    Some maintenance is in order to bring your system 'current'

    1. Delete crud left from old install temps, downloads, and Internet surffing:
    2. Defrag your system to consolidate freespace
    3. Download and install SP2
    4. Use MS Update to ensure all the hotfixes are applied

    SP2 is the preferred benchmark for stability and security.

    Once your at this level, you may need to tweek the Windows Firewall, but
    let's address that when needed.

    disk cleanup

    btw: To start Disk Cleanup, click Start, click Run, and then type cleanmgr.

    These 2 minidumps point to Memory Corruption... Check that memory!

    this post directs you to the official Microsoft Update site for the SP2 update.

    Personally, I am always hesitant to use non-ms updates -- you just don't know
    who changed what!

    What memory?RAM or HDD?How to check it?With Chdisk option?LOL,sorry i must sound really stupid.I actally am learning the ways of electrical engineering for computers.And i have never seen a problem like this.What i forgot to mention was that when i preform all sistem scan(Avira Anti Vir Guard,Ad-Aware,Spybot Search and Destroy,and CC Registry Cleaner, a clean swipe at my cookies and option "Clear private data"(Mozilla),and finally a disk cleanup on all partitions....
    Problem disapears for a day or two...And after a day or two the same happens.What can possibly be the source of ever lastin internet menace?A targeted virus?

    System memory... although I hear people constantly refering to hard drive capacity as memory all the time. This could be caused by a failing/corrupt hard drive I suppose. How many system memory sticks are you running? If more that 1, swap the system memory stick positions
