Windows 7: BSOD after windows automatic updates error 0x000000d1

BSOD after windows automatic updates error 0x000000d1

Hello everyone,

I apologize I am somewhat of a newbie to this troubleshooting. I am getting BSOD everytime I boot up the computer. It will say configuring windows then crash to BSOD and say dumping physical memory. Code error is 0x000000d1. It says that Ndis.sys is involved. Top of the BSOD it says Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or something. it just continues this cycle of trying to boot up followed by crashing.

I can boot up in safe mode, but not safe mode with networking. So I'm not sure how to download the latest drivers without an internet connection.

I am running Windows 7 service pack 1 on a Dell inspiron 546.
I have tried booting in safe mode and running msconfig to only boot up microsoft programs, and i've disabled Mcafee security and firewall.

Please help!

Welcome to SevenForums.

Please uninstall McAfee, it's a frequent cause of BSOD-s. Use Microsoft Security Essentials instead. (TO TEST)Recommended antivirus program for Windows 7 based on stability compared to others:-
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

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