Windows 7: BSOD after Windows Update this week; related?

BSOD after Windows Update this week; related?

Hey there, I haven't seen a BSOD since the 90s! Now it has happened 4 times since Friday. Mostly when I am away from computer.

I did do the Windows update for this week. I do them pretty regularly. I have Win 7 Home Premium 64bit; SP1.

I have followed the instructions to attach the "dump." (hopefully correctly)

My Computer Savvy on scale of 1-10, I am maybe a 4. :-)

Any help would be much appreciated,

Thanks, KJ.

It may be related. The crash dump is not very precise about it.

If it is a stray BSOD, you may overlook it. But if it continue to occur, better you uninstall the suspect update.

Also, as a caution, Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Let us know the results.
