Random BSODs, everytime caused by netio.sys

Good day

In last few weeks I got about 10-12 BSODs, all pointing to NETIO.SYS. It happening only while playing World of Tanks but totally randomly. Sometimes I can play for few days without it but yesterday 3 in hour. I tested everything - PC was running for 10 hours in OCT + Inter Burn test with no error, 4 hours of memtes - no error. Updated every driver to its newest verision aswell as OS and still happening. Temperatures are OK. In attachment I am posting what WinDbg showing from minidump.

Thank you for help.

Three issues.

1-asacpi.sys

Asacpi.sys

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

Scroll down to the utilities category, then scroll down to the "atk0110 driver for windowsxp/vista/windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).

Download and install it.

Go to c:\windows\system32\drivers to check and make sure that the asacpi.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (not before).

2-Old drivers needing update.

Code:
ASACPI.sys    3/27/2005 10:30:36 PM       
lirsgt.sys    5/17/2009 9:06:57 AM        
atksgt.sys    5/17/2009 9:36:34 AM        
LHidFilt.Sys    6/17/2009 12:49:39 PM        
LMouFilt.Sys    6/17/2009 12:49:43 PM
How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

3-Netio.sys. Usually when netio.sys is implicated it is actually the installed malware. In your case ESET. I would remove and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials at least to test.

Ad. 1/2: I have Rampage Formula ( probably Win indicates it wrong ) and thought downloaded every lastest drivers from ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download Rampage Formula but found that I didnt installed one utility - "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit"

Now I checked folder with drivers you mentoned and didnt found any older driver then 2009 - Asacpi.sys was updated when that utility was installed. Hope it will help - going to test it.

Ad. 3: I tried it when changing to ESS5 from ESS4 with completly removing from PC and it was still happening.

I will write a post if it falls again or if it doesnt fall for atleast 4-5 days.

Thank you for help.

I swear by them. If you continue to crash please upload the DMPS. Without them we are flying blind.

ALL three of these were Related to epfwwfp.sys ESET Personal Firewall driver. I would remove ESET and replace with MSE at least to test.

I am as surprised as you are (I use ESS 5.x). To have three point to it is unusual.
