Windows 7: Weird Problem

25 Jun 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Weird Problem

Hey all, we have a saying here along the lines of "A tailor can't fix his own holes" so I am here asking for any advice.

I have been getting a strange glitch where windows stop refreshing and menus and informational pop-ups (like when you hover mouse on title of a webpage) turn black. The context menu for example when right clicked show correct for a split second and covered by a black overlay.

This started after I installed a program called QTTabBar (but not sure if they are related). Today it happened twice in 20 minute interval, but possible it won't happen for 3 days. Remedy has been to log off and log back in.

I have already restored to an image from before the install. And also cleaned the startup a bit. But still happening.

Attaching the DM log collector from a few days earlier (had a random BSOD) results in case you want to check the state of the system.

There are a couple of drivers showing up in your dump file.

I don't see any trace of Kaspersky on your system, have you had it installed and then uninstalled it?

Nope, never had it installed. Been using ZA for 5+ years.

It is this:

I have it on my laptop too, which is unrelated. They both have ZA Extreme Security, maybe it is installing it.

Arc has already checked the dmp for me and we are aware of ZA causing the BSOD, I have my eyes watching it.

Thanks for your input, much appreciated!

Edit: Just checked ZA forums
NDIS is part of Kaspersky and as ZA uses Kaspersky engine it is also included in ZA (antivirus versions).
