    Angry BSOD after Unplugging USB Wifi Dongle

    This only happens when I am transferring files to a flash drive or MP3 player. First I will lose my wifi signal and the Network icon freezes. Then when I unplug the wifi dongle I get a BSOD. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Don't just unplug the Dongle. Use the little tray icon to 'safely remove usb device' The dongle probably draws a bit of current and usb can be a bit sensitive. I will let others troubleshoot your connection problems.

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    These are prefaced by the following errors each time it happens.

    The minidump log files are found in C:/windows/minidump folder.

    The first part should be cut and pasted here, leave the rest off or risk the wrath of a moderator.

    An example would be this:
