Windows 7: BSOD using firefox, 0x0000003b

BSOD using firefox, 0x0000003b

Hi, I am new on this forums, my friend told me to try here since I had no hope for my blue screen problems

I never had blue screens before on my win 7, and I use it for 3 years, even on this pc after I upgraded my VGA, I never had problems, then I had a virus problems 2 months ago and I decided to format my computer, and one of my HD, the 500gb one, I split to 2 partitions, making a 45gb one for windows, and the other for installed games only, thats about 420gb
I noticed that before format, and even when I formatted this before, always had a 100mb partition for boot, system health etc, and this time I got that partition deleted and made everything on the same 45gb part.
Don't know if that changes anything

Another thing to say is that, I am having artifact issues with my screen, I just got this new vga 5-6 months ago, and I can play games for hours, heavy games like Battlefield 3 on ultra, and never had any problem with artifact or errors while playing any other games tho. My artifacts only happens when watching movies, or when doing nothing but looking into a picture or at my desktop, never when in games, they never had lead me to a blue screen also.

Today and yesterday it happened the same thing, I got a BSOD while using Firefox (just organizing bookmarks from a folder to another in firefox), while downloading something from Firefox, and extracting files from zips, like mods for games etc...

also, I dont have the .dmp from the other 5 blue screens I had this month, just the last one, but its always related to ntoskrnl.exe, every single bsod have this ntoskrnl.exe on it with a different code.

the today one was SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

bug code: 0x0000003b
caused by driver: win32k.sys
caused by address: win32k.sys+c6373
crash address: ntoskrnl.exe+6f840

parameters
00000000`c0000005
fffff960`000d6373
fffff880`04d55070
00000000`00000000


usually the "caused by driver" and "by address" info, it is the ntoskrnl.exe, or the win32k. sys like the last one.

It appears that this Install of windows is counterfeit, The best course of action is to purchase a proper copy of windows from a reputable place like newegg or tiger direct, format your drive and re-install with the legal copy of windows.

sorry, but I don't think the windows version I use would cause this issue, since I've been using the same copy for last 3 years, and had this computer formated about 4 or 5 times, we have about 5 computers at home, so we just use a copy from a friend's assembler, and this is the first problem related to blue screen, well I was actually just asking for help, but thanks anyway

No you don't seem to understand we don't support counterfeit copies of windows, which yours is.The Product ID matches a Dell while the machine its self is a custom build, the only way this is possible is through a hackers exploit making the actual behavior of the operating system unpredictable as the exploits used leave the OS open to numerous security and stability problems.
