Windows 7: BSOD ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x5A440) - Overnight crashes durning torrents.

BSOD ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x5A440) - Overnight crashes durning torrents.


So I built my own rig, thought it would be straightforward, I was wrong. System has been slowly becoming more stable as time progress. Flashed bios, updated drivers, etc etc. However, to get me into a truly stable situation, need some help from people that know what they are doing.

This issue always happens overnight when I leave the computer downloading torrents. Every so often it just happens randomly while I am using my computer, viewing a website, writing a doc, programming . Start-up is kinda slow for 8 core processor as well. I have done with mem and disk test with good results.

I also used DRP13 to make sure I had all the latest drivers. No overclocking. Talking too much as this zip prob tells you what you need.

Obviously any help would be great. Thanks.

A lot of the bugchecks aren't giving very much useful information.
However one bugcheck has caught my eye, it may be a long shot but I've seen bugchecks being caused by viruses and because you're downloading torrents it wouldn't surprise me. (No offence).

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.
A buffer overrun is basically when a driver writes into a non-paged pool address that is assigned for another driver which has caused pool corruption, this is mainly due to a device driver using more memory than what it is allocated. Another bugcheck that you have is actually caused by pool corruption.

I would highly recommend running your normal anti virus for threats.
I would then download and run malwarebytes. Make sure you untick the box that asks if you want to start a 60 day trial of malwarebytes pro.

I think you have Driver Verfier enabled as one of your bugchecks is caused by DV detecting a violation.
If you have turned it off can you please enable it again by following these instructions?

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Edit: You seem to have an issue with your HDD. Can you please run a disk check to scan for errors on your HDD. Please follow these instructions

Disk Check

Can you then please run Seatools to scan for a failing HDD. Please follow these instructions.

BugCheck 24, {b50019060b, fffff88010c245d8, fffff88010c23e10, fffff80208337172}

Probably caused by : Ntfs.sys ( Ntfs!NtfsExceptionFilter+20320 )
One last thing, I can't seem to find much about this sys file but it looks very suspicious.

Probably caused by : vstor2-mntapi20-shared.sys

Thanks for your assistance. I have both Malwarebytes and bitdefender.

When I ran Driver Verification I could no longer boot into windows. I got an DRIVER_VERIFIER_IOMANAGER_VIOLATION this pointed to Scarlet.Crush Productions. This is driver i used to pair Bluetooth with a ps3 controller. I will remove and see what happens. I ran a system Restore then bitdefender no longer worked. Good excuse to revert back to MS defender. Perhaps that will help as well.

I ran chkdsk on both my hard drives without any negative results.

Good work pointing out vstor2-mntapi20-shared.sys this is left over from a vmware install. Not sure how to remove it, any suggestions?

So that took me on a interesting journey. Found out I had a bunch drivers that were not doing anything.

Figured out how to view and uninstall drivers using. pnputil.exe cleaned a lot of weird stuff out. Hope it works.

Thanks again.

Can you disable most of your startup programs. Use method three using these instructions

Startup Programs - Change

Disable anything that isn't your Anti Virus or anything thy looks like it must boot from Microsoft.

Then can you enable Driver Verifier again for 24 hours.
