Windows 7: Random BSOD and System Hangs

29 May 2014   #1

Windows 10 Professional 64-bit
Random BSOD and System Hangs

Hello All,

I have a system in the production area where I work that randomly BSODs and hangs while the employess on that production line are using it. I never see it. Because of this, I'm not really sure how it happens and what exactly they are doing when it does happen.

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x86
CPU: Intel Pentium G840

From what I have seen through looking at the minidump files myself using BlueScreenView, most of them are caused by bugcheck 0x7E which is SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDELED.

When it doesnt blue screen, it will just sit there and hang. It is so badly locked up that not even the mouse will move and it does not respond to keyboard input. The employess on the line say that sometimes it will hang, then start responding again. Other times it will hang indefinitely and they will have to do a hard reset to get the computer to function again.

The hangs dont happen if they just let the computer sit. The hangs tend to happen when they print a set of our documents we internally use to test our cartridges to one printer, then try and print another set to another printer.

The software they mostly use is Adobe Reader and Office 2007 Enterprise. We are a laser printer catridge remanufacturing company so we have many printer drivers installed on each computer. This is the only system I am seeing this issue with.

I am not really certain how to go about finding the root cause of this issue and what I can do to resolve it. I will upload all the data the SF Diagnostics app gathered to help give you as much info as possible.

Your Intel Management Interface driver.
Update it here.

The user manually initiated this crash dump.
This is a very strong indication of a virus.

Use Kaspersky's TDSSKiller Anti Rootkit utility

Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller

Avira is causing issues.

Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\avipbb.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for avipbb.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for avipbb.sys
I recommend you remove it and replace it with MSE and Malwarebytes.

Make sure you don't enable the free trial of malwarebytes pro, deselect the option when asked.

I noticed a lot of dump requests for the Intel Storage Technology Driver.

  1. Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
  2. It will open the "computer management" window.
  3. Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
  4. Expand "Disc Drives" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  5. Select one item under it, right click, uninstall.
  6. Continue the process for all items under "Disc Drives"
  7. Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate system driver, msahci.sys.

Your Intel display driver could do with an update.

Thank you for you response. The user iniated crash dump is something I did, I forgot to mention that one. Its a way of getting out of a system hang without doing a hard reset. Ill try your suggestions tomorrow and see if it helps.


I decided to just blow everything away and go from a fresh install of Windows 7. I decided that applying all those steps would take a whole lot longer than just starting from scratch again. So far, it seems to be working well. So Ill mark this solved for now.

Sometimes I find that idea a good choice, not always practical but a lot of the time it can tie up loose ends :)

Any more issues after let me know :)
