I only get this error when copying form PC2 to PC1 (I have not tried in the other direction). At all other times the PC has no problems at all.
I have had BSODs before but not related, recently had to fit new hard drive and fresh install of XP home SP2 with all latest updates.

So we can correctly solve this issue we need to get the minidumps.
To get the Minidumps do the following
1 > Create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like.
2 > Navigate to %systemroot%\minidump You can paste that address in address bar to get there. Then copy the last few minidump files to that folder.%systemroot% is normally c:\windows. They are numbered by date.
3 > Close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder. Please do NOT compress them in .rar
4 > Use the "add reply" option upload that zip file here as an attachment.

Probably caused by : memory corruption
Now I am getting more confused!
I just tried copying some files over from my daughters pc, from her end. My pc locks up, desktop still there but no response to mouse and ctrl alt del. Reboot and check event log to find nothing, check for new minidump file find nothing.
Try copying files from my daughters pc to mine from my end. On the 3rd folder my pc crashes to a black screen, no response to anything, have to reboot, nothing in event log and no new minidump file so nothing to analyse as to what went wrong, I am starting to hate my pc. I will run memtest86 overnight to see if that turns anything up.

Lets us know how those tests turn up.
How old is the router?

The router is about 4 months old. I am posting on 4 different forums at the moment trying to get to the bottom of this problem. As I said, this is a new install on a new hard drive so there is very little in the way of programs installed so far but could it be related to that, for example I have installed photoshop elements 5 and office xp.
I have not been able to update the driver for my graphics card as the new driver I downloaded fron the Nvidia website was not recognised when i tried it.
After running memtest86 for 6 passes with no errors I stopped it and rebooted the pc, went out for a while only to find a BSOD on my return. Attached is the full analysis of the dump file, it still says it is a memory coruption. I will now begin to take out some of my RAM and try to eliminate that.
I have also tried another network adaptor to try to eliminate that aspect and I still get a failure so I gues it isnt that.
I have noticed that the screen seems to flicker quite noticably when I first log on, which it didnt before, maybe I will have to fork out for a new graphics card to try that. Is it an easy job to remove and replace the graphics card, some advice would be appreciated.

Who is the manufacture of your Hard drive?

Report back if you get any errors.

Thanks for all of your help, it is much appreciated and I have learnt quite a lot(not sure if some is relevant to vista) I am sure I will need to post again when I rebuild/re-install my old pc.
