Hi there,

I have had a few problems with my custom built computer. I believed at first that I had malware and virus issues, however a nice technician on the virus forums said there was no problem.

I am receiving the dreaded Blue Screen of Death fairly frequently, I am not playing any games, just browsing the internet when it happens.

Secondly, my browsers (both Mozilla 3.6.8 and IE 8) are both crashing very frequently - Mozilla comes up with a report message saying it has crashed and asks me whether to send or not to send the report, whereas IE reloads the tabs frequently, but to a point the page cannot be reloaded and has to be closed down.

As well as this, a lot of my executable files are crashing - I am getting error messages from things like java, flash, avg, my network card, windows messenger etc saying that they have crashed.

This problem is happening very frequently, I cannot seem to go half an hour without browsing with no problem.

If anyone could help it would be VERY MUCH appreciated!

Thanks.

You need to post some hardware details about your custom built computer.
Something is unstable and it could well be the memory modules.

In addition, when you see a BSoD click details, it will generally state which executable caused the problem.

I would be tempted to look for a copy of memtest and run some memory diagnostics.

Great advice regarding memtest. Well worth looking into but feel free to post some crash dumps as it may be a dodgy driver too.

Hi there, sorry for the long reply.

Which details do you need to know about and how do I find them?

Thanks again.

BUMP

Prior to this thread I posted my symptoms in the virus/spyware forum, after tests etc we established I did not have a virus and was told to post this error message in the Windows XP support forum.

Here is the error message:


22/07/2010 23:44:09, error: Cdrom [11] - The driver detected a controller error on \Device\CdRom1.
20/07/2010 00:37:39, error: Cdrom [11] - The driver detected a controller error on \Device\CdRom0.
