BSODs related to win32k.sys

  1. Hello there, I've looking for help about this everywhere but there's nothing to be found. I've been recently experimenting BSODs related to a win32k.sys driver. Before this I had suffered from BSODs pointing to one klif.sys which is a controller from Kaspersky Internet Security. I uninstalled Kaspersky and I stopped having BSODs related to that file, but now this win32k.sys problem has started to show. I saved a complete dump file of the problem and I've pasted the results here, but I'm no programmer so I don't understand the results. If it means anything I've recently installed a WD 150 GB IDE Hard Disk, which has also been bugging me with a lot of CRC errors recently. I don't know if that has anything to do with my recent BSODs, but I thought I would let you know.

    Here are the results from the dump file:

    EDIT - I've attached them to a .txt file.

    What Antivirus are you now using?
    Depending upon your answer, I'd say un-install it and use Avira instead

    There you go.

    By the way, I'm using Nod32 now. I was very satisfied with Kaspersky before the klif.sys BSODs, and I'm not sure how Nod would cause these errors.

    I like Nod32 as well
    But it can have similar error
    I have never seen an error with Avira though ;)
