Everything appears to be fine with the hardware. I used Norton Utiltites to defragment the disk as well as clean the and compact windows registry prior to this happening.
I also ran an up to date Norton Internet Security complete disk scan which only found 24 tracking cookies. Nothing else.
What I found alarming here was after the blue screen was that all browsers failed to work though they did work under safe mode with networking.
I intent to contact both HP and Norton to try to get to the bottom of this.
Note I could connect via SSH in regular windows 7 mode even though the browsers failed to connect.
I then did a system repair restore to last good one 10/3/2013 but If I do the same things I expect all this to repeat so I would love to get to the bottom of this sooner rather than later
I have an external wireless mouse, keyboard and bio-metric device connected.
I am tempted to uninstall Dragon because Nuance keeps plaguging me with bad software updates that never happen and using active-x components which by now should be extinct
