BSOD: irql_not_less.... and memory_management

Problems are:


1-PFC.sys is from 2003 and really needs to be removed.

Padus ASPI Shell or Adobe Audition (most likely associated with an older CD/DVD burning program)

2-Stpd.sys a huge known cause

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

You can use MagicDisc as an alternative.

Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview


3-Memory. Run memtest to test yours

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.


Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

4- AVG remove and replace with Microsoft security essentials

Ok, I'll try to do it, but how can I remove this "PFC.sys" ?
Thanks a lot!

To remove pfc.sys, uninstall Padus or navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers, locate pfc.sys and rename it from .sys to .old. This will break the program pfc.sys is associated with.

Ok, thanks!
I've done memtest and it show me 18 errors. I'll have new ram today (my comp is new, I'll take ram from service), I'll do test again and do everything what zigzag3143 wrote.
@CarlTR6: I understand second part of Your post, but I don't understand what "Padus" mean. Could You help and explain?

Padus is the name of the software or the software manufacturer that pfc.sys is associated with.

Glad you found the problem with the RAM.
