    Dump memory files

    While listening to a radio program on my Vista Home(64),suddenly I hear crackling noise,blank screen shows,on the bottom:Beginning to dump physical memory files and a count down.I shut the computer off immediately and re-started again.It seems to work as before,but I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED,WHY,AND WHAT TO DO (if anything)ABOUT IT.My computer is always up to date,have Secunia also,and Malwarebytes(pro),Anti exploit(free),Avast(free),all MS updates done when appear.Please advise what to do.Thank you!
