Random Bluescreen, Error & Minidumps att

  1. I've got a PC that's been bluscreening randomly. The user claims it happens more often than it does, but I've only seen three occurances. Here is the even log from the latest:

    Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c0000047, parameter2 80521c5c, parameter3 b545c948, parameter4 00000000.

    Attached is a zip with all three of the minidumps.

    Can someone please help me figure out what's causing the problem?

    Your Minidumps all point to the same issue: Crypto.sys which belongs to Netgear VPN Client software.

    From what I have researched people have done one of twwo things:

    1. Uninstalled.

    2. Upgraded to a newer version.

    Would your PC happen to be a Dell?

    No, it's actually a Toshiba. The VPN Software is actually SafeNet SoftRemote 10.0.0 build 10 from Netscreen Technologies. I guess they share the same crypto.sys.

    Thanks for your input, I'll have to see if I can find another build of the VPN software.
