    i've also attached few other minidump files i've found in my computer along with Mini113007 (more recent ones), even though it wasn't mentioned in the error info. The problems may be related. Much thanks.

    hey yippeeyayay

    just try maybe fitting u'r ram into place again .... sometimes it just shifts and then BSODs occur... also if u have more than one chip of RAM, take it out and try running the pc on the other chip... then do the same with the other chip/s... this might work as sometimes not all the sticks of ram stop working at the same time...

    if u can, try running memtest to check for faulty ram

    good luck

    0xC2 errors are typically (but not always) caused by a faulty driver or buggy software.

    4 of your 5 minidumps point to vsdatant.sys which is a driver for ZoneAlarm. You are the second person in as many days who have had the same faulty driver.

    1) See if there are updates or 2) go to the Zone Alarm forums and see how others rectified the issue or 3) uninstall and reinstall and see if that helps.
