Post Constant BSOD

Well I have fresh install of windows vista and I keep getting BSOD. Sometime it happens when and sometimes it doesn't. I know it's a driver issue but have no idea on how to troubleshoot it myself. I have noticed this issue mainly happens when the flash player is in use. Like when I'm playing videos or playing apps on facebook.

My computer generated this Microsoft Windows error report:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.0.6002.
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 1000008e
BCP1: C0000005
BCP2: 8272B010
BCP3: 9D6A3AA4
BCP4: 00000000
OS Version: 6_0_6002
Service Pack: 2_0
Product: 768_1

Files that help describe the problem:

I will also include the everest report of my computer in here as well. I will patiently wait for your reply.

Default Re: Constant BSOD

Copy C:\Windows\Minidump\Mini070912-03.dmp to your Desktop, zip and attach it to a reply please.

The 0x8E is often caused by a bad driver, looking at the non-hardware drivers listed by Everest, I'd guess that PCTools was the most likely culprit. I would uninstall it completely and use MSE, at least for the duration of testing.

Uninstall Flash and install Flash 10.3 from here as the new 11.3 version with it's sandbox does cause problems for some users.

Post Re: Constant BSOD

Ok I have done everything you told me to do and luckily there was no BSOD, which I am kinda shocked about. Anyways I will post up the mini dump file as requested. Thank you for all of your help so far.

There were no further clues that I could see in the crash dump. Analysis becomes easier with more dumps to work with.

Assuming that all the PCT* drivers have been uninstalled, you only need to concern yourself with updating the older drivers, 2010 and earlier.

If you still get BSOD's after updating, we'll need to turn on Driver Verifier, please read these instructions very carefully, it can block Windows from loading so you need to know how to work around it should that occur (System Restore!).
