  1. I am getting a BSOD of IRQL less or not equal immediately after trying to shut down from the start menu. This will in turn restart the computer instead of shutting down. If anyone can take a look at my minidump it would be greatly appreciated.

    Do you have Labview installed? Or any other software from National Instruments?

    Thanks, uninstalling labview did the trick

    Glad to hear stability has returned. A number of people on the net have reported having issues with Labview's driver nipalk.sys which was cited as the cause in your dump.
