it happened again while i was doing virus scans (malwarebytes had found spyware.passwords.xgen in an executable that came in a .rar i downloaded, luckily i scanned and removed it without opening it)

this time i was able to start up normally

i thought acedrv09.sys would be gone after i uninstalled the software it came with, but evidently i'm wrong

i've deleted acedrv09.sys and acedrv09.dll from the system32/drivers and /sysWOW64 folders respectively into the recycle bin, let's see if this fixes it

could you remove the "fixed" tag for now, thanks

ok, it bluescreened and failed to start again when i started up after shutting down a minute or so earlier
prior to this (hours before i shut down) , my windows color somehow changed to another color, and everything started loading slowly for a while, i don't know if this is related

i used system restore from the recovery options menu, to the second-latest restore point (the latest was set at a windows update and didn't work), and when i logged in i found that my wallpaper was zoomed in.

"acedrv09.dll" and "acedrv09.sys" are back from the recycle bin

i'm attaching the new outputs from the BSOD Dump & System File Collection app and Perfmon.

while the file collection app was running, a window came up saying "refreshing system information"

edit: i also can't synchronize with time.nist.gov, don't know if it's related
edit:nvm, time sync had an error when i tried to update manually but now it's fine

i've copied (for backup) acedrv09.dll and acedrv09.sys into a folder in \My Documents, and put the originals into the recycle bin (don't like to perma-delete)

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).
Let it run as suggested...

i have some questions about the verifier

-could it potentially cause a crash that i wouldn't be able to get out of?

-how much stress can i put on the pc while running it? (can i play games, work in photoshop?)

-will process lasso affect anything at all?

thanks, sorry for taking so long to respond
