I recently compressed my C: drive ...
Oh dear .... bad idea! Why did you do this? Did you do this before the problem (BSOD) arose?
- If you are running out of free space on C: drive, then you should move unnecessary files off that drive and to another storage media.
- The minimum free space that you should ever let your Windows system drive get down to is 15%.
You should aim to keep at least 25% free space.
- Then return the drive to an uncompressed state.
Is there any sign of malware on the system, or have you had to deal with a malware infection on the system recently?
If the above steps do not resolve your problem and there is not likely to be a malware issue, then continue with the following to resolve a problem with BSODs ...
Let's collect some more information: I'll have a look at it and help you try to resolve the problem.
Please follow the instructions: BSOD Posting Instructions: Windows 7 - Vista(Note: When you run BSOD_Windows7_Vista_v2.64_jcgriff2_.exe, it will also run autoruns.exe ... and both need to be in the same location!)
... with one exception in the following line:
- "4. Zip up the entire output folder + PERFMON and attach the zip file to your next post."
The BC forums will allow a total attachment size of only
512 kb (and what you need to attach will exceed this limit). Please upload the zip file to a file sharing website of your choice and and post a link to it in this thread so that we can access your uploaded zip file. I will have a look at the contained information and see if I can shed some light on your BSOD issue.
See the suggestions in the following links for recommendations on file sharing websites:
