Earlier this evening when I was reading a topic on BC, my screen suddenly went black, and then I got this BSOD related to my firewall driver engine.

Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Stop: 0x000000D1
(0xF99F4070, Ox00000002, 0x00000000, 0xEFEE7C5F)

fwdrv.sys - addressEFEE7C5F base at EFED30000
Date Stamp 4624d37a

I looked up the driver name, and it is the engine for the Sunbelt Personal Firewall. I've searched their site, but have seen no mention of their driver causing a BSOD.

I have the latest version, the driver is in the proper folder and there is only one copy. I have not seen any warning or error messages in event viewer connected with this issue or the time of the BSOD. Sunbelt firewall did not issue any warnings or alerts about a malfunction, and I see nothing pertinent in the logs.

The most recent changes to the computer have been uninstalling Firefox 1.? and installing Firefox 2.0.0.11. Reinstalling McAfee Site Advisor - latest version, flashblock, NoScript, Smiley Xtra, and installing colorful tabs. I have also installed Comodo BoClean 4.25. I have not had any issues with this firewall until now.

I have Windows XP Home OEM
Dell Dimension 2400

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:

Seems that driver related BSOD is a known issue reported as far back as two years ago according to this discussion thread.

Thanks Quietman7. That's quite some time. I read that thread and all the ones it linked to, and the interesting thing is they all talk about earlier versions than what I have. One post mentioned a utility that would reconfigure the firewall, but I'm leary of using it due to the difference in versions.

Sounds like you may have a HIPS conflict. What other anti-virus, anti-spyware, or firewalls do you have installed on the system?

Hello logicslayer,

I have only ONE firewall installed. Having more than one is unwise. Unless you want to count the Windows firewall which I have disabled.

You can see my security programs in my signature. :thumbsup:
