Did you recently update Java on your machine, and get a free installation of McAfee Security Scanner as part of the installation?
Were you already, previously running an antivirus scanner?

This not the right dump file. Dump files end with .dmp and is located in windows folder. Try uploading the minidump.

Able to debug the dump file. The dump points to nvlddmkm.sys.

It seems this is a nvidia driver. You have a nvidia video card. Try installation latest driver for nvidia card and the issue will get resolved.

If you can't find a more current nvidia driver... and/or if that doesn't resolve the issue,  and if you aren't relying on the free McAfee scanner, which I assume you aren't, go ahead and uninstall it (it = the free McAfee scanner).  It should have added an uninstall option in the start menu.
