    The BSOD usually tells you what was the problem (error code, address if memory conflict, driver who caused the crash,...)

    C:\Windows\Minidump\

    Find the most recent three files or so in there, upload them to mediafire.com, and link us.

    DO NOT DO WHAT RYDIAN says about your minidumps, uploading them. Minidumps can also contain info on your system, incuding logins and passwords. Uploading them for anyone to view, you might as well just slap a sticker with stupid printed on your forehead.

    As good intentioned as Rydian is, it is not one of his brightest answers.

    Use Blue screen of death viewer: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html

    The area that causes the crash is usually highlighted in red in the app.

    Do it anyways. The problem causing the crash is likely still there, just whatever was triggering it at that time isn't active. If you wait it's likely to happen again because you need to actually FIX IT. In order to fix it, somebody needs to examine the dumps.

    hash info for login into the system.

    which can be brute forced if an attacker can remote access the system.



    It is a security NO-NO.

    This is the first I've ever heard of that, so I call BS. Cite a source (or grab the hash out of the file and I'll tell you if it's correct).
