The three newest crashes were caused by a memory exception with Iexporer running. Though probably not the cause I would do the following

1-ASACPI.SYS a major cause of BSOD's in the earlier revs (yours 2004)

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it. (ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download Tools)
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

2- Run a system file check

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Many thanks for your quick reply.
I have applied the latest ASACPI.sys file as my one was dated 12/08/2004.
I ran a system file check about a week ago and it found no errors.

I have managed to replace some of the drivers that you mentioned but the ones listed below I can not find. Can you help?

V0230Vfx.sys
V0230VID.sys
jswpslwf.sys
nvlddmkm.sys
dump_nvstor.sys

Hopefully the ASACPI.SYS was the problem and I will not get any more bsod's but only time will tell. I will post back in a few days or so to let you know.

Many thanks

Don't worry about those you couldn't update; if they are at fault, Driver Verifier should show it.

If the BSODs persist, run driver verifier: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Hi

I ran driver verifier and it asked me to restart, on restart the computer blue screened and would not start. I had to use system repair/ restore to an earlier time to get back into my computer. I have rechecked verifier and this is now back to it's original settings. I have tried this twice and the bsod happened both times.
I have attached the minidump for you to see

Thanks

Thanks,
Is superantispyware a known problem with windows 7 or could it be just a bad install.
Is it worth re-installing it at a later date?

Cheers

Unknown at this point; I'd just remove it completely for now, and if you want it back after the BSODs have stopped, go ahead.
