    I see antivirus trouble, and USB driver issues too. Are you using AVG along with any other antivirus software?

    I'm using only AVG.

    Edit
    I removed old 256 MB RAM and test if XP still is getting BSOD. I know that those two RAM's works. Thanks you guys!

    Since this is an old PC, is there a PCI modem installed?

    PIII @ 1 GHz coppermine
    512 MB / 2 slots
    Asus CUV4X-E motherboard
    NVidia GeForce FX 5600
    Creative Audio PCI ES1371 (???)
    3Com EtherLink XL 10/100 PCI

    Disk Drives
    Seagate ST380011A
    Seagate ST3802110A
    Western Digital WD800BB

    Now its been over 6 hours since last reboot. Everythinks seems fine. Probably the one 256 MB memory chip was faulty. I removed it and now the PC is stable.

    Thanks Sigmund.F,

    I just wanted to make sure that some "old" piece of hardware besides the memory wasn't causing trouble. The old Intel CPU/chipsets seem to like XP much better than the old AMD boards.

    Good luck
