Hello. I'm new to these forums, as I have come across a weird issue at hand.

 

I have a computer that is having a BSOD in random situations, but it's generally the same error. Here is the error:

 

-Modification of system code or a critical data structure was detected. 

 

-Stop 0x00000109 (addresses here are different)

 

-CI.dll - Address (addresses here are different)

 

The computer has had Windows 7 re-installed onto it, but apparently the issue is somewhat reproduced every time when Skype and Chrome is open at the same time.

 

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome,

What security product do you have installed, updated and running when this happens?

Thanks

The only products on there at the moment are Avast and Malwarebytes. Avast would be the one up and running currently.

Hi

I hope that Malwarebytes is the free version. Having two active scanners running is one of the easiest ways to have problems.

Keep us posted

Seems to be a RAM problem per Faultwire .  That opinion appears to be shared at http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-system/modification-of-system-code-or-a-critical-data/fd277898-8a9f-4ff4-b06d-7cb0f62fb08c .

 

I would run a diagnostic, using the tool listed below.

Yea that's what I was assuming as well when looking up a bit of info on the specific error

 I'll do the test that you suggested.

Sorry for the delay. Wanted to post an update. 

It turns out it was the ram sticks that are corrupted. We're looking to replace them now. 

 

Just curious though, but what would cause RAM failure?

I'm not technically inclined, but this is the way that I always think...about any artifact:  Anything man-made is capable of being defective or having its lifetime shortened by unanticipated circumstance.

To add to what Louis said

We are imperfect and we make imperfect things, even our perfect machines are imperfect

[that should make it perfectly clear] :)
