Random BSOD when using IE or Firefox

Have a odd issue, I keep getting random BSOD that seem to be triggered by going to certain websites. Usually the stupid sites that have a lot of ads and advertisements that annoy you to death and also I have noticed it happens a lot when I am on Facebook scrolling through my news feed. Happens on IE and FireFox. One example is I have been using my PC for about three days straight with no reboot, using local programs like office, only going to a few news sites and it was fine, this morning I started looking at FaceBook from FireFox and it BSOD.

I already tried doing Windows updates, virus scans, reinstalled all hardware drivers. Reinstalled Silver Light, Divx. Removed and reinstalled all Java and Adobe related software.

Any clues what would cause this type of issue related to certain websites like Facebook?

System is Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

This is the most common error:
0x00000050
ntoskrnl.exe+70180

These have errors at least three times:
0x0000001e
ntoskrnl.exe+70180

0x0000003b
ntoskrnl.exe+70180


Then a few that hit once or twice:
0x00000001
ntoskrnl.exe+70180

0x00000019
ntoskrnl.exe+70180

0x0000007f
ntoskrnl.exe+70180

0x000000d1
ntoskrnl.exe+70180

Sounds like you have two problems, one of them the crash and the other one being ad spam.

If you can post a crash mini-dump for us, or better yet several of them, that will be enormously helpful.

Until then ... sites that have a lot of ads cause the system to run all over the internet picking up the tracking, the statistics, the ads, this, that and the other thing.  This causes a fair amount of networking traffic that is not, strictly speaking, necessary and may be contributing to a network related problem.

I suggest installing Adblock Plus in Firefox, which will mitigate some of the ads.  (See image below)  I'm not entirely happy with Adblock Plus because it has a log-rolling quid pro quo relationship with major ad sites that allows "non-intrusive" ads ... but since Adblock Edge is no longer available, that's the remaining option for ad blocking.

Then see if the problem eases up.  If it does, there may be a network issue in the host.

If the problem does not ease, then I'd run Memtest-86+ on it for 24 hours to see if there are memory problems.

Adblock removes considerable ad and annoyance spam

Thanks I will see if I can upload the minidumps. I ran memtest86+ for two days with no errors.

That's a good point maybe the extra traffic is blowing up the NIC and causing the crash. I did update the NIC drivers but haven't tried new hardware.

This is a screen shot of the info from BlueScreenView but I can't tell exactly what the issue is by looking at this.

What is the best way to drill down and see more details of what is causing the BSOD?
