I will try a different driver and see if it resolves the problem.
Did it solve your problem?

Antivirus causes that, specifically AVG.

It did not solve my problem John. I tried a different driver. I even when as far as disabling the internal NIC and installed a PCIx Broadcom NIC with the latest drivers. I still have the problem. The PC will work flawlessly for days on end but as soon as I try to move do a large data transfer between hard drives it will BSOD and reboot. If I find a solution I will post it.

Did you try uninstalling your antivirus solution, and not only disabling?

@darthwhit: In addition to what torrentg suggested, note that the OP's machine was apparently rebooting without a BSOD, which made analysis of the symptom more difficult. If your machine is actually producing a discernible "blue screen" error message (white text on a blue background), then it's also presumably generating a minidump which can be analysed for clues.

If uninstalling the AV doesn't resolve the symptom...

Either way, you should consider starting your own thread so that your issue has the best chance of receiving the individual attention it deserves. There's virtually nothing to tie in your symptom to the OP's.

Well I had two crashes when trying too extract 7 GB of files to my desktop, I also have AVG installed.

I then disabled AVG and the files copied with no problem. It may have been coincidence but I have now installed Avast, instead, to see if it makes any difference. Iíll report back with an update over the next few days.

No, it's no coincidence. Like I was trying to say...AVG was causing it.

So to answer a couple of questions. This is a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium. No antivirus has been installed. When the computer restarts there is no visible BSOD.

I have tried a couple of things to try an isolate the problem. Instead of initiating the file transfer from the primary PC I initiated it from a seperate computer over the network. This time I had the same problem but it did give me a BSOD instead of a hard restart.

The next test I did is install my old hard drive that still had Windows 7 RC installed without changing anything on the target hard drive of the data transfer. I was successfully able to transfer 380GB worth of files without any problems whatsoever. This tells me that it is most definitely a software issue and rules out any hardware problems. I will go back to running the target drive as my primary drive and reload Win 7 to see if I can't track it back to a missing or wrong driver.

That is my best guess as of yet.

So I think I have narrowed it to the hard drive. I restarted once and heard some weird noised from the drive. I went back to my old 120GB and everything seems to be fine. I will run spinright when I get a chance. Luckily it has a 5 year warrenty.
