Windows 7: BSOD While Shutting Down

BSOD While Shutting Down

Hello, for the past couple months, I've been, at random, experiencing a BSOD that only occurs when I am trying to shut down the computer. It has not occured any other time. And strange thing is, it doesn't always happen. Usually the computer shuts down just fine, but on occasion it crashes and reboots. I am only made aware of this the next day when I notice the computer is still on and I get a message telling me Windows recovered from an unexpected error.

Here's the information from my DUMP file of the incident.

Welcome to SF!

Looks like VMware is causing the issue. Try removing it and see what happens.

If that doesn't work, please follow these instructions:

I don't have VMWare installed on this machine, however I do have VirtualBox and Microsoft Virtual PC installed. I did find VMNetSrv.sys located in Microsoft Virtual PC, so could that be the culprit?

That sounds right. I must confess I didn't research what driver in particular VMNetSrv.sys was. It looked virtual so I assumed VMware.

A Google search reveals that it belongs to VirtualPC.
