Windows 7: Multiple BSODs, no common activity

Well, thanks for the attempt, but Comodo is not a problem, has never been a problem, and I'm not going to downgrade to an inferior firewall.
Maybe someone else will pick up the thread or I'll figure something out on my own, but I 'm not going to remove one of the best firewalls around and install that sieve known as Windows Firewall that doesn't even bother checking outgoing programs.

It's ok. If you find the issue, let us know.

I have asked the other people to have a look and post their opinions on your issue. Hopefully they will come soon.

My beloved and respected friends, Quantum Physics is here to have some help with a serious issue. Please help him, if you can suggest him some alternatives. I failed to satisfy him, that's my bad luck; but that does not necessarily mean that what I am saying is the final word.

I posted a lot, achieved almost all the awards of this board, all is true. But, if it is something I overlooked, or I sticked at a particular point like a stubborn, it is an injustice to him, like all of us, he is also a member of our board, may be a new one compared with us. So it is our responsibility to help him the best possible.

Please dont ask him to take my suggestions, suggest something that will work for him.

As my brain is captured at the Comodo point, I may have overlooked something. If you see it from a fresh perspective, something new must come out.

All the best to you all, and cheers!

I cannot count the number of times since Windows 7 release that removing Comod has resolved performance issues. It along with MucAfee are chronic offenders around here.

If an expert BSOD analysis isn't enough for you then work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 to see if anything has been missed.

I agree with Arc's analyses.
The only way you are going to know for sure if Comodo is causing problems for you is to un-install it for testing purposes.
We have seen it cause issues before.
It's your system and your choice.

So I guess it means nothing to you that verifier.exe ran on those drivers and reported them as being fine?
I guess your anecdotal evidence is the only thing that matters while CNET, TechRepublic, Windows Secrets, Gizmodo, etc., etc., etc., having rated Comodo CIS the highest for features AND stability means nothing? Oh, and my own anecdotal evidence of having 8 computers in my home that use it plus another 20 or so that I've installed it on for family and friends?

So does this mean anything to you? I compared the early output from the SF diagnostic tool when I was crashing every few minutes to the output when I have verifier running...and there was one difference in the drivers.txt file. I removed that driver, rebooted without verifier, and no crashes in over 24 hours. Oh, and COMODO CIS is running, in case you want to know.

So, instead of foolishly running a program down with absolutely no evidence that it's causing any problems, maybe you guys should go back to some of those other cases and try to figure out what the real cause of the problem was...you know, the problem that was taking Comodo down in the first place that caused the eventual total crash.

Arc, thank you for the help. You got me poking around in those output files and that's what led me to finding that driver.

Please cite the driver for our purposes so that we may check the other cases as you so stated to insure that this driver was not the cause of these crashes.

It was
FreshIO.sys
part of the FreshDiagnose program from Fresh Devices (a system diagnostic tool that I'd used for years but won't anymore both because of the crashes and the SF diagnostic tool beats it in every way imaginable).
