    Memory.dmp after startup.


    I'm running windows 8 (not 8.1, and im not planning to upgrade until its out of beta), Sometimes, when I turn it off, it will take a looooong time to turn off (to 3 - 4 minutes) , sometimes it does not.
    But when it does, whenever I turn it on again, right after it starts up an error message pops up saying an error ocurred and if I want to send the details to microsoft.
    The problem is related to some file in C:/windows called Memory.dmp and something with sysdata.xml (there was a code in there but I can't remember it.)
    Also, for some reason, when I install Windows Updates, after they finish, I get that BSOD error and I have to run a restore point, and its driving me crazy, so any suggestions on how to solve all this?. ..

    , thanks, but I was actually going to create another thread for that BOSD because this one was supposed to be for the memory.dmp error...

    "One thread to rule them all, one thread to find them.
    One thread to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them"

    But seriously, please keep all BSOD issues in one topic. BSOD crashes are what generates memory dump files.
