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?


I have run tdsskiller and nothing has come up and not on the anti virus either.


My specs are>>

Acer E1-571

Intel Core i5

4GB Ram

Windows 8

Online Armor Firewall

Avira Antivirus

If it happened to my 2 days old computer I'd run to the store to return it.
