Blue Screen of Death Minidump analysis request

Greetings wise wizards of EE:

I'm helping a friend over the phone with a Windows PC (unfortunately she did not provide me what version she is using, but I believe it is XP), that is experiencing the dreaded Blue Screen of Death. I did send her instructions to e-mail me the MINIDUMP file that has been created on her machine (there are several, but the attached file is the most recent).

I am hoping that one of you fine wizards can analyze the minidump to illuminate why the BSOD is created. I appreciate all input, but rather than provide general PC health advice, I would kindly ask for an analysis of the specific minidump file that is attached.

My many thanks in advance,

Zovoth

Crash is probably due to Rtlh86.sys file as which is realted to Realtek hardware. can you check and update the drivers for realtek.

I concur with Rtlh86.sys being the culprit. Should be driver for network (ethernet) adapter. OS is Windows 7 and appears to be 32 bit version but you need to verify whether it is 32 or 64 bit.
