Windows 7: Repeated BSOD DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Repeated BSOD DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I've been getting these constant blue screens. Looking in BlueScreenView, every crash for the last couple of months seems to be related to afd.sys and ntoskrnl.exe.

I have tested each memory stick with memtest, and changed slots and reseated them. I have updated the drivers for my graphics card and NIC.

See dump info attached. I noticed it says in there that it doesn't see antivirus installed, but I'm using AdAware free. Thanks in advance for your help.

Since your update to SP-1 these crashes were Related to Softperfect Bandwidth Monitoring and Usage Reporting tool. Note: Located in \%Program Files%\NetWorx\

I would remove it.

Thanks, I'll try that. Pity, because Networx has been a handy tool.

Do you mind if I ask where you found that info? (Might as well try to learn something while I'm at it.)

Thanks, Zigzag!

Looks like that solved it. Removed Networx 6 days ago, no blue screens since. Sweet.
