Hi there, 2 days ago I bought a new laptop, switched it on today and got a BSOD with "Kernel_Security_Check_Error"

 

I haven't installed any drivers or anything, all I have from my old pc is a wired mouse that I am now using with this. Windows had the option to "repair" so it restarted and things seem ok with no repeat of BSOD, any ideas what caused the BSOD? my internet connection keeps dropping today too? have I been hacked?

My specs are>>

Acer E1-571

Intel Core i5

4GB Ram

Windows 8

Online Armor Firewall

Avira Antivirus

 

Thanks...

Hi

 

Blue screens are happens when Windows kernel crashes. One single blue screen is nothing to worry about. If the same BSOD appears again we need to examine the root cause of the issue. So if the issue happens again, upload the crash dump files and the Speccy snapshot here.

 

Follow the below instruction to make sure Windows writes crash dumps if the issue happens again.

Hi thanks for reply, it seems to be ok now, I haven't had any more BSOD's since my post and I have restarted and shutdown the computer about 5-7 times since that time, so do you think everything is ok now? nothing seems sluggish or anything.

Hi

 

If everything works OK, you don't have to worry.  It could be a temporary driver clash which caused the issue.
