Recently, my Dell desktop has been randomly crashing when left running for an extended period of time. The following information was written to the dump file:
Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\ntoskrnl.exe, Win32 error 0n2

Has anyone experienced this issue with the ntoskrnl.exe causing Windows Vista to crash? I am running Windows Vista 64-bit home premium
This behavior starting occurring last week after the latest set of Windows Vista updates were automatically installed on my computer (KB973879, KB973874, KB970653 and KB972036). I also uninstalled and old version of McFee Security Center and installed AVS Anti-Virus Free Editon 8.5.
Also, the BSOD would also occur when I disconnected my iPhone from my computer.
@Wil - Is there a suggested tool for determining if I have a roolkit installed on my workstation.
Here are the crash codes from my latest BSOD. Also, I had to reinstall my drivers for my Belkin G Wireless USB Network Adapter and it cleared my cookies cache from IE8.
@Wil - I tried running Rootkit Revealer and it wrote the following application error to the event log:
Faulting application RootkitRevealer.exe, version 184.108.40.206, time stamp 0x44e255aa, faulting module RootkitRevealer.exe, version 220.127.116.11, time stamp 0x44e255aa, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x000040cd, process id 0x11b0, application start time 0x01ca2ab8f0adc004.
