  1. Hi

    Sometimes my computer will randomly just go to BSOD and restarts itself. I have also tested the RAM and nothing seems wrong with it. Please can someone read the minidump I have attached and help me solve the problem. Thanks.

    The minidump is pointing to cmdguard.sys... I can't find anything on this. It may be a firewall file. What firewall are you using?

    I'm using Comodo firewall pro.

    Does the BSOD happen after the comp has been on for a longer time?

    Does it happen when running processor intensive programs usch as video games, anti-virus/anti-spyware scans?

    Have you checked your temp sensors? If not, download install Lavalys EVEREST Home Edition and monitor your temps.

    All the computers temps are fine, and the BSOD are completely random, sometimes they will happen while windows is starting from a cold boot, and other times they will happen when im just browsing the internet.

    If it is purely random, it's more likely to be hardware than software. Have you run a chkdsk?
