Windows 7: Random BSOD's + Driver verifier startup crash

Last time I used driver verifier, my computer crashed without the creation of a bsod. I will try to run driver verifier again to see if bsod's are created this time.

Because my system has been so unstable the past few days, I'm performing a new install of windows. I will run driver verifier once windows is up and running again.

After letting driver verifier run for an hour, windows generated a bsod, I attached it to this post. After I created the error report, I experienced 3 other bsod's without the use of driver verifier. I'll try to create an error report of those crashes now.

Thanks in advance!

And here is the error report of 1 crash with driver verifier on, and 3 following crashes with driver verifier off.

These were all caused by memory_corruption caused by a driver.


None of these had driver verifier turned on. Did you follow the instructions carefully?

These 4 had 4 different causes. Azaureus, where.exe are prominent.

Try enabling verifer again.

You are right, sorry, I didn't follow the instructions correctly... I left it running for a few hours today but it did not produce a bsod. I will run it again tomorrow and hope it forces a bsod.

Darn, I obtained a couple of bsod's today. Unfortunately, after the last one my system was so messed up that I had to use system restore to get it to work again. And system restore was smart enough to delete the minidump files that were created...

I will try generating a few bsod's again tomorrow.

Today, my system endured a bsod's while I was using Driver Verifier. I have attached it to this post, I hope that this single bsod provides enough information to indicate the faulty driver. Thanks in advance.
