What are cores and what is the objective of this procedure? Do I want more cores so I don't run out?

I had another reboot, so now I've removed Adobe updater from the startup list. Over 12 hours now without a reboot. Will continue to monitor the situation.

Hiyya Rusty generally speaking you have to be quite wary of Adobe stuff as it is targeted by a lot of "nice people" and I am constantly or rather my Kaspersky is - picking up vulnerabilities with Adobe stuff as it did with Java which I have removed for over two months now without any problems.

If I didn't mention it before if you want a bit more speed and performance use this tutorial Optimize Windows 7[2]=Performance Maintenance

But only after things settle down mate.

I have shut off quite a few applications from starting automatically.

But my spontaneous reboots and shutdowns without BSOD have returned. I've had four in the last 3 hours.

Very confused now. Starting over... Will run memtest86 again.

If you still suspect 3rd party software dont forget you can still disable stuff to try to sort the situation as before, sometimes you can disable it then when you manually run it will re-enter into startup and sometimes appear twice (one unselected and new one selected)
A few pointers for a clean boot if you need to try it again

Thanks. I will probably try that. Currently, I'm trying to figure out how to run Windows debugging tools (WinDbg) so I can get specific information about what is causing the crashes.

Thats quite a task your undertaking have a look at this for some setup info BSOD Analysis - Getting Started will help you with symbol path and file association but theres a whole lot more to it than you may realise theres an awful lot of commands you need to know to investigate the dump file properly
Post any dump you want analysed and we can give you the output if you prefer

Done for the day

Thanks again, Pauly. I'll probably pick this up again in the morning. Currently I'm out of Cheetos and Hershey bars

I've yet to get the crash dump configured to produce a dump. Maybe tomorrow...

Thank you. I'm following your advice.

Since my last post, have installed 4 recommended important Windows updates and experienced no crashes.

Spontaneous BSOD
I had been having this problem a few months back, but it was fixed by defragmenting the hard drive.
