Windows 7: BSOD At Random

03 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultiimate 32bit
BSOD At Random

Evening all, & thank you in advance.

I'm doing this on behalf of a friend of mine. He says he's constantly getting BSODs. When asked what he is doing when he gets them, he says "different things at different times."

Hopefully it's just a faulty driver.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86 OEM
System is less than 6 months old
OS was installed with the unit.

Again, thank you for any insight you can give me on this.

Windows 8.1 x64

I looked at the dumps going back to 4/19 (and there are a considerable number), and most all of them appear to be caused by code running through the Intrustion Detection filter of AVG:
0: kd> lmvm AVGIDSFilter
start    end        module name
ae10e000 ae118000   AVGIDSFilter T (no symbols)           
    Loaded symbol image file: AVGIDSFilter.Sys
    Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\AVGIDSFilter.Sys
    Image name: AVGIDSFilter.Sys

So, either his machine really is infected with something (not likely but should be checked offline using a bootable scan CD), or AVG is busted on that machine.
