I am also experiencing this issue with the exact same info as Opi8 posted at the bottom of the previous page. COM Surrogate has stopped working, DllHost.exe, gdiplus.dll.

It happens every time I double-click an image (to open it in Windows Photo Viewer), close it, and double-click another image.

I have the latest video drivers and don't have Nero, Kaspersky, etc. that other people have suggested conflicts. I have Adobe CS5 (not CS3) which is compatible with 7 64-bit.

If you are experiencing the same issue you have BSOD's that create DMP files. can you upload them, or are they not being created?

If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Start your own thread in the appropriate section of the forum and attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.
