BSOD - Sometimes NDIS.sys "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal"

Hi,

I have a problem with my desktop. Randomly when I am using the PC, it will blue screen with usually the following error. Most times displaying NDIS.SYS as the problem.

"driver_irql_not_less_or_equal"

He says that the wireless and the network card(cable) share the same IRQ and must be a conflict between them.
I do not have or used wireless on the desktop since a fresh reinstall of Windows 7 on new drives which are both 6 months old so, I'm it's not them causing the problem..

I have attached the 3 most recent minidumps, any help is much appreciated!

Uninstall COMODO.
Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Let us know th results.

Thanks for the quick reply! I have un-installed Comodo. Once restarted the PC again BSOD error from another file ending in .sys. It did not create a minidump however Will post one if it happens again

Well, uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.


Let us know the result now. And, next time post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.
