    Sounds like you'd better head to Security and the Web forum, read (some of) the sticky threads there.

    In plain English, having a "cache" directory in a place like that sounds like someone's using your computer to store some files you don't want.

    The crash may be caused by faulty ram or device driver error. The system event log and the minidump has the most useful diagnostic information.
    When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 or 1003 and a minidump to the folder \windows\minidump.
    Check system event 1001 and 1003 and it has the content of the blue screen.

    Event ID: 1001
    Source: Save Dump
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.The bugcheck was : 0xc000000a (0xe1270188, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804032100).
    Microsoft Windows..... A dump was saved in: .......

    Event Source: System Error
    Event Category: (102)
    Event ID: 1003
    Error code 1000007f, parameter1 0000000d, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000

    Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001/1003. Copy the content and paste it back here

    Zip 5 to 6 minidumps to a zip file and attach it here. Techspot has an upper limit of 100K per attachment. I will study the dump and find out the culprit.
