Windows 7: Randon BSOD's, couple of problems

Randon BSOD's, couple of problems

For the past several weeks I've been getting BSOD's. At first I thought they might be due to overheating since they always happened late in a session. Now lately I've gotten them while booting up. Then I have a stable period like now. (The machine is nearly 4 years old and had never been opened or cleaned since I built it.)

I'm trying to follow your directions on creating and then uploading dump files. First problem is that I do not seem to have a file "C:\Windows\memdmp.*" or anything similar. I'm running Win 7 64 bit on a 4 year old Intel Dual Core machine. Second problem is that I've downloaded the SF Diagnostic Tool program but cannot run it because I don't have "permission". As far as I've known I'm always logged on as Admin but I keep getting this message off and on. So I cannot run the diagnostic program until I can figure out how to convince the program I'm the Admin. Frustrating combo of issues just getting started

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Despite of being the admin user, you need to right click on some programs and then choose "Run as administrator" option in the context menu.

Many thanks ARC, I've done as you suggested and will wait now for the next BSOD.
