Windows 7: Frequent various BSODs - memory or driver problem?

Frequent various BSODs - memory or driver problem?

Hi all,

I'm having BSODs with various error messages on a daily basis. I usually just run Chrome when it happens.

Could someone check if this is a driver issue or something else? I ran memory scans with no issue found, but I've read that using memory modules from different manufacturers can be an issue. Or is it the antivirus (Avira) that triggers it? I'm lost, please help! :)

Adding some little point here with what vistaking said.... the crash occurred during BitTorrent usage. NETIO.sys is the system's native network I/O subsystem. It may fail due to some various reasons, but in your case it is blocked by Zone Alarm TrueVector Device Driver. From the same crash dump:
fffff880`07d3faa8  fffff880`03ebd2a9Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\vsdatant.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for vsdatant.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for vsdatant.sys
Description here: Driver Reference Table - vsdatant.sys

I would suggest you to uninstall ZoneAlarm using Zone Alarm Clean Tool --> Attachment 264384
Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Please follow Golden's post before you start a scan with Malwarebytes:

Malwarebytes Update causes Massive false positives.
Also, there are some probability of some malware for which you need some special scans.

Scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
At the same time, your network driver, Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller driver seems to be very old.
