I'm using all peripherals on the motherboard (audio, etc) except for the NIC. I suspected that might be the problem, so I disabled it and installed a dLink GB NIC. Same problem though. All drivers
are from Windows Update. I didn't have to manually load anything other than the dLink driver
for tyhe NIC - just got automatically detected and installed when I loaded the machine.
I attached the dump files. Greatly appreciated if someone can give me a clue here what might be going on.
While we are waiting for someone with a true debugger I took a quick look at this one. It seems like iexplore.exe caused win 7 to puke and die. Have you been having trouble with explorer hanging, or being busy?

This problem occurs if one or more of the processors in the computer:
•Require a microcode update that is not applied by the computer's basic input/output system (BIOS).
•Are damaged or defective.
•Are operating outside their specified ranges for temperature, power, or other conditions.
Let us know. Have you had more than 1 BSOD?
