Why is it crashing. about every 17 minutes.
There are a lot more minidump files than what is attached

Can't perform a System Restore because the 1st minidump is from Aug 14 6:05am and the farthest back goes is Aug 14 at 12 noon.

I wonder if the BSOD has to do with a scheduled event. When I open Task Scheduler, I get a few error messages that some of the scheduled items are corrupted. Some are displaying as a long set of numbers instead of names. Does anyone know if windows has any required built in scheduled item that I need to create if I would delete the corrupted ones?

I uninstalled Norton Internet Security 2009 because I saw in a more recent BSOD mentioning a file from that program.
I will let you know how the computer is without Norton.

Computer should be fine. The driver below seems to be the culprit....

I would make sure that the file does NOT exist, and no longer set to run.....

Autoruns

Check the Drivers Tab to be safe....

start             end                 module name
fffff880`010eb000 fffff880`01152000   SYMEFA64 T (no symbols)

The computer has not given a BSOD since I removed Norton Internet Security 2009. I will see what happens when I install NIS 2012.

Any reason you are choosing Norton? There are plenty of FREE alternatives, that work just as good, with smaller footprints.....

Avast
AVG
Microsoft Security Essentials (favorite)

Thanks. It seems that Norton Internet Security 2009 had a problem with some Windows 7 updates. I upgraded to 2012 and the problem was resolved.
