BSOD on vista home premium!

  1. i don't know when this started exactly, but lately whenever i restart my laptop for whatever reason, it would boot up, go into the logon screen, then when i logon, it would crash into a BSOD, restart, and then run perfectly fine the second time. event log reads:

    - <Event xmlns="">
    - <System>
    <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-WER-SystemErrorReporting" Guid="{ABCE23E7-DE45-4366-8631-84FA6C525952}" EventSourceName="BugCheck" />
    <EventID Qualifiers="16384">1001</EventID>
    <TimeCreated SystemTime="2007-07-09T02:03:19.000Z" />
    <Correlation />
    <Execution ProcessID="0" ThreadID="0" />
    <Security />
    - <EventData>
    <Data Name="param1">0x00000050 (0x8309d000, 0x00000000, 0x862710a6, 0x00000000)</Data>
    <Data Name="param2">C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP</Data>

    i'm a complete noob at this. anybody know what might be wrong??

    Please attach your minidumps so we can take a closer look at what is going on.

    How to find minidumps in XP with ">" meaning to click on; I don't know if it has changed in Vista:

    My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Search for Minidump Folder > the files inside this folder are what we need (not the folder itself). Attach these files to your next reply like you would a Word document to an email.

    here's the stuff i got from the minidump folder, as well as the additional info that vista said would "help describe the problem". i archived all the files and put them up on rapidshare. any help would be very much appreciated.


    much obliged!=)

    This is a known problem with Folder Lock. The best solution is to uninstall Folder Lock.

    BugCheck 50, {83095000, 0, 862710a6, 0}
    Probably caused by : windrvNT.sys ( windrvNT+40a6 ) <-- Folder Lock file.

    new software (the company that made folder lock) support told me to try installing folder lock on a different directory instead of just the usual C:/program files/folder lock. do you think this'll actually help?
