Need help analyzing minidump

  1. My computer spontaneous reboots quite often (XP), and has so for quite a while, through severeal clean installs and almost every piece of hardware has been replaced. It started doing this maybe 2 years ago, once or twice - now it does this maybe 2-5 times a day. As topic says, I need help analyzing the minidumps. What can been seen in event viewer as last event before minidump, seems to be completely random.

    All 6 minidumps point to one thing: 0x50 Stop Error due to the driver windev-61cd-79ac.sys Trying to find out anything was about impossible when I Googled this except when I shortened it to 79ac.sys and the only thing I found was in this link -

    She had the same restarting issue as you. Probably page 3 contains more of what you are looking for but starting from the beginning wouldn't hurt at all.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help. Most likely someone with more experience than me can read deeper and advise better.

    Windev-61cd-79ac.sys is an infection. Windev is the only bit that stays the same, the rest is random numbers and letters.

    You can find the same problem HERE, then go HERE.
