Page fault in non pages area

  1. I had this problem a while back and it seemed to resolve itself when I installed SP2.
    I had to reinstall XP again and - hooray - this problem is back :(

    It seems to happen sporadically; selecting a user on the XP login screen, clicking a link in Firefox, opening a Word doc - I can't see a pattern.
    I've run chkdsk, memtest, cleaned my ram contacts as per the guide and no luck.

    Attached is my minidump; any ideas what could be the root of my problem? I installed all xp patches, drivers etc, all software is current (filehippo.com) and my video and audio drivers are correct and current using the sis.com model scanner and download facility.

    I'm really stumped on this and it's annoying the hell out of me.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    When I see the "ntkrnlpa.exe" error, I always think it can be a few things (usually memory though)

    But it can be HardDrive, or PageFile or even Video memory problems
    Actually even CMOS mem settings

    Instead of explaing all this

    Just wait for another few minidimps that hopefully won't occur

    Thanks, I've googled a bit but it seems the only real direct clue comes from the minidumps as you say; I'll await more crashes and post back if/when they happen.
    Thanks for your time and help.

    You may have exceeded the size limit, just try again with one dmp file

    new minidump - bad_pool_header this time

    minidump should be attached.
    I can't see why this is happening - I reinstalled xp, updated everything a week or so ago and it was fine; nothing changed in the last few days yet this happens.

    Any help with the minidump (again) would be greatly appreciated.

    Inside the 1 Minidump:
    NOD32 Antivirus\Drivers\eamon\eamon.sys
    Others talking about here as well

    You know, you could just uninstall Nod32 and use another AV
