BSOD when opening pictures or saving in word/excel

Hi there, I have been suffering from a repeating crash whenever I save word or excel files or open up pictures. It is the same error popping up over and over again, I ran the mem test 6 times, 5 regular and 1 extended everything checks out. BIOS on mobo has been updated from website, I have no idea what it could be. Please any help is greatly apreciated. Otherwise the computer is working perfectly, no crashes doing anything else. I am running the 64 bit version of windows 7 and have an asus p6t deluxe v2 motherboard.

your error shows as APC_INDEX_MISMATCH bugcheck 1 which is a rare one ?

this is likely to be a bad driver which if allowed to run could damage your system software environment so the bsod is saving you

do you have any external video devices or specific video\audio equipment with installed software ?

this is an old driver and needs replacing

this appears to be the process RawDisk Driver. Allows write-access to raw disk sectors for user mode applications in Windows 2000, belongs to the software ElRawDisk by EldoS Corporation ??

which memtest did you run ?

what's your AV and any third party firewall ?

I ran the windows mem test and my firewall and antivirus are both from iolo, its system mechanic professional.

As to what you found, I have an old cd drive, could that be the problem?


EDIT: I deleted elrawdysk.sys from the registry and system files. I looked around and it looks like it could be my external hard drive from western digital. My external harddrive is a MyBook Essential 2.0. I hope this fixed the problem

Thank you very much for the help ickymay, I have spent a good 3 hours going through family pictures and saving documents and I no longer get any problems whatsoever. I still can't believe the cause of the problem was system mechanic professional, SM uses the old ElRawDsk.sys for hard drive defrag and I also think for the repairs and this is apparently not compatible with windows 7.
