    All three minidumps point to the same thing: sf.sys which is a DSP Service Driver for Sonic Focus and from what I have been able to read is a product to improve your audiophile experience. I suggest 1) going to their forums (if they have them) or contact their tech support and ask them what to do which will be most likely 2) downloading the newest driver.

    Also, your first dump pointed to Maxthon.exe which is an executable for the Maxthon Web Browser. I have never heard of this and it might very well be you are infected with malware. I strongly suggest you do a full system scan. What security software do you run?

    i am using AVG free edition.
    i am using maxthon for years, it's a some kind of i.e patched browser.
    sf.sys is related with my sound card driver SoundMax,which is on board sound card on my Intel mainboard. I updated my soundcard driver lately, I think my problem will be resolved if i downgrade the sound card driver.
    thx for your quick response and your time.
