    Re: HELP! vista 32 ataport.SYS error

    You did a good job, I got the report that I needed
    There was only one mini dump report (shows you had one BSOD).
    It is impossible to get a definitive answer based on one report, but I did get clues, so lets start there.

    Ataport.sys was mentioned as a potential cause as was Security Essentials. May I suggest
    Run a full antivirus scan
    Download, update and run a full scan with malwarebytes
    Run an SFC Scan
    If nothing else seems to work
    Uninstall Security Essentials and replace with another Anti Virus
    Before uninstallin Security Essentials, make a System Restore point, so you can go back if that is not the cause.
    System Files - SFC Command
    avast! Free Antivirus - Download Software for Virus Protection

    Works in safe mode, but not in regular mode. Based upon that and other information given, it still sounds like a driver. Do a boot log, it will tell us the problem driver
