Windows 7: BSOD seconds after logging in

04 Oct 2012   #1

Win 7 Pro 64 bit
BSOD seconds after logging in

I can stare at the log in screen for 10 minutes, but as soon as I type in my password, about a minute later I get the BSOD. I was able to dump the file from Safe mode, hope it still gets you the information that is needed.

More info:
Problem started yesterday when I was viewing the web and it randomly shut down on me.

Your bug check and its usual causes
Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM),
Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS
Problematic software

  1. Start Menu\Programs\McAfee Public:Start Menu\Programs\McAfee Public
  2. Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite Public:Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite Public
Please uninstall McAfee, it's a known cause to BSoDs..So is Daemon Tools.
Uninstall both.
McAfee Removal Tool - McAfee Uninstaller
How to remove sptd.sys from system

I and many members on our forum recommend Microsoft security essentials with
a great combination of Malware Bytes.

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows
Malwarebytes - The Free version
Good and Free system security combination.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.

Your BSoD was caused by stdcfltn.sys

BugCheck 50, {fffff880903ede50, 1, fffffa80059c52e6, 5}

Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\stdcfltn.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for stdcfltn.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for stdcfltn.sys

Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : stdcfltn.sys ( stdcfltn+1d18 )
Suggest you to install the latest drivers for that software or uninstall the software completely to see if it eliminates the BSoD problems.

Win 7 Pro 64 bit

I was able to remove Daemon from "uninstall programs." I tried the Mcafee removal tool you linked me to but it says "uninstallation incomplete - Enterprise software detected.

I Googled and found this:
I tried this (8.7i) but get "The Windows Installer service could not be accessed" - I'm guessing because I'm in safe mode. I also booted into cmd line mode and ran the code again, but same error. How else can I attempt to remove Mcafee from Safe mode?

Thanks so much for your help, keep it coming. I feel like I/we are really close to solving this one (hopefully).

I'm afraid McAfee can't be uninstalled in Safe mode.
Do you have CCleaner? Try uninstalling with its uninstaller by going to the tools button

Win 7 Pro 64 bit

No go - same error message. I can uninstall other programs, but not Mcafee and another (Identity Finder)

I was able to boot into PC regularly by: MSconfig > Diagnostic Startup. However, Still same message about uninstalling. Also find I have no network and can't use Laptop FN keys.

In MSConfig, I'm able to stop the Mcafee from "Startup" tab, but when I attempt to disable it in "Services," the check boxes re appear after hitting apply

Any other ideas?

Sorry for the late response, different time zone.

Do you mean you're getting the same error about uninstalling in normal mode now? Or in safe mode?

After a combination of things, I finally got it:
Safe Mode:
diagnostic start > choose all services > turn off Mcafee from "Startup"
boot into normal mode:
Mcafee did not boot up, so i was able to finally remove the SOB!

Thanks for helping me on this one. too scared to restart the machine, I usually let it sleep anyways.

I was thinking of that method but believed you'd sort it on your own.

Thanks for posting back & happy computing
