Windows 7: BSOD on PPTP VPN connect

05 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit
BSOD on PPTP VPN connect

Upgraded Win7 32-bit ThinkPad SL510 to Win7 64-bit (incl format). All newest drivers; Office 2010; Sunbelt Vipre Enterprise AV; etc. etc. Use several VPN connections to clients (MS PPTP, Cisco, OpenVPN) and suddenly (yes, they'd all worked) cannot get PPTP connection. Raked thru all drivers; removed OpenVPN (based on initial crash dump analyses pointing to their tap); disabled Cisco; recreated VPN connection profiles - all to no avail. Reset IP; detached Sunbelt firewall from adapter settings (BSOD happens both wireless and wired). Ready to punt and return to 32bit but hoping someone can see something I've missed. Still crashes from 'clean boot' (RACM does not run in safe mode); disabled AV etc.

Latest crash analysis as follows (minidump attached)...

A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught. This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.
Arg1: 0000000000000091, A driver switched stacks using a method that is not supported by
the operating system. The only supported way to extend a kernel
mode stack is by using KeExpandKernelStackAndCallout.
Arg2: 0000000000000002
Arg3: fffffa8004aac060

Dump file blames NETIO.sys - a Windows file associated with networking.
Windows files generally aren't to blame - so errors pointing to them need further investigation.

What settings did you use for Driver Verifier? Did you verify just the 3rd party drivers - or some other settings?

Without that detail, and from the single dump file - I'd have to wonder about the outdated psadd.sys driver - which is a part of the Lenovo Parties Service Access Device Driver (SMBIOS)

For a more detailed analysis, please provide this info:

Also, please update these:
- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!
- Please update these drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall them from your system. Reference links are included below.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Please feel free to post back about any drivers that you are having difficulty locating.
- Windows Update exceptions may be noted below for Windows drivers:

Don't forget to turn Driver Verifier off once we're done troubleshooting!

Thanks for your time and inputs. Other dumps pointed to SBFWIM.SYS - a firewall component from the AV installed. Uninstalling that (NDIS Filter attached to network adapters) solved the blue screens.

Thanks for letting us know! My next guess would've been your VPN software, followed by your wifi drivers.
I didn't see any evidence of the firewall driver causing problems, but should've suspected it simply because you're having networking issues.

Good luck!

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit

Yes, I'd stepped back removing eack of the VPN clients; reloaded WiFi drivers from both Lenovo and Intel; thought I'd eliminated the firewall issue by 'unchecking' the filter in both network adapters; but crashes didn't stop until it was actually uninstalled. Quite maddening. haven't seen this many blue screens since NT3. nothing like progress. ugh

thanks again

That's why we don't like to use Internet Security/Security Center applications. When they fail, they fail catastrophically - and they don't give any ready clues that they're to blame.

One time (at work) I actually took the time out to find the blame on one of these - and after 4 hours of work I managed to find one trace of an Internet Security program buried deep inside the stack of one of the system processes (using Process Explorer). That was the only clue - but it took care of the problem.

Also, disabling things usually isn't a good idea - because the device usually has to load all it's drivers before it can be disabled (if disabling through the Windows Device Manager). I prefer removing all software and then physically removing the device from the system. If you can't remove it from the system, then disable in the BIOS. If you can't do that, then you're stuck with disabling in Device Manager - but if it's software is uninstalled, it's more successful to disable an Unknown Device.

Good luck!
