Windows 7: BSoD playing certain games, various error codes (usually 0x03b)

Do you really think this one file that keeps changing is what's causing my BSODs? Or just a sign of another problem? Or is it just because it's getting in the way of installing SP1?

This is a symptom of something much larger, I'm sure - file sizes shouldn't just change like that.

Maybe it'd be a good idea to run a WDO scan over the system - What is Windows Defender Offline?

Will do when I get a chance. One other interesting thing is that this is not the first time VirusTotal had seen that checksum. It had seen it at least once before I uploaded it.

I also found this thread here, which seems to have a similar problem (diskmgmt.chm being corrupted repeatedly). I've just skimmed the first page so far but maybe you want to take a look. http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...-ntoskrnl.html

Yes, well... That would be most unfortunate. However the symptoms he describes seem different from mine in almost every way except that he's having BSODs and that his diskmgmt.chm is being corrupted.

WDO came up clean as well, after a whopping 5 and a half hours.

Please try zipping the copy from the Help folder tree and attach it to your reponse - I'll see if I can see what's different about it.

Interesting, mine is that size now as well, after running WDO (Followed by a startup repair for some reason, I wasn't there to see what happened). I'll run some of the previous tests again later, shall I?
