  1. Hi,
    I just got a 0xD1 BSOD that has something to do with tcpip6.sys. I was running bittorrent which uses IPv6. Was it caused by bittorrent?
    I have attached a minidump.
    Thanks in advance,
    Oron.

    hi,

    Yes Bittorrent probably has caused this. It depends on what you are downloading and from where.

    I am going to assume (as an example) that you are downloading some free software. While the software may be legitimate the sites that hosts these torrents are probably not.

    If you need to download torrents i recommend using uTorrent over BitTorrent. Also try using AVG with when searching as AVG is pretty good at spotting the "bad" torrent sites.

    Reboot in safe mode and i would do a quick roll back see if that stops the BSOD


    Hope this helps

    Definitely caused by this.
    Agree - same symptoms today. Bit Torrent and bad torrentz :) Downloading to much ... in one moment. Twice BSOD occured. Maybe I will turn the IPV6 protocol in my router or maybe I will update my driver NIC or update driver tcpip6.sys we will see.
