BSOD when playing Dota 2

I was playing dota 2 while talking with my friend on skype. Nothing out of the ordinary as I had done that several times before. I launched the game using Razer Game Booster. Yesterday I also used ccleaner to clean registries, and I also uninstalled ~60 GB of games and programs, but didn't touch any files relating to steam(the program that hosts dota 2) or dota 2

Also I couldn't get a dxdiag dump via the SF diagnostic tool because of some error.

Ok had a look through your files a couple of things of note:

First please uninstall alchohol 120% this program uses a driver that is known to cause BSODs. Once it is uninstalled please download and run this tool:

DuplexSecure - Downloads

next I notice that you have both McAfee and AVG installed, having multiple AV programs can cause some serious problems uninstall one or the other using their respective uninstall tools:

AVG Removal tool

McAfee removal Tool


Last I notice your Bios is rather old I would check the computer s manufacturers website for updates if there are any.

Allright, thanks!
I'll remove McAfee and uninstall Alcohol 120%, hope this fixes it

Uninstalled the programs and tried running the same game again and it worked without problems! Hope it stays this way!

Thanks again
