    One minidump usually isn't enough,but I've seen the same problem recently and it was fixed by removing the program.The culprit is vsdatant.sys,which is a Zonealarm file.

    ah I see thanks for the help.

    i got some other dump too but they all have same properties just different dates.

    I think I will uninstall The zone alarm and install newer version. If the .sys file is still there after the uninstall should I remove it manually?

    Hi,

    Your version of ZA (Tue Nov 15 14:37:24 2005) causes blue screen. Uninstall ZA will fix the problem. Refer the following case.

    Your version of nVidia Display card driver (Sat Dec 10 19:45:16 2005)
    is also unstable. Fallback nVidia Display card driver to lower level.
