    Ive had some bsods over the last few days on windows 7 64 bit.Id like to view the dump files that windows have created and see what may be conflicting .However to view them i need windbg and for windows 7 64 bit it seems to be a whopping 619 meg.

    Is there any other viewer i can use to check the dump files that would be considerably smaller??

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Conclusion
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is really responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

    Hi..
    No its a dell laptop (previosly had vista on),though it has been completley formatted and windows 7 installed.3gig of ram and dual core cpu.The bsods seem to be random..no logic to them that i can see.Its been running fine for months.Just started happeneing a few days ago.I havent put any thing new on it.In fact i used shadow protect to restore an image from afew weeks ago just in case ,but the bsods still seem to happen.Windows is uptodate with patches etc,as is my applications.I thought it might be avast 5 causing it ,although i had avast 5 beta for a while and didnt have any problems.I uninstalled avast ,and still had a bsod after so its not that.Only windows firewall running ,so theres no hips firewall that may be causing it.Looking at the dump im wondering whether its something that starts a service.The only apps that do that ,are mst defrag which ive had for a while with no problem ,shadow protect ,which ive never had a problem with ,usb safely remove ,and shadow defender,which i havent used in shadow mode for months.

    Thanks for the link.Ill check that out.I havent had a blue screen since yesterday when i disabled mst defrag service,so im also checking that out.My graphics driver was update in december ,so theres nothing new that should have altered other than a conflict with another driver.Ive performed chkdisk and file checker and everything seems to be ok.
