    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    One of your minidumps crashes at your Zonealarm firewall. This is a known issue on some systems.

    Your other two minidumps crash with a generic error and may well be related to Zonealarm.

    I suggest you uninstall Zonealarm and try a different firewall programme, such as below.

    Kerio or Comodo free firewall programmes.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Hi!

    Thanks for welcome message

    I have zone alaram installed but it is not running at atartup its disabled..

    Also recently i got "generic host for win32 services error" ? whats that
    I installed some patch from winxp web site.. I dont get that error...

    What about nvidia chipest drivers (nforce590) integrated audio drivers, and graphic card drivers ?

    But craches appear when I have utorrent but I am not sure is that the case.. cause I am not sure did I have utorrent on in the first two craches

    So what firewall should I use?

    I heared that Kerio has some cinflict with certain programs ?

    What about windows firewall ?

    Zonealarm may not be running, but it`s driver certainly is, hence the crash at vsdatant.sys.

    I`ve already given you two alternative firewall programmes to try.

    Windows firewall is rubbish and should be avoided.

    Regards Howard :)

    No, do not leave the system without a firewall as that would be security suicide.

    I`ve already told you to uninstall Zonealarm and try another firewall. I even gave you links to 2 other firewall programmes.


    Regards Howard :)

    I don`t know is the my answer.

    More to the point, are you still getting system crashes?

    You could always try kerio.

    Regards Howard :)

    Crashes were rare... still waiting to crash.. no crash so far :D

    But I was for months with disabled kerio firewall and nothing happened about securitiy...

    Why is firewall "must have" I have peerguardian and nod 32m sometimes I scan PC with spy bot

    Ill try kerio... but ill leave now oc without firewall for sime days to see will it crash or not

    Comodo has cpu issue : google reveals lots of such forum posts

    If you want to run without a firewall, that`s upto you. However, don`t come complaining here if your system becomes compromised.

    I`ve already told you it`s a huge security risk.

    Without a firewall running, your system can be hacked into very easily.

    Regards Howard :)
