% chance that it's the Windows file).
Trouble is, the fixes for Windows system files are a real PITA - and when you're done, it may not even fix the issue. For example, here's a link to a description of the STOP 0x8e error (Bug Check and STOP errors are very similar and the descriptions are interchangeable): http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x8e
In this case you can see that it's an incompatibility issue. Presuming that you haven't just added some new hardware/software that could be causing this - it then means that there's an issue with either failing hardware (unlikely IMO), bad/corrupt drivers (most likely IMO), or a need for BIOS upgrade (less likely than either of the other 2).
