Windows 7: 0xF7 BSOD in 3 minutes

0xF7 BSOD in 3 minutes

I can bring up the computer from being off or restarted and I can just let the computer set inactive or actually try to do something. Whichever I chose, in approxiately 3 minutes, I get the classic: 0xF7 BSOD

This machine is a CAD workstation. It isn't used to play games, search for porn, or chatting. Just design.

The only odd-ball peripheral is a 3D printer using an Arduino driver. It has been used for about a year with no problems. I did un-install the driver and disconnect the printer, but it didn't make any difference.

Can somebody help me find the guilty driver and how to fix it? I am desperate.

Thank you.

All your BSODs seem to be caused by mctkmd64.sys: Most likely belongs to a Magic Control Technology UVTP100 USB to VGA adapter.

Check for updates on its driver. If not Please remove the software and drivers. Use Revo to do that.

download and install Revo Uninstaller.
  • Opt for "Advanced Mode" and uninstall the software (also delete the leftover registry entries).

AVG contributes in BSODs. Use Microsoft Security Essentials & the Free version of Malwarebytes, update and make full scans separately:

Do not start the trial version of MalwareBytes

A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer.  This overrun could potentially
allow a malicious user to gain control of this machine.
A driver overran a stack-based buffer (or local variable) in a way that would
have overwritten the function's return address and jumped back to an arbitrary
address when the function returned.  This is the classic "buffer overrun"
hacking attack and the system has been brought down to prevent a malicious user
from gaining complete control of it.
Do a kb to get a stack backtrace -- the last routine on the stack before the
buffer overrun handlers and bugcheck call is the one that overran its local
