    Your dump points to a windows system file, i.e. consent.exe is a part of Windows Vista. Relate to: Security, System Management, default location for this file is:

    Consent.exe presents consent/ password dialog on secure desktop.

    However, before going any further, please attach all the minidumps you have with your next post after zipping them in a single file. Regards

    I've got the computer torn apart right now, waiting for new memory. If that doesn't do it. I will post the rest of the mini dumps. REALLY appreciate your time looking at the minidump and telling me about it. Thanks a million.

    Archean, I just put in my new memory and no luck still blue screening. I've attached the latest MiniDumps. REALLY appreciate your help as this computer has only been used a few times (basically new).

    I got to thinking about your comment on the consent.exe file so I tried to replace it but it wouldn't let me because access denied even though I used administration rights, however I got to thinking the Panda Antivirus software I had was probably utilizing that consent.exe file so I uninstalled it and it's been running for about 30 minutes now and no blue screen which is quite good, normally 5 minutes in and blue screen. I think your help paid off. MUCHO GRACIAS

    That is reassuring enough; sorry for not replying earlier, as I screwed up my PC :D

    Anyway, I think I was able to find the actual issue with it, and it seemed to run alright for few minutes before I turned it off last night.

    Couple of your new dumps also pointed to consent.exe; so its good thing you've done. Please keep me posted if you need any further assistance, Regards.
