Windows 7: Multiple issues and system crashing

12 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 7 Pro 64bit

Ok here it is UppIT - Free File Sharing -

If this helps , every time I run Ad-Aware program it gets about 15 minutes into the scan and gives the blue screen about the bad kernel and closes.

Ad-aware was directly blamed as the probable cause of that BSOD; please remove it completely.

Other things to do:

Remove Symantec according to these removal instructions: Norton Product Support | Installation and Uninstall

Replace it with MSE:

Install Service Pack 1: Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Graphics drivers are one thing that are especially prone to causing problems if they have compatibility issues. I see you are using 2006 nVidia drivers, which is a recipe for problems in Windows 7. Install these updated ones: NVIDIA DRIVERS 266.58 WHQL
nvlddmkm.sys            Tue Oct 10 01:44:34 2006 (452B3342)
If that doesn't do the trick for you, turn on Driver Verifier again, and upload a new jcgriff2 report.

For now, you can turn off Driver Verifier.

Since I was having issues with mt graphics card I replaced it yesterday to see if this would fix it. Installed the latest Driver. Installed the New Windows 7 Service pack. Removed Ad-aware and Spy-Bot software. Still crashing. Here is the new reports.

There is no MiniDump files.
Navigate to C:\Windows and find the MEMORY.DMP file. Upload it on a third-party uploader site (since the file size is huge) - I prefer MediaFire/Uppit. These two uploader sites do not have to wait for unregistered users.

I can't find the dump file this time. I had one before that I uploaded. Is it in a folder? Maybe I needto to run the driver verifier again. I am not getting any blue screen. Just frozen up. I ranthe command sfc/scannow and it didn't find anything. System freezes up often when using Windows Media Center.

Dean - no full dump file exists; see the !_kernel_dump_list.txt file.

I see the last crash that was recorded was not a true BSOD, but rather a Kernel Power 41 event:
  Log Name: System
  Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
  Date: 2011-03-13T10:17:27.859
  Event ID: 41
  Task: N/A
  Level: Critical
  Opcode: Info
  Keyword: N/A
  User: S-1-5-18
  Computer: Mark-PC
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
I suspect we are looking at a hardware issue here, but first, I notice the BIOS is 5 years old:
BIOS Version/Date    Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG, 8/11/2005
I couldn't find the BIOS for your board, what is the model of your computer? If you can find an updated BIOS, please flash it.

Onto the hardware tests...

What is the make/model of your PSU?

Run the three Prime95 tests:

Run Memtest86: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Seems Lavasoft's Ad-Aware is causing the issue. I had no crashes/freezes tonight. Then I reinstalled Ad-Aware and turned on the driver verifier. Crash. I wish I could still use it but its conflicting with something on my system.

AMD Athlon 64 3800 2.41 ghz
3 GB ram
NVIDIA GeForce GT220 Graphics card 1024 MB DDR2

I removed it and it was running fine. Then after I reinstalled it, the system crashed shortly after. But I would like to know why its causing the conflict because I like the program. Removing programs until the computer runs is not the solution I am after.

Recently my system is crashing multiple times a session.
I wanted to blame my fairly aggressive overclock for the crashes but having slowly back it down and while watching temps which were always within reason, I've now set everything to system defaults and the crashing has continued.
