    All five minidumps had the warning improper symbols were used and thus, for the most part, unreadable. However, DrvFltIP was cited in all and from everything I have been able to find out it is spyware. See this link:

    Question: What firewall are you using?

    Your firewall was also in the mix of the research that I have done and it might be a driver. I found an old archive I did last August with someone who had the same issues and at that time I said what I could find was it had something to do with a firewall. The problem is I can't find anything definitive.

    I would contact your firewall manufacturer's tech support and ask them if this driver is part of their software. If it is, tell them of your BSODs. If it is not then I would say you probably have an infection.

    Are you saying you have Ashampoo Firewall Pro but it is a pirated copy? Help us out here; I am just trying to get clarification, not accusing.

    If it is a pirated copy have you ever figured that therein might lie your issues? How can you update any of the latest versions with new drivers? And TechSpot frowns mightily on piracy.

    And as for us sending you from forum to forum there is a reason: You were infected the last time and there is a good chance you are infected this time.
