*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for aswSnx.SYS
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for aswSnx.SYS
Probably caused by : Unknown_Image ( ANALYSIS_INCONCLUSIVE )
Usual causes:  Device driver, BIOS bug, hardware defect
Since you experiencing a Stop 0x101, to thoroughly analyze the BSOD, you will need to configure a Kernel Memory dump and then upload the file in a zipped folder to a file sharing service such as Skydrive or Dropbox. Make sure you upload the file to the Public folder of your account and then post the URL in your next post.

Daemon Tools uses a driver called sptd.sys, which is known to cause BSODs with Windows 7. It is recommend you remove this program, and use Windows own in-built features or ImgBurn.


Start Menu\Programs\IObit Malware Fighter
IOBit is another known cause for BSODs, and running two real time protection programs can cause serious problems and crashes with your system.


Start Menu\Programs\Advanced SystemCare 6
Windows 7 doesn't require any programs which make changes to the operating system and registry, these programs tend to cause problems by modifying and deleting files.
Windows is a closed source system. Developers of registry cleaners do not have the core code of Windows 7 and are not working on definitive information, but rather they are going on past knowledge and experience. Automatic cleaners will usually have to do some guesswork.

Modifying registry keys incorrectly can cause Windows instability, or make Windows unbootable. No registry cleaner is completely safe and the potential is ever present to cause more problems than they claim to fix.

Registry cleaners cannot distinguish between good and bad. If you run a registry cleaner, it will delete all those keys which are obsolete and sitting idle; but in reality, those keys may well be needed by some programs or windows at a later time.

Windows 7 is much more efficient at managing the registry than previous Windows versions. If you run any other registry cleaner and do not know precisely what you are doing, you will have problems down the road. There are no gains to be had from using a registry cleaner and the risk is great.
