BSOD For no apperent reason

Hi, This is my first time of posting/needing help so please forgive me if I get anything wrong.
This is my sons custom built gaming desktop, he has had a few BSOD issues and I can not figure it out. It manly seems to happen when he is on youtube (this just may be a coincidence).
Who crashed comes up with the following;- This was probably caused by the following module ntoskrnl.exe.
I have updated BIOS, Chipset, Graphics and every thing else I can think of, however it has happened yet again. I have used your SF Diagnostic tool and hopefully uploaded the zip file correctly.
Thanks for any help.

This software is a known cause of BSOD's. The windows 7 operating system does not require these registry cleaning software. They often tune-down rather than tune-up and can wreck the OS beyond repair. Microsoft have improved Windows 7 significantly and it is much better at organising and optimising itself than its predecessors. Check this, this and this thread for evidence.

If you feel the need to use a registry cleaning or optimisation software, most of us recommend the use of CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download but make sure you back up the registry before making letting ccleaner delete anything.10 Tips on How to Properly Maintain Your Computer

Daemon Tools/Alcohol %

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Tip   Tip
Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

Done all of what you suggested, no BSOD so far however computer froze and could do nothing with it. This has happened a few times as well, the common thing that has always being used when it either freezes or I get BSOD is skype, read on another forum that certain versions of skype caused freezes on some computers. Have updated to latest version and touch wood all seems well so far. Will keep informed.

It appears a error occurred within the Level 2 Cache, in such a case, I suggest running Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95, and then selecting the Small FFTs test, the test will need to least run for two hours.

Do you have any CPU temperature monitoring programs? If you don't then I would recommend:Also from the raw call stack for the thread (thanks to Arc), there's a few drivers which could be possible causes:

I want to add some points more with koolkat77 and x BlueRobot .... as it is one of the most extensive number of causes I have ever noticed.

Uninstall WinpkFilter LightWeight Filters.

Disable the webcam, at least for the time being till you are running without BSODs.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
  • Double click to open it.
  • Click this button only:
  • If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Get rid of intel rapid storage. First uninstall it from Control Panel > Programs and Features. Then Uninstall the driver from device manager.
  1. Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
  2. It will open the "computer management" window.
  3. Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
  4. Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  5. Select one Intel device item under it, right click, uninstall.
  6. Continue the process for all Intel items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
  7. Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate native system driver.
Intel XHCI drivers needs to be updated.
