Right click my computer and click properties. Click the advanced tab. Click Startup and Recovery. Take the tick out of the box for Automatically restart and click ok. Next time you get the memory dump it won't restart the computer automatically. On that memory dump screen, it will tell you the cause of the memory dump. It can be an error (ie not less than or equal: which can point to memory) or it will list a file, which can indicate a driver issue. If you've already ran memtest and it's passing, there are any number of issues that can cause BSOD's. Write down the error your getting the next time it BSOD's so we can narrow down the possibilities.

You can also check event viewer in Control Panel -> Administrator Tools -> Event Viewer. Look through the logs and see if there's a listing for an event that corresponds with the time that the computer crashed. You often get quite a few errors and warnings during startup so it may not be first in the list. So take note of the time when you BSOD to make it easier to locate the log. If it's a BSOD and if there is a log, it will most likely be in the critical section.

Also what are your temps like? Are you overclocking your computer? When does it happen most often? Is it pretty typical that it's every 20 minutes or is it more random?

To help somewhat pin it down, download 'Whocrashed' as that can read the crashdump files and it can help us a bit.

Also, if you running Win7 do a few passes of Windows memory diagnostic (or make a disk with Memtest on it and run it to test your RAM).
Most of the time, its a RAM thing.

Welcome to WhoCrashed (HOME EDITION) v 3.03


This program checks for drivers which have been crashing your computer. If your computer has displayed a blue screen of death, suddenly rebooted or shut down then this program will help you find the root cause and possibly a solution.

Whenever a computer suddenly reboots without displaying any notice or blue screen of death, the first thing that is often thought about is a hardware failure. In reality, on Windows most crashes are caused by malfunctioning device drivers and kernel modules. In case of a kernel error, many computers do not show a blue screen unless they are configured for this. Instead these systems suddenly reboot without any notice.

This program will analyze your crash dumps with the single click of a button. It will tell you what drivers are likely to be responsible for crashing your computer. If will report a conclusion which offers suggestions on how to proceed in any situation while the analysis report will display internet links which will help you further troubleshoot any detected problems.

Just click the Analyze button for a comprehensible report ...

Crash Dump Analysis


Crash dump directory: C:\Windows\Minidump

Crash dumps are enabled on your computer.


On Mon 2/6/2012 3:43:54 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\020512-12105-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7CC40)
Bugcheck code: 0x1A (0x8884, 0xFFFFFA800322E4E0, 0xFFFFFA8003249510, 0x105)
Error: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that a severe memory management error occurred.
This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.


On Mon 2/6/2012 3:43:54 AM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: aswsnx.sys (aswSnx+0x1C2C4)
Bugcheck code: 0x1A (0x8884, 0xFFFFFA800322E4E0, 0xFFFFFA8003249510, 0x105)
Error: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
file path: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\aswsnx.sys
product: avast! Antivirus System
company: AVAST Software
description: avast! Virtualization Driver
Bug check description: This indicates that a severe memory management error occurred.
This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: aswsnx.sys (avast! Virtualization Driver, AVAST Software).
Google query: aswsnx.sys AVAST Software MEMORY_MANAGEMENT





Conclusion


2 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. A third party driver has been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer. It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:

aswsnx.sys (avast! Virtualization Driver, AVAST Software)

If no updates for these drivers are available, try searching with Google on the names of these drivers in combination the errors that have been reported for these drivers and include the brand and model name of your computer as well in the query. This often yields interesting results from discussions from users who have been experiencing similar problems.


Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

well running this program it says the antivirus i run is the cause

Nuke the Anti-Virus and try MSE instead and see if it still does it.
