    I've been running Vista for about 3/4 of a year with no issues. I've had only 1 BSOD because of a game a couple of months ago.
    But within this week, my computer would randomly bsod.

    Here is what I discovered:
    First I thought it was a hardware problem.
    -I did a chkdsk, used HD Tune, everything OK
    -Ran memtest for a bit everything is OK

    So then I thought, let me check through the dmp file.
    - The dump said it was caused by some service and related to uTorrent, and then Azureus
    This is because I thought utorrent was the problem, then I tried Azureus and the same problem occurred.

    I eventully began using Bittorrent the official client with no problems.. Until I added a torrent that I had been downloading recently.

    I didn't notice, but when I realized that this torrent had been active every time I got a bsod, I realized... That's it!

    So my many bsod's are caused because of 1 torrent file... Sounds strange, but I have no idea how it would cause it.

    I'm 98% sure it's this torrent.

    Does this sound plausible?

    You could also have a look around in the event viewer that may have some more info relating to the bsod.

    I found the exact cause of the BSOD just now.

    I have been using Wubi to work with Ubuntu, and I had started downloading a torrent into the same folder I use for Windows when using torrents.

    When I'd go back to Windows and resume the download, that's when I get a BSOD after a period of time.

    The reason must be how Wubi virtualizes itself and how data is written to the "host (windows)" folder.

    then again vpc2007 isnt very good when using linux. never loaded properly when i tryed running ubuntu in vpc2007
    better for someone to use something like wmware server link
    dont think it supports vista yet but it works great if your using XP
