Windows 7: BSOD - Reference by pointer (Bugcheck 18)

24 Oct 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
BSOD - Reference by pointer (Bugcheck 18)

Hello everyone,
I'm fighting with my PC for a month already. Basically, when the PC enters the stand-by mode on the hour (like from 8am to 9am) it gets a BSOD. This is what I tried so far:
- I left the PC in safe mode and it didn't reboot, so
- I selected ONLY the Microsoft services at the startup but the system kept crashing
- I decided to run a malware scan in safe mode and I deleted some files the antivirus found, but without any success
- I tried to use driver verifier but the system didn't crash while it was running
- I updated all my Ethernet/WiFi drivers but this didn't work out either (I updated the external and internal network cards)

So now I'm still stuck and I don't really know what to do. See the attachment below for more information.
Thank you for your time!

More than likely caused by the Counterfiet install media.
You are running a Retail board using an Asus product key.

I've been getting the BSOD a few times a week since I bought my lap top. It's a Dell Vostro 1520 with Windows 7. The BSOD always says reference by pointer, I can't figure out what is causing it. Attached is a zip file with the mini dump information. Any help is appreciated.
