  1. Hi

    My Vista machine just started crashing BSOD's overnight when im not around, latest 4 minidumps attached.

    I looked at the MS site for diagnosing the minidumps, but looked a bit complicated!

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Dave

    How long have you had Panda AV installed? It's known to cause the memory corruption you're getting.

    Since NOV 08 when i bought the dell.

    Been having a BSOD every 2-3 weeks, just recently it seems to be getting worse.

    Would i be better of with Kaspersky or MCfee ?

    Yeah, switch to one of the free AVs. This will let you see if Panda is the problem. Post any new minidumps if it continues to crash.

    Thanks

    BSOD again last night....

    I have now uninstalled Panda Global protection 2009 and installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 trial version

    Next few days should see if the problem goes away, fingers crossed!
