Windows 7: Kernel-Processor-Power Error?

Kernel-Processor-Power Error?

Actually, I have two things I'm wondering about. First is this, it haven't really made any problems to me(I think, unless it's the cause of some of the BSODs I get), but this happens every time I start my computer so I wonder if it's something I can fix?
Log Name: System

Then I also get another warning I wonder about;

</Event>

How can I stop these things from occurring?

Hi,

1) The first error you have described is probably because Intel speedstep is disabled in the bios. Get into your bios settings and make sure speedstep is enabled. Press F10 to save changes and exit. See if that makes the error go away.

2) The second error is about custom dlls being loaded. This is simply non-MS apps using custom dlls. Windows is basically saying it doesnt know whats going on. If you scroll down that error log to "Data name", you can see that the apps loading the custom dlls are Kaspersky and another app associated with "guard.dll" which is most likely Comodo. If you have Kaspersky and Comodo installed on your computer, nothing to worry about since both would be trusted apps.

Here are the dumps. Checking your guide I noticed that I don't have it enabled so that my dumps show BSODs, I fixed that now.
So I'll post dumps of the BSODs if I get them again later!

Thanks Bill2, where can I find Intel speedstep in the bios?
And yes, I have Kaspersky and COMODO. Good to know that I don't have to worry then.

I'm not exactly an expert, but wouldn't the first error be fixed, if you flashed your motherboard with the newest version?

I've already tried updating the drivers, but it doesn't help.

Which motherboard do you have on the computer this problem is occurring on?

So you are using the latest driver from Nvidia? (15.51 WHQL)

x64: NVIDIA DRIVERS 15.51 WHQL
x86: NVIDIA DRIVERS 15.51 WHQL

In the bios, look for EIST (that stands for enhanced intel speedstep technology).

Some machines also have a sppedstep tab in Power settings.
