If they are present on your system, rename them in safe mode to see if it resolves the issue. Should the problem persist, generate a complete memory dump from the point the issue occurs as per the instructions here. To enable manual generation of memory dumps, right-click this link, save the file on the disk and run it (with administrator privileges). Once you have generated a memory dump, drop me a PM or contact Customer care for further instructions.
