I originally opened up a topic under Viruses / Trojans. After going through a number of scans and fixes (provided by the tech) and determining it does not have any malware, it was recommended I open a topic here.

I have a Gateway MX7118 running Windows Media Center (all Windows updates current - SP3). No matter what virus scan program I attempt to run, I get a BSOD. I primarily get STOP 0x00000050, but I have also seen STOP 0x0000008E. Here is the latest BSOD information:

*** STOP: 0X0000008E (0xC000001D,0x805258DC,0x80549C24, 0X00000000)


Caused by Driver: ntoskrnl.exe
Caused by Address: ntoskrnl.exe+4e8dc

The person I was working with thinks it may be a driver problem.
The PC originally had McAfee Internet Security on it, I removed that and have used AVG, AVAST, ESET online Scanner, Housecall. Every scan results in a BSOD.
I have also attempted "sfc / scannow" and I can get about 3/4 through and then the BSOD.

Does anyone have any ideas ? I'm not sure what to check next.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
