I first noticed the issue when I plugged a camera into the computer, this was not the first time I plugged in the camera. Almost immediately after I did, my computer froze for about 10 or 20 seconds before returning to normal. I then took a picture off the camera, put it into photoshop, and within seconds got a bluescreen. When my computer froze before the bluescreen it said explorer.exe and dr.watson debugger unexpectedly stopped working even though I was not running explorer.
This was the stop code: Stop 0x0000008e (0x0000047, 0x804FCF44, 0x80550EB4, 0x00000000)
When I tried updating malwarebytes after the reboot, it froze on updating, but still said it fully updated. (error code below).
When I researched the issue, I saw many posts sighting a graphics driver as the source. So I then updated my graphics card driver. Graphics card: nvidia gtx260. Driver: 275.33 WHQL
After this things seemed to run smoothly although I noticed that when I brought up the task manager, my processes, cpu usage, and commit charge values did not show up right away. (I am still having this minor issue).
Tonight, I had another bluescreen. I was on flickr and logged off when my computer froze, it did return back to normal. I then went to google images and shortly after received another freeze and ultimately a bluescreen.
Blue screen 2 info: Stop: 0x0000008e (0x0000001, 0x88478925, 0xB21E1400, 0x00000000)
watchdog.sys - address B8478925 base at B8478000, Datestamp 480254ab
I then updated 2 of my firefox plugins (flashplayer and java). And checked for windows updates. After this bluescreen, it told me to update my video drivers, but on the updates page there were none. The only update I installed was this: 'Update for Windows XP (KB2492386)"
What I've noticed is that these problems have occurred when dealing with images. Strangely enough, I have had no trouble playing videogames. I've also run several avira and malwarebytes scans, they are both updated and have found no viruses. In addition to that, I have run CCleaner several times and have been cleaning out my temp data more frequently.
In my event viewer I have spotted these errors:
