Windows 7: BSOD ntoskml.exe+70740 IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Thanks for the clarification. Everyone makes mistakes or doesn't make that 110% effort on every post as you well know. When I was training you it was one of the most important things I tried to impart. In this case it was my turn. That is what teamwork is all about. When we all work together we catch each others mistakes, get other views, and generally gain from the experience. We have all found flaws in others work and worked quietly in the background to correct them. It is only when we dont, that we (and the op) lose out.

Hi All,

Many thanks for all your help so far and for your patience whilst I have been away/offline this week.

Jonathan_King: I have now been able to take a closer look at your recommendations and as soon I get my hands on the Dell E4200 laptop again I will get these updates installed. I am pleased to report there has been no BSOD the last 6 days.

I do have a question ref Norton 2011 – was Norton actually reported to cause some of these troubles??? In general I have only ever had success with NIS 2009/2010 on about 20-odd systems. However the Norton 2011 is my first install – this was installed on this E4200 12 days ago ( 07/09/2010 ) after I used the Norton uninstall to remove Norton 2010. I understand/feel that NIS in general offer overall better protection + features – no?

I was very surprised to see the outdated:

-as I only installed LogMeIn Free in May 2010 direct from their website?!

I had this back from LogMeIn support:

From the Toolkit
  1. On the host computer, click on the LogMeIn icon in the System Tray.
  2. Click on Open LogMeIn.
  3. Click on the About tab.
  4. Click on Check for Updates.
From the MSI package

If the Toolkit method fails, you can always download and update via the LogMeIn MSI package.
  1. Download and save the MSI package from
  2. Run the file once the download completes.
  3. Choose the Upgrade option from within the installer wizard.
Follow the steps and complete the upgrade install.

I usually DO run the LogMeIn updates?! However will double-check this when I next have LogMeIn access to the Dell E4200 laptop.

On another note… I am getting a new laptop for myself next week ( Lenovo, SSD, Win 7 / MS Office 2010 64bit ) and no doubt will have one or two questions – so what is the netiquette of this Forum – should I just Edit the System Spec to my new details if/when I need to submit a post based on my new laptop?

Thanks and best wishes
