Hey guys, I've been getting pretty regular BSOD because of the file ipnat.sys file. I'm unsure what to do about it, any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Are you using 2 firewalls at once?

ipnat.sys file information

The process IP Network Address Translator

ipnat.sys is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32\drivers.

Important: Some malware camouflage themselves as ipnat.sys, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the ipnat.sys process on your pc whether it is pest.

Garmanma,

Nope, I don't believe I'm using two firewalls...just the regular Windows one.

I have 2 instances of ipnat.sys when I search my hard drive, 1 in C:\Windows\System32\drivers, one in C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386, but both look clean, according to Kaspersky.

Should I upload a minidump file? I don't know how to read those :thumbsup:

It could be a damaged or missing Microsoft Update KB886185

It might also be damaged RAM or a bad pagefile
Try running memtest
