    I have gotten some BSOD crashes after recently 'cleaning up' my other system yesterday. Attached are the zipped up minidump files. The only significant thing I recall doing yesterday to the system was cleaning the registry files in CCleaner. I think it may have deleted some said unused/duplicate files, so could this be causing my problem? I would greatly appreciate any help!

    Howdy,

    Did you have any BSODs before using the registry cleaner?

    All those minidumps say: Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe

    I believe you have a chance to save the registry before Ccleaner cleans ..did you save a registry backup before cleaning?

    Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe is a kind of generic error...can be caused by many things..sometimes memory ..Hard drive etc,....but as you only getting the bsod after a registry clean the it most likely to do with that. Ccleaner is a good cleaner for other things but using any Registry cleaner is not needed and as you have found out dangerous.

    See if you have a Restore Point to beforea date before you cleaned the Registry

    Go Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore

    Click on Choose a different Restore Point
