BSOD nearly give me a heart attk!

  1. Greeting Guru's of TS!

    First time in years, I experienced an unexpected BSOD. It happen right after I click on a Games Review site on the Halo 3 leak topic. Now I'm afraid to go back there again, i wonder if that site was the caused of my system crash?

    Is there any way to pin point the source of the culprit?

    anyway, heres my minidump

    system recovery error log?

    thanks in advance : )

    PS. Attachment won't work, it keep saying error uploading, so I went and use save.file.com. Please download from there xD

    Bugcheck 7f is usually a hardware error. You'll need to post a few more minidumps if they happen. You can try updating the video card drivers. Update Zonealarm as well.

    BugCheck 7F, {0, 0, 0, 0}
    Probably caused by : ativvaxx.dll ( ativvaxx+5c833 )

    Condor: Here is an analysis of your minidmp. It appears to be your video card as the culprit.

    This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind
    that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that
    is always instant death (double fault). The first number in the
    bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc)
    Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these
    traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
    If kv shows a taskGate
    use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
    Else if kv shows a trapframe
    use .trap on that value
    .trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
    (on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
    kb will then show the corrected stack.
    Arg2: 00000000
    Arg3: 00000000
    Arg4: 00000000
