    Since you can get into safe mode look in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump and if there are any files in there upload 3-4 of the most recent minidump files and we will be more than happy to look them over for you and try to resolve this issue.

    Also, System specs would help out a lot.

    Operating system
    Computer make/model
    Video card, if not intergrated
    Ammount/Brand of RAM

    Probably caused by : snpstd3.sys

    snpstd3.sys is the camera driver for CliqueCam.

    Possible solution:

    Since you can boot up in safe mode. Uninstall the driver from the add/remove programs list for this device. Then download the latest version of the driver from the manufacturers website.
