Blue Screen - Pretty sure it my Graphics Card HD 5570

I have added my dump file below.  I am sorry but I have no idea how to read it.

I keep getting a blue screen.  When I use my graphics card.

I have done the memtest with 15 passes and got Zero errors thus I am not sure that it is a RAM problem.  My board also has a HDMI connection and changing over to it seems to fix the problem.  At least I have not yet got a blue screen from it.

I have a feeling that my case power is the problem - but am not sure.  I have also started dxdiag and do not get any errors.

ATI drivers are fully updated.  Windows is also fully updated.

Set Up
Windows 7 x64
Sapphire HD5570
Intel DH57jg
Antec ISK310-150

Any thoughts or things that I can do?

The blue screen can happen at any time, even with just the desktop showing - it will get a blue screen and restart.

Uninstall Zone alarm with the removal tool and you will no longer get the BSOD:

Ok thanks but the result does not really help me - does it tell you something

i assume you have read this from the dmp file.  I will gladly do it but could you give me a link or something which backs up your idea?  Or is this a general problem with firewalls, zonealarm.   Windows without a firewall & virus program is like walking naked down the main street.
You are getting a 7f stack overflow exception.  Both Norton and Zone Alarm have this problem.  See the following link:

This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it's a trap of a kind
that the kernel isn't allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that
is always instant death (double fault).  The first number in the
bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc)
Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these
traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
If kv shows a taskGate
        use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
Else if kv shows a trapframe
        use .trap on that value
        .trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
        (on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
kb will then show the corrected stack.
Arg1: 0000000000000008, EXCEPTION_DOUBLE_FAULT
Arg2: 0000000080050033
Arg3: 00000000000006f8
Arg4: fffff80001cd70df

ok - uninstalled zonealarm and can only just see now how it goes.  Thank you.  I can find a lot of threads on this issue now.
Use the Windows firewall.  Many believe it is sufficient.

Unless you have upgraded the power supply the one that comes with that antec case is massively insufficient to run an HD5570. The case comes with a 150w PSU, Sapphire recommends at least a 400w power supply for that video card. An overloaded power supply will cause windows to crash, and an under powered video card will also crash the system.

hi Jamietoner - no i have not upgraded it.  Can I?  I was not sure with this case?  
After looking into the case further I don't believe it can be upgraded. Here is another mini itx case, it is a bit larger but it comes with a much better power supply.

Thanks guys you all supported me.  I do feel that Uninstalling Zone alarm has stopped the problem.  But Of course the graphic card power is also a problem.  Maybe I have not worked it to the full extent yet.
