Blue Screen on Vista SP1

Do blue screen still exists in the new and latest Operating system from Microsoft... ?

Additional information about the problem:

Files that help describe the problem:
  C:\Windows\Minidump\Mini040208-01.dmp
  c:\temp\WER-374105-0.sysdata.xml
  c:\temp\WER6B5F.tmp.version.txt

Clicking on the Check for Solution button, it deleted those files and close the dialog box really quick.  So I went and check on the Windows Error Reporting folder located at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive

In there I found two files:  Report.cab and Report.wer.  Opening the Report.cab yield those 3 files reported on the Dialog box.

Now I went and open the version.txt file:

Windows NT  Version 6.0 Build: 6001 Service Pack 1
Product (0x4): Windows Vista (TM) Enterprise
Edition: Enterprise
BuildString: 6001.18000.amd64fre.longhorn_rtm.080118-1840
Flavor: Multiprocessor Free
Architecture: X64
LCID: 1033

The sysdata.xml contains a list of all of the drivers currently loaded:

so right now I don't know what caused the blue screen, and I am not sure if this information was ever transmitted to Microsoft.  For the record I have a Dell D820 with 4GB Ram running Vista Enterprise 64bits.

I have started to see more and more people getting blue screen's on Vista after they installed SP1. Coincidence?  ;)

I get a random BSOD in Vista all the time ever since I installed a new ATI Radeon video card (but less often after SP1). Installed the latest video drivers, trolled for reported issues, etc...but every time it happens I get so bloody mad at Vista that I reboot and walk away until the next day, so I never hunted down the mini dump and error info or called ATI support. Maybe I should before I really lose something important...

I have had this crash occur 3-4x per day and then every 2 minutes. I finally tracked it down to Norton Internet Security 2009. Norton took over my computer and uninstalled and reinstalled. Everything worked again for a week or so. Then the crashes started again. I suspect Norton automatic updates cause this. I have unistalled Norton and installed zone alarm. After 10 hours, so far no crashes.Even having no security other than Windows had no crashes.
