Windows 7: Random BSOD ntoskrnl.exe many bug codes

Random BSOD ntoskrnl.exe many bug codes

I recently had to re-image my PC due to a virus and have been in the process of reinstalling and updating everything. Partway through I started getting many BSODs. Sometimes it will happen before windows finishes loading everything and sometimes it will be stable for quite a while before failing. I believe the computer may have lost power during a windows update shortly before the BSODs started happening but I am not sure. I have checked the dumps with bluescreenView and it always seems to point to ntoskrnl.exe (sometimes it points to a second file as well but that one is always implicated). I have also tried removing my RAM sticks one at a time and still have the same problems. I have included the dump files and am happy to try anything you recommend. PLEASE HELP!

Welcome to SevenForums.

Bug Check 1E and McAfee is common.
Start Menu\Programs\McAfee	Public:Start Menu\Programs\McAfee	Public
Start with removing McAfee, it's a frequent cause of BSOD crashes, consider uninstalling it with the McAfee Removal Tool and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials at least 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.

Run these tools and delete anything they may find:ESET online scanner:
Run the System File Checker that scans the of all protected Windows 7 system files and replaces incorrect corrupted, changed/modified, or damaged versions with the correct versions if possible:
  • Click on the
  • Type CMD on Search
  • Left click and Run as Administrator
  • Type SFC /scannow
Full tutorial here:Run Disk Check on your hard disk for file system errors and bad sectors on it:Free up the start-up, nothing except the antivirus is usually needed.Let us know the results.

Unfortunately, my employer requires McAfee or else I can't connect to the network so removing it isn't an option. Also, though 1E was the most common I had a number of other bug check error codes in the dumps that I uploaded as well, do any of those point to anything?

I will try the other steps you recommended and report back but in the meantime I would be curious to know if there are any other potential causes or commonalities present in the ~20 dumps I uploaded.

I see.

Well yes, STOP 1E and STOP A were. Some dump files do not provide anything specific except the codes nor any accurate probably caused by: stuff so we just dump those dumps sometimes making certain tests from their "usual causes" helps as well.

Anyway, here's some info I've collected from few of the dumps:

There's something going on with McAfee from the info from the dump on No. 2. Probably uninstalling and reinstalling McAfee afresh may help. But do make full scan with Malware bytes [Free] and TDSKiller & ESET.
*After reinstalling McAfee, update all networking drivers from the manufacturers website.
Reinstall the drivers for NVIDIA following this way: Click on the Start ► Control Panel ► Programs ► Uninstall a program ► Uninstall everything related to; NVIDIA and reboot the system. Delete the remaining drivers/older drivers using Driver Fusion/Sweeper. Download this version of the driver: Download NVIDIA Forceware 306.23 WHQL Vista 64 -

Then you can do the steps mentioned in my first post (apart from uninstalling mcafee).
  1. SFC Scan
  2. Malware/TDS/ESET
  3. Disk Check
  4. Freeing up start-up
Hope this helps in resolving the issue. Good luck!

Removing McAfee enterprise has proven to be rather difficult but I have disabled it from starting up and turned off all non-windows services in MSConfig. I have also run SFC and diskcheck and haven't found anything significant. With the antivirus startup and most services disabled I seem to be running mostly stable while using it all day but when I leave my PC overnight I have come back and found that it had crashed and rebooted 2 out of the last 3 times. I have attached the latests dump files and was wondering if you might be able to pinpoint what else seems to be causing the issue.

Thanks for your time,

I've requested for more help on your thread, we'll have to wait for a reply.

In that between you can test the RAM. Although I don't think the problem is hardware related.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.
