Windows 7: BSOD with torrent, "Driver IRQL not less or Equal"

BSOD with torrent, "Driver IRQL not less or Equal"

Hello Together,

i have a BSOD when i use torrent (does not matter which type).
The main message in the BSOD is " "Driver IRQL not less or Equal""
I know this is a really common BSOD but still i have no idea how to fix it (also i am a noob with PC's)

Further on i am using an HP ProBook 6560b, which is my work Laptop, (all admin rights are on me)
the only problem which it brings is that i can not really change the security software (McAfee).

attached the SF diagnostic file.

Welcome to SevenForums.

There's not much we can do. You can go through these threads:Check this link: [FIX] uTorrent Crashes With BSOD In Windows 7 Enterprise 64-Bit With Driver Errors for a possible fix.

Also you could try to uninstall McAfee, update your network drivers to the latest and then reinstall McAfee afresh?
Make scans with the following:

-Kaspersky TDSSKiller-ESET online scannerPerform a System File Check:
  • Click on the start
  • Type CMD on Search
  • Left click and Run as Administrator
  • Type SFC /scannow

thanks for the quick reply, i read through the other posts and will try what is recommended there, also i will try the scans, etc.

My start-up is already minimized.

The first thing i tried was to disable "Teredo" which has my system running now for 1 hour without BSOD.
But i don't really understand what this "Teredo" is or does ?

I will give an update tonight after all the scans.
