  1. Good day!

    I just installed a loader due to being branded not genuine by windows even though I have genuine windows. I was in a hurry for activation so I installed Open 7 Act*vator 1.2.5. After the mandatory restart, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL then appeared. This then happened many many times.

    I should have researched on this and activated it the long way by calling microsoft...:(

    Attached is the dump created by the BSOD.

    Thanks!.

    Your issue is with your ESET Smart Secuirty driver epfwwfp.sys. Now ESET makes great security software; I run their version 4 of their Antivirus and love it.

    But even the best have issues from time to time. In your case it is not loading. Are you running any other security software in real time protection?
