Irql_not_less_or_equal

  1. Hello! I hope you all are doing great today. I am here to solicit your help fixing my computer. I'm receiving BSOD's with the error message IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. It used to reboot immediately, but I've disabled auto-reboot.

    I also receive the Microsoft Windows has recovered from a serious error when booting up (although not every time I boot up).

    One interesting thing I've noticed is the fact that a lot of these IRQL things happen when I'm having problems with my on board wireless. (Like just a minute ago, I went to do repair connection, and it happened). One time it happened when switching from wireless to an ethernet connection. Other times it is common is when I am turning my computer back on from hibernation, and the wireless automatically reconnects.

    Here is the event information:

    Hi,

    All of the system crashes are at isproto.sys. Probably it is the software error at isproto.sys. Your windows is using a faulty version of ZoneAlarm and Norton AV. You had better upgrade ZoneAlarm and Norton AV as well.

    Your debug report
    Mini051106-01.dmp BugCheck 1000000A, {8b90004, ff, 0, 804ee02b}
    Probably caused by : isproto.sys ( isproto+3df9 )

    Mini051806-01.dmp BugCheck 1000000A, {c, 2, 0, 805231c0}
    Probably caused by : isproto.sys ( isproto+3df9 )

    Mini051906-01.dmp BugCheck 1000000A, {4, ff, 1, 804ee033}
    Probably caused by : isproto.sys ( isproto+3df9 )

    Would be best to just uninstall Norton and install AVG Free Edition, since Norton sucks and is a resource hog.
