Blue Screen of Death

Recently started getting blue screen of death quite regularly. When it happens, it says this:
"*A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as chaching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then select safe mode.
Technical information: * STOP: 0x000000FA (0x00000001, 0xFC80360, 0xA89A2588, 0x00000BB5) * HTTP.SYS - Address A89A2588 base at A8999000, Datestamp 4adde33f
Beginning dump of physical memory Dumping physical memory to disk:*"
After, when Windows boots up again, WinPatrol pops up with a "New programe alert" asking if I apporove of the new program "%systemroot%\system32\dumprep 0 -k" I always click on "NO"
But I'm more concerned as to why this blue screen of death has suddenly started happening. The first time it happened, I did a system resore to a time before the blue screen of death happened and it stopped for a bit but now it's happening regularly again.
Thanx in advance

Would a vaccuum cleaner be better than a hairdryer
Yes as it would suck dirt out rather than blow dirt into the innards of the laptop. Do not leave on grills for long and if you can adjust the suction(speed)then do at a reasonably low setting.
