BugCheck D6, {fffff98006551018, 0, fffff88004c73b15, 0}

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for vrtaucbl.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for vrtaucbl.sys

Could not read faulting driver name
Probably caused by : portcls.sys ( portcls!GetMaxMapRegisters+5 )
Usual causes:  Device driver
This is an interesting bugcheck, since I have never analyzed one with this particular stop code, although it appears that a driver has referenced address space outside of it's current pool allocation. It appears that a Windows Port class driver (driver for port devices) was reading the referenced memory address (if I'm right).

Anyhow, the guilty driver is most likely, the Virtual Audio Cable driver, I would suggest finding an update from their support page, which can be found here:If that doesn't make a difference, then please remove the associated program with Revo Uninstaller Pro - Uninstall Software, Remove Programs easily, Forced Uninstall, Leftovers Uninstaller
