I tried the changes suggested but got the same Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

I ran verifier and this is the list of drivers to verify:

Aspi32
Atmhelpr
Cor4_xp
Cdralw2k
Cdudf_xp
Ctac32k
Ctprxy2k
Ctsfm2k
Dvd_2k
Emupial2k
Fwcore
Mdc8021x
Nv4_mini
Pcouffin
Pfc
Pwd_2k
Pxhelp20
Stealth
Udfreadr_xp

Did know if this would help. Also, I have used the computer for over a year without a problem. Should I consider restoring to a date from a long time ago before I had the problem?

Thanks again for all you effort.

How many sticks of ram is installed??

Every error you are getting refers to either a bad device driver or bad memory..

Just came back to add this: I went to the event viewer as I am getting the blue screen every 20 min or so and everytime the error under system says:

The following failed to load DumaNT

Not sure if this helps.

I need to check my memory to answer your question. I get back soon.

Yep.. remove 1 stick and run memtest.. If all checks out, replace the test stick with the one you removed and run it again..

Let the test run for 5 or 6 passes minimum..

Ran mem test the way you asked. Something interesting when I reconnected, I ran the dsl line directly from the dsl modem to my computer and could not find the internet. When I reconnected to my wireless router (a DL-524) and then cabled to the computer it finds my homepage right away. Could this lead to another possiblity?

Thanks again

Fwcore.sys is a firewall. In fact it is the firewall that belongs to eAcceleration's Stop Sign AV.

Have you tried uninstalling that firewall.

They have an uninstaller you can get to from add or remove programs.
