Hello,

Also you can attach the minidump files.  Can get them analyzed for you.

Cheers,
Mak

You can also run the built-in Vista RAM tester by booting from the Vista installation DVD and choosing the Repair your computer option, then selecting Windows Memory Diagnostic tool from the menu:

Thanks to all for the help. After several reboots the problem went away. I have not been able to get the remote user to send me the minidump file (problem child of the company). I will retain this information in case the problem re-occurs and I can get some cooperation from the user.
