Will do, thanks. I've just updated Adobe Flash, Shockwave, Air, Java and my video drivers to the latest versions as a matter of routine. Who knows maybe they'll work! Fingers crossed. If you don't hear from me again, thanks for all your help

They didn't work, just got a crash again whilst using IE9 going back to a Google search. All dump files attached again (including latest). Any other suggestions please? Thanks

As usual, the crash dump provides no information. You do two more checks.

Scan the system for possible virus infection.
Test your RAM modules for possible errors.

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

I think you've found the problem - see attached screen pic! It doesn't mean much to me though. How do I make sense of the errors?

It indicates that the RAM is corrupted. Now the question is which stick is corrupt.

Follow Part 3: If You Have Errors: of the guide How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+, it will help you to identify the corrupted RAM module. Then change/replace it.

Otherwise you may get a complete new RAM kit.

Let us know the results with the replacement RAM.

It's taken months but finally think I've found the dodgy RAM stick. No blue screens for a couple of weeks so fingers crossed! Thank you so much for your help
