Open Windows File Explore
Navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump
Copy the mini-dump files out onto your Desktop
use winzip or winrar to zip the files on the desktop
Upload the zip file to the Cloud (OneDrive, DropBox . . . etc.)
Then post a link here to the zip file, so we can take a look for you . . .

not sure if my app can do Vista dump files but worth a try
NTOSKRNL = windows kernel. It handles all driver requests, power management, and memory management. It sits between Hardware and Applications. It got blamed but its not the cause

I had a Dual core E6600 once. On Vista for about 6 years.
what motherboard do you have?
