Windows 7: BSOD while surfing the net. Did rootkit scan thing earlier.

BSOD while surfing the net. Did rootkit scan thing earlier.

Okay, so I just had a bit of a heart attack.

A few minutes ago, I was just browsing the net on reddit and I got a blue screen. There was a lot of text - I don't remember what it said. But this the error report when I restarted:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 109
BCP1: A3A039D89641250C
BCP2: B3B7465EE8BF5D5A
BCP3: FFFFF80000BD282C
BCP4: 0000000000000001

Now, about an hour ago, I ran Norton Power Eraser. However, when I did the rootkit scan, it didn't say I was at risk for anything - but it DID fix a problem I was having.

For several days, I had been unable to access certain google things. I couldn't open blogger, I had to access my school email through google (versus this way from the actual school site). When I tried to load certain google pages, I'd get "404 error found nginx."

I used the Norton Power Eraser recommendation from
this page where people were having a similar problem (although I had to access the page from another computer).

I ran the one scan option and it said everything was fine. I tried to go back to my email and now it's working.

And then about 30 minutes later, I get the BDOS.

Are these related?

What does my error report mean? Will this happen again?

I can't do a system restore, by the way, because of some other error that I've had for awhile (when I do a system restore, my internet stops working).

Edit: Okay, I read the BSOD thread instructions and I have attached the minidump file, the system health report, and the jcgriff2 folder thing.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hi. I assume you mean just copy the file itself. I couldn't open the file, it said I didn't have a program for it.

I didn't boot through safe mode to get this, though. Nothing happened from me copy/pasting it.

It came out to about 290 kb (compressed, around 29kb).

Edit: Updated original post with other reports.

Please follow JMH's suggestions to update, remove AVG, AND run malwarebytes

This crash was related to Kdcom.dll (part of the OS) but my concern is its date. It is dated Jan 12, 2012 while the rest of the OS is dated the correct July 13, 2009 (windows release date) making me suspect malware.

There are some fairly old drivers needing update.
