  1. Hello,

    I've been having a bit of trouble with my Dell Inspiron 1420 recently. Since 2 days, i am getting a blue screen when i try to shut down the computer. It then restarts automatically. I manage to restart in safemode and then shutdown in safe mode. However when i start it again normally, i keep having the same problem and cannot shut down the computer properly. I have not installed any new hardware or software lately. I have run antivirus and registry cleaner. It all didnt help.
    HERe is the message i retrieved the " Problem Report and Solution" from Windows:

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP. I AM REALLY DESEPERATE, AS I AM REALLY NOVICE IN THIS.

    Can you please post your minidumps for analysis?

    You can find those by going to C:\Windows\minidump (you may need an administrative account to open this folder).

    I will get back to you shortly (by editing this same post about the minidump analysis); as I am at work so I need to find some space/time to do this. So far, I can say that one of BSOD's point to certain system components redirecting file operations from protected locations to locations in the user’s path.

    However, during this time I would advise that you may consider upgrading your Vista to SP2.
