I have a Windows 8 Pro machine that seems to be crashing about 50% of the times I attempt to connect to a VPN. I've noticed it started happening more often when having to connect to multiple types of VPN's either separately or at the same time. I have the minidump files but don't know how to read them or have the time during the workday to do so. If someone could look at the attached minidump.zip which contains three of the dumps and advise me as to how to fix my issue that would be awesome. I expect that I need to update a network card driver or something.

I would run a memtest to make sure the ram is stable.

Also make sure your drivers are up-to-date.  wanarp is typically related to RDP sessions

30357 says :  WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124)  and : GenuineIntel_PROCESSOR_BUS_PRV

so it can either be the ram, or a motherboard / cpu problem

if the ram tests fine, check if your hardware is ok by running from a live Knoppix cd :
