Windows 7: BSOD caused by torrents - WORKER_THREAD_RETURNED_AT_BAD_IRQL

03 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

It consistently happens whenever I try to download anything via torrent. I know that's what's causing it, because even if uTorrent is open for a few minutes, and just seeding some torrents, it will crash dump.

If it can go for a while without crashing, I can usually force it to by running any program that taxes the system at all, like playing a game or video.

Hello daiodine.

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite cause.

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck E1, {fffff800035c3560, 2, fffffa80130fa0d0, fffffa80130fa0d0}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!IopProcessWorkItem+0 )

Followup: MachineOwner
Usual causes:
Device driver
In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.
