I was getting bsod with trend micro firewall. Changed to trial version of ZA v
7.0.408.000 and know it reboots while playing games. Dell crash analysis says vsdatant.sys. I am running wxp media center sp2 3 gigs of ram and pentium d 2.8. I have 15 day trial version of za. Any help appreciated.


check my sticky in the "windows OS" forum. i have a guide posted that will help you troubleshoot stop errors. perhaps it'll help you find the exact root of the problem and pose a solution.

Your system evidently doesn't like your choice of firewalls...

TM_CFW.sys flagged in a minidump is part of Trend Micro

vsdatant.sys is part of Zone Alarm...

Remove both products, run a good registry cleaner, make sure all the Microsoft Updates are current, and reinstall your choice once more. It is also possible that your system is infected with spyware, viruses or other malware

zonealarm is notorious for causing incompatibility issues. While it is essentially a very good firewall, it is often TOO good. It will stop legitimate traffic often resulting in crashes. I suggest to remove either ZA or the offending programs.
