Hi,
I have a computer with Windows XP installed. After a couple of minutes of browsing the internet, the system crashes with the much despised Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD). I havent been able to see, what error shows up in there, as it disappears quickly for the machine to reboot again. The crash occurs only when connected to the internet.
I checked for the Ethernet adapter installed on the machine, which is : RealTek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet NIC.
I downloaded a fresh driver for the same, and installed the ethernet drivers on the machine again. But got the same BSOD, after say 4 mins of browsing the internet.
I have attached the dmp file, found in C:/Windows/Minidump , for the crash that occured.
Please advice, what is causing the crashes.

I'm afraid the dumprep is scrambled for me - that could just be my WinZip playing up, of course. Which browser were you using and is it up to date? Was a pop-up blocker in place at the time?

To work around the possibility of a flawed dumprep, can you please go into Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Event Viewer and look for clues in the Applications and System logs for the relevant time when this happened?
