Occasional BSOD after starting up windows, Bug check code 0x0000004a

Every once and a while after starting up windows I will receive a BSOD, this did start happening after I started overclocking my computer, although I have since returned my bios settings completely back to stock yet I still am receiving a BSOD, so maybe it was just coincidental and something else is going awry.

After I get a BSOD I can simply reboot my computer and it will work fine, I've attached the zip from the SF tools to help diagnose my problem.

Thank you very much for your time, I truly appreciate it.

Welcome to SF wrath66 .

The same bugchecks point to the same culprit, that being BitDefender.
Code:
lmvm bdfwfpf
Browse full module list
start             end                 module name
fffff880`02d68000 fffff880`02d90000   bdfwfpf  T (no symbols)           
    Loaded symbol image file: bdfwfpf.sys
    Image path: \??\C:\Program Files\Common Files\Bitdefender\Bitdefender Firewall\bdfwfpf.sys
    Image name: bdfwfpf.sys
    Browse all global symbols  functions  data
    Timestamp:        Mon Nov 14 19:16:17 2011
Code:
bdfwfpf c:\program files\common files\bitdefender\bitdefender firewall\bdfwfpf.sys
Please remove it completely.
You can use Microsoft Security Essentials as an alternative.

Please clear up your startup by following this tutorial.
Can you explain why Windows is some what half-installed?
Code:
SM Bus Controller    The drivers for this device are not installed.
Marvell 91xx Config ATA Device    drivers for this device are not installed.
Bluetooth Peripheral Device    for this device are not installed.
ArcCtrl    This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.

I would rather keep using bitdefender since I did pay for it and I have a year left, and I'd rather not use MSE since it performs so poorly. I will unistall it and perform a clean install of the most recent version to see if that resolves it. And if it doesn't it shouldn't cause any damage to my computer correct? Just an inconvenience?

The various bluetooth devices I'm not sure why I'm getting those, other than I do have built in bluetooth on my motherboard, which works fine with my phone. I didn't install the Marvell controller drivers since I wasn't planning on running my hard drives/SSDs in RAID, and the Marvell controller is supposed to cause problems with my specific board. IpodDrv seems to be a reference to a left over from Doubletwist player which was a program I was using to automatically sync music with my phone before Google Play Music came out with cloud support.


Thank you very much, is there a rep system on this forum?

P.S. after reading bitdefenders support forum it seems the BSOD is linked to ASUS AI suite, a program for making adjustments to my bios from within windows, so I'm going to try and uninstalling that.

Please do update the software and report back which ever way things turn out .

Yes and no.
Most of the time Windows does a good job of protecting your data and the system files by using BSOD's
to completely halt any illegal operation (illegal in terms of the Windows Kernel) but BSOD's can cause
file corruption which can eventually lead to an unbootable OS,
which in my book is more than an inconvenience.

[escalated] Bsod With Vsserv.exe - Bitdefender Forum


I did recently install AI suite II since I was starting to overclock my computer since it is now watercooled, and I thought it would be nice to be able to make changes from windows instead of having to reboot a bunch of times, so it would make sense since that's a new variable that I added and I started getting results that I didn't like (BSODs) at around the same time.

Thanks .

The BSOD's of the overclock may just be the unstable OC and not a connection
between AI suite and BD, with that said, AI suite is a know BSOD cause in general.

Post back with your findings .

Like I said in my original post, I'm running at completely stock settings right now, but I was still getting BSOD which is when I sought out a forum for some help on the issue. I will post back if I get anymore BSOD, or after a decent amount of time, I'm thinking I will set a reminder on my phone to post back in a month if I don't get any more.
