22 Jul 2013   #11

Windows 7

They started happening again
Random freezing,no bsods(hence no minidumps).
Again I have attached all the files below.

The folder is completely empty, there should least be some other files included, I would suggest running the tool again.

Run Driver Verifier to scan for any corrupted drivers which may be causing problems, this program works by running various stress tests on drivers, in order to produce a BSOD which will locate the driver; run for least 24 hours:

I couldn't see any errors within the Event Log, I would suggest following the Driver Verifier suggestion.

Did what you told me to do, and now it has progressed into BSOD on every normal(non-safemode) bootup before even the login screen shows up(but the animation/splash screen does play out)

Works fine in safe mode with networking(I can login and everything..)
Below I have attached the BSOD minidumps, SFdiagnostic(grab all), sysinfo.txt(systeminfo.exe>C:\sysinfo.txt)

EDIT: I observed that on the actual blue screen the driver with the problem was sbw.sys...which is a driver included in the Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) software... so just to be safe I uninstalled DAP altogether.
Since then the system has started to boot up normally but I am still not sure whether there will be any more freezing(will update if it happens)
I have kept the driver verifier still running to make sure if anything else might be corrupt then that could also be dealt with.

Kindly check the files i have uploaded in this post to make sure whether there are any other drivers that might be causing this.
