BSODs that has only started a few days ago - Windows 7

  1. I have recently started getting BSODs. The only thing that has changed was the installation of AnyDVD, but it was not set to start on boot, so I am not sure if it is the actual cause.

    I then thought that it might be Symantec Endpoint Protection, so I uninstalled it, performed a Windows Update, and then installed a trial of ESET Endpoint Security.

    I also ran a mem test using memtest86+ and the ram seems to be fine.

    However, the BSODs keep happening and often, multiple times a day.

    The system is a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with the latest windows updates.

    I have attached the dump files. Any suggests appreciated :)

    Thank you for your reply TMagic :) Prior to posting my first post, I have already checked the hard drives and they did not seem to throw up any problems.

    Did the dumps indicate that ESET is the cause of the problems?

    Cheers :)

    Those 3rd party antivirus programs can interfere with the built-in Windows firewall and Windows Defender causing your kind of instability, so try MSE and see if the BSOD's stop

    I removed all third party antivirus programs/firewalls and just ran with Windows firewall and Windows defender (did not install MSE).

    However, I just got a BSOD for no apparent reason. Interestingly, there was no minidump file for that. What could be the problem?

    Here's the 2 entries in the eventlog:

    Are you over-clocking the motherboard? Set the bios to the default settings

    Hi Tmagic,

    No overclocking at all. Bios is the latest stable version and settings are all default.

    Must be a program issue. The errors are very vague. You have checked everything else. Are all the Windows Updates applied including all the optional updates?

    Hi Tmagic650,

    I have all the updates including optional ones.

    I took out all the memory yesterday and clean them and the slots. So far, no crashes at all, although I haven't been doing stuff that will cause high load to the system. But I have a feeling it is fixed :)

    Thanks for your help :)
