    OK...empty all the minidump files in the minidump folder so if you get another crash we will look at that one.

    First Minidump was inconclusive

    Second Probably caused by : ecache.sys

    Are you plugging a memory stick in the USB ports

    Try this.....click Start (bottom left)>>All Programs>>Accessories>.right click on Command Prompt and Run as Admin

    At the prompt type sfc /scannow Please note that there is a single space between sfc and /scannow.

    Typing this will start the program, and a box should appear telling you how much longer the process should take.

    Not to worry did it say it found anything...usually ask for Operating System disc.

    it said it found some errors but didn't specify and said for more detail look at the log. It didn't ask for operating disc

    Do you have the Operating Disc...if so put it in the CD driver and run Sfc again.

    I'm running out of ideas here

    Well it seems hard to pin down...your memory and Hard drive seem to check out. Have you ran some scans like the free Malwarebytes.

    Maybe posting your Hijack log will show something

    Please download HijackThis:

    Please go here to download HijackThis.
    • Save the HijackThis.exe file to your desktop.
    • Double-click the HijackThis.exe file on your desktop to launch the program. If you get a security warning asking if you want to run this software because the publisher couldn't be verified click on Run to allow it.
    • Click on the Scan button. The scan will not take long and when it's finished the resulting log will open automatically in Notepad.
    • Save the log file to your desktop. Copy and paste the contents of the log in your post.


    Please do not fix anything with HijackThis unless you are instructed to do so. Most of what appears in the log will be harmless and/or necessary.
