Windows 7: BSOD occurring randomly, often while Chrome/MS Office in use.

BSOD occurring randomly, often while Chrome/MS Office in use.

Hi there.

I've recently been getting the famed BSOD, and I'm noticing that it occurs at very random times. I use Microsoft office(excel in particular) quite extensively and almost always have Google docs (spreadsheets), Youtube, Facebook and Gmail open in my Chrome browser, although I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the crashes. I don't have any external devices attached to the computer apart from a Razer mouse.

I usually encounter BSOD maybe once a day, twice on a bad one.
Any help would be appreciated!

Welcome to the forum.

Seems like the BSOD's were caused by "PC Tools Internet Security". Recommend you remove it and use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other security software:

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Malwarebytes - Free

Good and Free system security combination.

Randomly occurring BSOD
Hi All, my friend has a laptop that has been getting BSOD rather frequently (a few every day). The laptop is a Sony VAIO (US-SVS131190X-LBOM) run Win 7 Home Premium with 4 GB RAM fixed onboard. I've asked him to run memtest, and it has come back clean (I'm really hoping this isn't a memory issue,...

BSOD occurring seemingly randomly.
I can't think of any recent programs or updates I've downloaded that seem to be linked to this BSOD. As said in the subject it seems to be happening randomly. My laptop is normally very healthy, CPU runs very low, etc.
