BSOD - new Dell PC - random BSOD
x64, I think
- the original installed OS on the system?
- an OEM
- What is the age of system (hardware)? less than 1 month
- have not reinstalled
Dell, WIN 7 Home
Can't read the dump files and when the machine blue screens, the message doesn't stay up long enough for me to capture the exact error. Lots of 0000000x
Have run anti-spyware, anti-malware and am running Zone alarm firewall, anti-virus, etc.
BSOD started about 5 days ago....
Unsure what to do, any help appreciated. Wondered if some windows updates started the issue or did un-installing McAfee start this mess.
Attached zip as instructions say to do.
Regards - heidi

Hello and Welcome !
First looking at the post itself i got an idea why is going on. Zone Alarm is notorious for BSOD. Please uninstall it and use the Cleanup Tool and remove the left over files. Then if you had installed McAfee before run the Removal Tool and clean the left over files. Then install Microsoft Security Essentials.
Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP (7f) 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 Else .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) Endif kb will then show the corrected stack.
