BSOD playing GTA IV TBOGT

I get random BSODs from time to time usually by the same driver. The latest was just now and the previous on 19th of january.

I run windows 7 home premium 64bit on a 3 month old Dell xps 17.
Using BlueScreenView this is the error report I get for the latest BSOD crash:

Netio.sys is usually related to your malware application or malware itself.

Please download the free version of Malwarebytes.
Update it immediately.
Do a full system scan
Let us know the results at the end.

Malwarebytes : Download free malware, virus and spyware tools to get your computer back in shape!


Also what Anti-virus app are you using?

Other than the BHO it appears you are clean. That means it is McAffee itself.

McAffee is a frequent cause of BSOD's. I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST!

From a BSOD perspective MSE is fine and causes far fewer of them.

Personally I use something else because I want the combined malware/firewall
