    nasty.
    Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area means you have a buffer overflow which has corrupted memory.

    1) disable all browser add-ons
    2) update your browser(s) to the latest level
    3) update your system to the latest SP level
    4) update all your device drivers to the latest version

    Yea, I know that's a lot - - but you have bad code somewhere and this is the path
    to remove it. This may or may not be an infection, so start with the above first.
