Windows 7: Laptop is freezing all of a sudden

Thanks, Captain Jack.

Follow Captains Jack's advice also. Driver Verifier will cause a BSOD when it in encounters a faulty driver. Be sure to upload any dump files generated by Driver Verifier.

Also please uninstall McAfee using this tool > Info > Tool McAfee is know to cause BSOD on some Win 7 systems. Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials while you are troubleshooting and make sure Windows Firewall is turned on. After you get your system stable, you can try McAfee again if you like; but I do not recommend it.

Here is some help with your drivers:

adfs.SYS - Adobe Drive file system driver system driver file. http://www.adobe.com Update this driver or the Adobe software. If you update the software, uninstall the old software first.

I'm sorry guys, but this is just driving me mad.

I can barely update anything, let alone uninstall anything because it just keeps crashing and a BSOD keeps popping up. I'm so angry at this.

Is there any way at all I can temporarily keep it from causing a BSOD so I have enough time to update everything? Otherwise it's impossible

Is Driver Verifier enabled? If so turn it off.

Thanks for the Update. I'm not an expert in Network so i can't really replay that thread. I'm sure one of our network expert will look into it.
