Windows 7: BSOD randomly with stop 0x000000E1

14 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
BSOD randomly with stop 0x000000E1


I have been getting a BSOD more and more frequently saying Worker thread returned bad at IRQL. The stops I'm getting are 0x000000e1 (0xFFFFF80003389560, 0x0000000000000002, 0xFFFFFA800BA64A70, 0xFFFFFA800BA64A70).I've looked online and found similar situations but nothing that seems to be working. I've also attached the SF Diagnostic tool info as requested.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I just got this computer and really don't want to get rid of it.

Please uninstall McAfee, it's a known cause to BSODs.

I note that you have MSE, suggest you to go through these:
Malwarebytes - The Free version
Good and Free system security combination.
McAfee Removal Tool - McAfee Uninstaller

Get the latest drivers for your graphic card (Uninstall older first):
Download AMD Catalyst Drivers 12.8 Vista 64 -
Driver	c:\windows\system32\drivers\atikmpag.sys (, 294.50 KB (301,568 bytes), 4/13/2011 3:17 PM)
Let us know the results
