Your not writing mini dumps when your computer crashes. Follow the instructions here -> http://www.carrona.org/setmini.html to fix that problem. Then re-enable driver verifier and get some more crashes for me and upload a new report.

Still not enabled.

if you type advanced system settings in the start bar and hit enter and then under startup and recovery hit settings it should look like the screen shot below

This is usually caused by hardware issues. I would like you to run some tests and report back the results.

1. Memtest86 - Run for 7-8 passes - RAM - Test with Memtest86+
2. Prime95 - Run all three tests for 3-4 hours each or until fail - http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...t-prime95.html
3. Hard drive scan usings SeaTools - http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.js...00dd04090aRCRD - Both long and short tests

I don't think it's a hardware issue as I play America's Army almost every night for a 2 or 3 hours with no problems. However, I am starting to run the hardware tests you recommend. The stress test says to let it run for 6 hours which I am doing now. The memory test says to run it overnight. And I haven't even read about the Seagate Tool yet.
My BSOD started almost a year ago. I learned that if I re-boot my PC within a few minutes after an initial power-up, I am good to go. The computer will also be fine even if I re-boot almost immediately after an initial "cold" power-up. Usually I power-up from a "cold" state, read an email or two, run CCleaner and then hit Restart and it's good to go, even for hours of gaming. Now if I were to shut it down for a few hours and try to power up "cold," it would go to BSOD.
So again, I don't think it's hardware.

Isn't there another way to get my log files to you?

Thanks mgorman87
and where did those big red letters that said, "If I helped you ...?"
and how do I reply to that?

Cold boot issues usually have to do with memory from what i've seen in past experiences. Run the tests and let me know the results. It doesn't hurt to test. Also, the red stuff at the bottom had to do with +rep. It's the scales in the top right corner of the post.

Oh ya, stop running CCleaner. It does more harm then good. It also removes the memory dump files. I used to run it all the time, but then I learned on here that it isn't all that good.
