  1. Hi,
    i've been getting this BSOD for some time now, and i have NO idea what is causing it.
    i've read the topic of a guy who had the same problem on this site, but he just formatted, didn't get resolved.

    can anyone help me?

    i have a Athlon 64 x2 5600, radeon 4670 512, 2gb ram ddr2, m2n4-sli mobo.

    thanks!

    Hi Pink
    Just for future reference, you can use the Edit button to add to your Topic, if your post is still the last post in the Topic (presently not :rolleyes: )

    Sometimes when getting a BSoD you also get a Minidump.
    Have a look in Start > Run > c:\Windows\Minidump > ok
    Folder for any recent Minidumps that you can attach > [​IMG] to a new reply

    Also check for any/all driver updates from your manufacture support site: http://asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=Tiqsh7TlDIG7JbO3&content=download

    And make sure your XP is up to SP3, info here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/322389

    Please uninstall Perfect Uninstaller
    If you cannot find it is Add/Remove programs, have a look at Start > Run > %ProgramFiles%\Perfect Uninstaller

    The exact file causing the issue was sfilter.sys
    But I don't think this is it exactly. What I do think is that you have Malware installed
    Please run through this guide: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html
    I also wonder which Antivirus you are running? And if a purchased Antivirus, when does it expire?

    Edit:
    Oh I just realized, that these Minidumps were created in April, and therefore may not be relevant

    Hey, thanks so much for taking interest in this topic, i been having this problem for a long time, and i'm losing hope..

    i'm using AVG antivirus, it expires February 2nd 2018.

    i ran all of those malware removal programs, malwarebytes found nothing, as did the antivirus.

    here are more recent minidumps.

    thanks a lot for helping me out!

    EDIT: i uninstalled perfect uninstaller as well!

    That's ironic its the same issue: sfilter.sys
    Please locate this file and rename it to sfilter.old


    The expiry date on AVG is a bit strange (anyway, I don't even like AVG)
    This is what I'd recommend due to that

    Uninstall AVG normally
    Then run the AVG Remover (as it won't fully uninstall without it) http://www.avg.com/filedir/util/support/avgremover_en.exe
    Restart

    Download install and update to Free Avira Antivirus http://www.free-av.com/
    Run a full scan (allowing Avira to find and remove any found Malwares (actually this is automatic)

    I'm positive that doing the above will fix your issue
