Windows 7: BSOD 5 minutes after computer start

BSOD 5 minutes after computer start

I have very annoying problem with BSOD showing up circa 5 minutes after starting the computer:
It happens only after the first start (sometimes also after the first restart) - I have been doing something for 5 minutes and suddenly - boom! - BSOD. Computer restarts and then it works perfectly... Only sometimes it crashes also after the restart.
When I turn it off and turn it on again, everything happens again...
All dump files and logs are attached in zip file.
Thank you in advance for any help!

Usual causes: Memory corruption, Hardware (memory in particular), Overclocking failure, Installing a faulty or mismatched hardware (especially memory) or a failure after installing it, 3rd party firewall, Device drivers, SCSI/network/BIOS updates needed, Improperly seated cards, Incompatible storage devices, Overclocking, Virus scanner, Backup tool, Bad motherboard, Missing Service Pack (source:

First of all, you set everything back to normal... get rid of overclocking.

Then, uninstall the following programs.
  • Comodo Internet Security
  • Comodo Firewall
  • ActiveState Comodo
As you already have Microsoft Security Essentials installed, you dont need anything more there.

Let us know the results.

Thank you for your reply!
I'm a little bit confused, because I have never made an overclocking... How could I get rid of that?
And Comodo Internet Security is a Firewall, while Microsoft Security Essentials is only an Antivirus - I'm afraid I need both of them...

Enter into the BIOS and set it to default.

For firewall, there is windows firewall inbulit. And with MSE, it gives a better security. You need to get rid of any third party firewall present, why ... the answer is in my earlier post.

I can suggest things only. Acceptance or rejection is totally on you. And it is your computer that is crashing ... so you will decide what is more valuable ... a crash free system, or a third party firewall, disabling the inbuilt alternative, knowing that the firewall is contributing in your crashes.

Decide ...
