  1. Hi

    Whenever I'm downloading torrents, I get a BSOD. I googled this problem, and read that I should update my network drivers. I did this, but still I'm getting these BSOD.

    What antivirus/antimalware programs are you running?

    Are there any yellow (!) exclamation points in the device manager? A network driver problem is flagged in the minidumps

    So you are still plagued with a network driver problem. Have you applied all the Windows Updates, including all the optional ones?

    So did you get these BSOD's today after the updates were installed?

    No, I'm having them for a while now. There are periods when it doesn't happen a lot, but lately I can't use bittorrent for more then a few minutes.

    I'm using both Telenet and Belgacom (Belgium), and I'm having the same problems. I also don't have the BSOD's when using other machines.
