I suspect the two are related.
Highly doubtful...in the case of the BSOD, you have a hardware problem somewhere. Could be processor, memory, motherboard or other devices such as video card or driver but software should not be able to bring hardware down like that.
In terms of the DNG profiles, odds are when you rebuilt you didn't re-install the profiles (they were bundled with the DNG Converter). Download DNG Converter 5.6 and run the install.
I know it's highly doubtful, but I posted all I knew.
I'm on CS3 so 5.6 applies?
I did the bundled 4.6 D/L
I am systematicaly going through all the HW so we will see. I doubt the memory or the processor, but stranger things have happened!
Ok I traced it trough Startup in msconfig to" Reader_sl", which resides inthe Registry:
Unchecking this cures the Blue screen, but if begs a question.Why?
I still am unsure of the missing profiles.
