[Winpcap-users] winpcap and McAfee

When your machine crashes, depending on how it's configured, it generates a 
crash dump or minidump. The crash dump is called memory.dmp and it's located 
under c:\windows (it gets overwritten at every crash), the minidumps are 
saved in c:\windows\minidump and the name of the file contains the date of 
the crash.

It would be great if you can send the minidump directly to me. If a kernel 
dump is generated instead, please zip it and upload it at 

Have a nice day
