  1. My system info seems to be in the included .dmp file, tho I can't seem to read the rest of the file. If someone can tell me what is wrong, that would be awesome.

    Your error code is 0xC2 and these are caused by either faulty drivers or buggy software.

    What security software do you have installed and running? This includes antivirus, firewall, and anitspyware/antimalware software.

    I use AVG 8, Zone Alarm, and Spybot Search & Destroy. I've only come across this problem with a single game, that causes the error to be generated. Several people that I've talked to, that play this game, have told me that it is usually a driver that causes the error, but they aren't sure which one it is.

    The issue is with the Zone Alarm driver vsdatant.sys. We see this driver a lot here at TechSpot. Update ZA to see if that rectifies the issue.
