Windows 7: BSOD ntoskrnl.exe, fwpkclnt.sys, avnetflt.sys

20 Nov 2013   #1

Windows 7 Pro x64
BSOD ntoskrnl.exe, fwpkclnt.sys, avnetflt.sys

Just wondering if anyone can help me. I've done a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro after upgrading to Windows 8 and disliking it. I've gotten several BSOD lately and I've since then downloaded BlueScreenView and viewed my dump files. I keep seeing "avnetflt.sys", "fwpkclnt.sys" & "ntoskrnl.exe" and under "Bug Check String" is says BAD_POOL_CALLER. Can anyone assist me on this and let me know what these issues are? Thanks.

Please follow - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

BlueScreenView is a pretty useless program in my opinion, it gives a Stop Code, a Probably Caused Line and maybe a call stack?

If you want to have a look at the dump files yourself, even for curosity, then WinDbg is the proper tool to use - WinDBG: The very basics

BugCheck C2, {7, 109b, 4030010, fffffa8005a8faa0}

Probably caused by : avnetflt.sys ( avnetflt+76fa )
The bugcheck indicates that a driver has double freed a pool allocation.

3: kd> !pooltag Pctx
Pooltag Pctx not found in pooltag.txt
The important aspect is the Free, this indicates that the pool allocation has already been freed, and supports the assumption made by WinDbg that the pool allocation was freed twice. The owner of the pool allocation, or more specifically the Pool Tag isn't documented within PoolTag.txt, which (after installing WinDbg) can be found in this directory:

The driver causing the problem seems to be related to your Avira Security Suite or program, please check for a updated version of the program, or remove the program completely with the Avira Removal Tool, and then use these free alternatives:

Install and perform full scans with:

Remember to install the free version of Malwarebytes not the free trail; untick the free trial box during installation. MSE is the most lightweight and compatible with the Windows 7 operating system

Your Ralink RT2860 series Wireless LAN Card (you may have a different manufacturer) seems to be rather outdated, please update the driver from here MediaTek - Downloads Windows or check your motherboard/model support page.

We can also view the memory contents of the pool allocation, but these seem to be empty, I'm not sure if it's because the pool allocation was freed and therefore will contain no data, or that this file is a Minidump and this information wasn't retained.
