Windows 7: BSOD while opening any folder or accessing any drive (win32k.sys)

01 Jul 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD while opening any folder or accessing any drive (win32k.sys)

I have been getting BSOD crash whenever I try to open any folder. The same folder can be opened with 7-zip file manager. There has been no recent updates of drivers or Windows. The BSOD shows a Service exception and win32k.sys as the malfunctioned file. I have attached the crash report as per your guidelines. Kindly help!!

Edit 1: I checked the .zip file and found it empty even after running the dm log collector I, the .zip file remains empty, thus I have manually compressed the temp folder SFdebugFiles and attached it.

The above is the diagnostic report. I have updated my windows but still the problem persists. There is no BSOD when I open my external hard disk using the windows explorer, but I get BSOD when I try to open anyone of my internal hard disks (C:\ or D:\)

Windows OS version: 6.1.7600.2.00010100.0.0.001
Your OS is not updated, the newest Windows 7 version is Windows 7601 what means that service pack 1 is installed.
That you are missing service pack 1 means that you are very vulnerable, but also are missing many BSOD fixes.

I request that you check a few times for updates.
