Windows 7 Pro machine with all updates applied.  The BSOD is 0xf4
I loaded the latest chipset, video and network drivers.

This has been going on for a while and generally the finger is pointed to a Microsoft program,
wininit or csrss, mainly wininit.  Unfortunately the 0xf4 has no clear indication of the real problem.  I have also run memory check to see if there was a bad chip but with no problems were found

Thanks for the help

should have mentioned I ran the sfc/ scannow it didn't find anything
not really sure what would be expected from running startup repair, I thought that was for machines that wouldn't start.  This one does start but fails occasionally.

Did you see anything in the dumps I might have missed?

Thx

this should clear it up :  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/startup-repair-faq#1TC=windows-7

if that does not fix your problem; you better go for a fresh install

Please uninstall "Intel Microcode Updater" if you have it on your Programs list. And report the results.
And also take and upload a screenshot from all the programs installed by intel from Add/Remove programs.

Loaded Driver Verifier, waited for a Blue Screen and found that the problem was a piece of software from GoToMyPC, monblanking.sys.  Removed Windows Driver Package - Citrix Systems monblanking Citrix Driver and problem has not returned.

Thanks for your help

Driver Verifier correctly identified the reason for the Blue Screen.  Once the real reason was found the problem software was removed
