So I have gotten a few BSoDs lately, and I think I was getting more that I didnt get to see because I was running ashampoo's program that automatically resets upon the BSoD.

This hasn't happened before I installed ashampoo (optimizer, burner, firewall, defrager... the works) and I get this "stop" thingy

0X0000008E (0S80000003, 0X804E3586, 0XA13FDA8C, 0X00000000)

I run uTorrent (legally) all day, and firefox obviously. My first thought was from having my computer on 24/7 it may be overheating - hence shutting off, and also I am running a pretty big system (2 hds, 2 fans not including cpu, and a Radeon x1300 256 agp) on like a 250 watt... (I know I know... get a bigger one)

Any ideas whats going on here?

This only happened AFTER you installed ashampoo right?? 0x00000008E is kind of a rare error though....

*EDIT* Don't worry, it's most likely NOT an overheat issue, that would almost always shutdown the PC not BSOD it.
