Make very sure you have this hotfix installed:
Hibernation does not work or memory dump file is not created after you install Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1
The report does mention you have no antivirus product, and Maguscreed is correct that stflt.sys is considered malware (Spyware Terminator, I believe).

Thanks for responding! Ok Maguscreed I will do what you suggest. Cluberti, I have Spyware Terminator installed, you saying I shouldn't use it? I use Avast for antivirus. I don't know what virtualization is Maguscreed. Can you explain?

I am unfamiliar with spyware terminator.
It could very well be causing the problems for all I know.

My above instructions stand either way. Let me know what the result of that is.

Thanks, I removed it and followed instructions from you and cluberti and it's still happening. Any other suggestions? Should I attach a new zip file?

So far today it hasn't crashed so what I did seemed to work. I am going to give it a few more days and if all is well I will mark resolved.

Thanks for all your help!
