    Your error is 0x8E: KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED and is defined as when a kernel mode program generated an exception which the error handler didn’t catch. These are nearly always hardware compatibility issues which sometimes means a driver issue.

    The driver cited is eamon.sys which is part of the NOD32 antivirus software.

    1. What version are you using? Their newer 3.0 has had issues especially when it first came out but they have been working on it. I run the 2.7 and that is very stable.

    2. However, 8E errors are usually hardware issues and since you are getting so many BSODs (it would halp if you could attach the most recent 5) I suggest running MemTest on your RAM for a minimum of 7 passes.

    * It would really be helpful if you could put your system specs in your oprofile.

    * Also, head over to -- the official Eset forums -- and tell them of your BSODs with eamon.sys. They are very helpful.
