I'look at the dump in the morning, meanwhile, could you test in Safe Mode? Is it stable then?

I left the PC running Prime 95 in safe mode and surprisingly the system is stable.
The test usually needed less then 30 seconds to crash the PC in safe mode ran for hours.

That could mean that some non-standard drivers are causing it. As that is the dif between Safe Mode and Normal.

Hard to tell because your upload does not include a dump.

You also have some problems with Windows Update
Please go to your Maintenance Center and check the Windows Update status. Make sure you are up to date, do them one by one manually if needed.
For help or reset see: Windows Update - Reset
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header
Select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

and try:
Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.

Using driver sweeper removed the ati radeon driver.
Re-install the latest one - just the display driver not the hole ati catalyst suite and my system is stable and working so far with no crashes.

Will mark this treat as solved in one week if all is good!!!
