HP z210 experienced blue screen. Need help understanding memory dump file

My pc is an HP z210 running Windows 7 pro.
The computer recently experienced a blue screen.
I have the memory dump  but the file is too large to attach to an Experts-exchange message.  Experts-exchange apparently limits attachments to 50 megabytes.

I don't understand how to read dump files.  Where could I send this file so someone in Experts-exchange could examine it and translate it for me?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Please attach the .dmp file as instructed by @Nobus.

That Blue screen might be related to a recently Optional / Important Windows update. if you think that can be related to recent update then use System Restore to fix the issue and then prevent Windows to offer Optional updates. you can also Boot your PC in safe mode and then try to uninstall suspicious updates or Softwares.


How to use System Restore:

Restart Windows and just before the Windows logo appears  keep tapping F8 till you reach the boot menu. If you missed, wait for the Windows logon screen to appear, then restart it again. Select Repair Your Computer and Enter.  select "en" for English and then in next menu select Admin and type Admin Password, then go to System Recovery Options, then select System Restore. now select a date before the Blue screen started happening.

Building on what nobus has mentioned, Nirsoft also has a minidump viewing utility: https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html

Naturally, you can upload and have assistance if need be. Do you have any idea what the error on the blue screen was?

Mr. Nasser:  I failed to uncheck the “Automatic restart” in the Startup and recovery section of the control panel so the z210 rebooted immediately after displaying the blue screen.  

Hello nobus:  Thank you for your help in the past.  I'll do this as soon as possible.

Hello Raneesh:  Thank you for the information.  I will use the tools you describe as soon as possible

Hello Ramin:  Will do as soon as possible.  

Hello Masnrock:  Thank you for the information.  I will try this.

I appreciate all the answers.  I will try using the tools all of you have described as soon as possible.  I know Experts-exchange wants the questions closed as soon as possible.

I will assign points now and will ask more questions later.

Thank you all for your prompt responses.  I really appreciate the help.
