Could I please have some help understanding the cause of the repeated crashes?

They're all EXCEPTION_BREAKPOINT which suggests bad programming, no? But I can't figure out what addon is causing it. I've disabled all the most likely addons, to no avail.

Basically, an OOM (Out Of Memory) means the system is having issues with the RAM.

You will need a thumb or disk drive to install it on.

OMG! Thank you @FredMcD.

I disabled my pagefile.sys to shrink my drive and forgot to turn it back on again. No wonder my poor PC's been unstable!

Thank you so much for finding this. And now I know what OOM meant!
