Create and post a mini dump file as follows;


For Windows 7:
  1. Go to the Control Panel, choose 'System And Security', and then click 'System', and then click the 'Advanced System Settings' link.
  2. In the opened window, click the 'Advanced' tab and then inside the 'Startup And Recovery' frame, click the 'Settings' button.
  3. In the opened 'Startup And Recovery' window, there is 'Write Debugging Information' section. You should set the combo-box in this section to 'Small memory dump', and then click 'ok' to confirm the change.
The file will be stored in; C:\WINDOWS\Minidump, unless the path was modified in the system failure settings of Windows.

Post back the results.
