BSOD Process or Thread Crucial to Sytem

I cannot figure out what is causing random BSOD on a computer.  It starts to run fine, but after a while it begins to crash every few minutes.  The BSOD does not give a specific place to look, instead it says "a process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly".  Then it gives a 0X00000F4 (0X00000003 0X8A0F92C8 0X8A0F943C 0X805D297E)

I have tried running a check on this system and everything came back good.  Any suggestions on what to try next.

Check for viruses.
Also check the ram (http://www.memtest.org/), with one module at the time

It is not giving me enough time now to do anything.  It lasts for about 2 minutes before it freezes now.  

Yesterday I stopped all of the non-microsoft processes and it seemed to help (it only did it once).  I started all the processes again and it continues to do it.

Should I try doing it in safe mode?

Try a virus scan with a rescue disk. That way you don' tneed to boot into WIndows. And the memtest cd is also a bootcd, so you don't need windows to be running

I can try the Memtest, because I put that on  CD.  I don't think I have a virus scan a rescue disk.  Though I can try our End Point Disk.

I have Ultimate Boot Disk.  You think that will help?

I ran a CHKDSK off of Windows Console.  I was running that when I started this thread.  It said it found one error and fixed that.  Now I can run a virus scan whick I am doing right now.  As for the memory test.  I am not sure how to use it once I have downloaded it.  Can I run it from Windows?

You need to burn the iso file on a cd, then put the cd in, reboot, make sure the cd is set as first boot device and just let it run.

Thanks.

So far, running the Virus scan has worked.  It found 19 objects.  It removed them and since then it has not gone to the BSOD.  I will continue to monitor and if it doesn't happen again today, I will close this accepting the first response of running a virus scan.

I'll hope this solved your problem. I don't like BSOD's either. But I don't think anyone likes it ;)

Scanning for a virus helped find 3 problems that fixed the BSOD problem.
