Did not see this particular occurrence of the ntfs.sys BSOD anywhere on the net. I have a 40 gb external storage drive which is plugged into the USB port. I don't like to leave it running - it gets warm. So when I finish accessing what I want from it, I just pull the USB plug. BAM - it goes to the ntfs.sys BSOD. Turn off the PC, restarts with no problem. Why is it doing that? Recently I was getting a spontaneous shutdown to the BSOD with idechndr being the culprit (from the intel application accelerator) - first I just moved it and couldn't boot up... paying someone to access my hard drive and restore the driver, it booted up again. Then I just uninstalled the IAA .. that worked. But, now this new occurence of the BSOD. Don't know if there is a connectin or not.
