Windows 7: 0x000000C4" Stop error after you restart a Windows 7

0x000000C4" Stop error after you restart a Windows 7

Hello All,

Been at this a day now.. I have dev kit installed, getting some error when I try to run it though, will post message once I get back into windows some how.. I need some help figuring out what happened here and why I am getting this BSOD with regards to C4 Stop. Can I get someone to take me through the steps required to figure it out. I am afraid at this point I need some hand holding. ( not literally )

BSOD reads " a device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught. The faulty driver currently on the kernal stack must be replaced with a working version. If this is the..... you know the rest..

STOP: 0x000000C4

I need some help here.. please... I think this has to do with the verifier and I want to make sure I don't blow up the machine, hence the hand holding. I have already looked and done some but not all.

"0x000000C4" Stop error after you restart a Windows 7-based, Windows 8-based, Windows Server 2008 R2-based or Windows Server 2012-based computer that has the Driver Verifier tool enabled Installed

Windows SDK for Windows 8.1 ? Windows Dev Center - installed but getting error. will try and write what it says when I get back into windows.

Crystal Dew World - installed - nothing wrong

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable - thinking about doing this but unsure at this time ( prior to actually seeing the DMP file )

Kind regards,

okay, so what I did was delete existing setting on the verifier. I figured this is what got me possibly into trouble so let me do what the page says. After a reboot, I am in windows, but this happens some times, so not feeling to positive yet. After getting in I wanted to post what I am seeing on windows debug. Here it is:
