Windows 7: Random System Crashes

24 Sep 2012   #11

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Uncheck ALL except for:
ccleaner    Piriform Ltd    "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner64.exe" /AUTO
MSC    Microsoft Corporation    
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe" -hide -runkey 

You have just told Win 7 to not run unchecked programs at start up time.

You have not disabled the programs. They will be run when needed.

WIN = key with the Microsoft logo on top
After the REBOOT is finished, then:
Use DISABLE button to disable ALL except for:
CCleanerSkipUAC    Piriform Ltd    "C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe" $(Arg0
Close CCleaner.


You have not disabled any programs. You have disabled the scheduled running.
Later, after your system is running smoothly, you may reenable desired programs.
After the REBOOT is finished, then:

  Bonjour    Apple Inc.    6/17/2012    2.00 MB
µTorrent        7
/15/2012        3.2.0 

There are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs on your computer.
As long as you are using any form of P2P networking to download files, you can anticipate malware infestations.

References citing the risk of using P2P programs:

I strongly recommend that you uninstall:


Windows Defender Offline
· performs an offline scan of an infected PC to remove viruses, rootkits and other advanced malware.
· is a free standalone, bootable malware and virus remover from Microsoft.

Download Windows Defender Offline (about 785 kB)
You will have the choice of downloading the 32bit version (x86) or the 64 bit version (x64).
The link will help you determine whether you are running a 32 bit version or 64 bit version of Windows

NOTE!! You can download and prepare a 32 bit version using a 64 bit version of Windows
NOTE!! You can download and prepare a 64 bit version using a 32bit version of Windows.

You run the 32 bit version on a 32 bit version of Windows.
You run the 64 bit version on a 64 bit version of Windows.

The 32 bit download file name is: mssstool32.exe
The 64 bit download file name is: mssstool64.exe

For the curious, this program was originally name Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper.

· Requires an Internet Connection.
· Insert 512 mB or larger USB stick into a usb port.
· Run the downloaded program--mssstool64.exe or mssstool32.exe
· NEXT button
· Choose the option On a USB flash drive that is not password protected
· NEXT button
· NEXT button
The install program will:
· format the usb stick using the NTFS format.
· download less than 230 mB.
· name the USB stick WDO_Media32 or WDO_Media64
· use less than 300 mB.

How to UPDATE the Windows Defender Offline USB stick:
· reinsert the usb stick
· run the installation program, mssstool64.exe or mssstool32.exe, again.
· the update will download less than 65 mB.

Since the malware database is sometimes updated several times in a day, always update before running.

Bootup your computer from the USB stick
Windows Defender Offline will automatically perform a quick scan.
After the quick scan finishes, Choose Full Scan
Select all of your drives

The initial, full scan can easily take several hours, but
Remember, your computer is being very thoroughly checked for all types of malware.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64

Problem has not returned. Strange.
I had her test all day without a single bsod.
The only thing I did was to reinstall the Dell version of the Broadcom network adapter driver from her profile.
The same one I had installed on my profile to fix the same issue.
The same driver should apply to all profiles, at least that's what I thought.
No other software or drivers were updated.
Every other driver is the latest according to Windows.
So I'll mark this resolved for now.
