  1. Just as of recently (the past week or so) I have run into some random BSOD's. There is no warning, and I know its do to windows protecting itself. I just need some help to determine how it can be fixed.. I have no idea what and why these files seem to need to dump the system. I am attaching my most recent minidump files. Any help that anyone can give me will be greatly appreciated.

    All four errors are 0x0000004E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
    This indicates that the memory management Page File Number list is corrupted. Can be caused by corrupt physical RAM, or by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists.

    Three listed Windows OS drivers which are too general to be of much help.

    One listed the driver av5flt.sys which belongs to your Panda antivirus.

    First, run memtest on your memory: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic62524.html and get back to us with the results. keep in mind this takes a long time but well worth it. Allow it to run for a minimum of 7 Passes; there are 8 individual tests per Pass.

    Second, after memtest and depending on the results, update your Panda antivirus.
