Hi guys


I'm having the BSOD when running uTorrent. Sometimes it crashes after a few minutes, sometimes it runs for hours.

Downloaded and ran BluescreenView. Problem sees to be with NETIO.sys. I've attached some of the minidumps here as a zip file.


Also saw looking around that a Kernel memory dump might help, so I made a zip file for that too. Can be found here:



Computer is an Acer Aspire 5560. Any help would be much appreciated.

What's the operating system and the security software? Are both current and have you run any scans?

Windows 7 home edition premium


I was using AVG, but saw in some other places it can cause issues. It's been uninstalled and Microsoft Security essentials is now running. Still got a BSOD last night. Quick scan was run - no issues. Full scan is running today.


Both have all the updates available

What I've read about utorrent doesn't give me much confidence in the site. I can't recommend it.

If you want a second opinion scan I'd suggest going to eset.com and running their online scanner.



Keep us posted

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.
Arg1: 0000000000000028, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
Arg4: fffff880017526fd, address which referenced memory

We have a 0xD1 bugcheck, in this case it shows that invalid memory was trying to be read at an IRQL of 2.

rax=fffff880033c3920 rbx=0000000000000000 rcx=0000000000000000
rdx=0000000000000000 rsi=0000000000000000 rdi=0000000000000000

So we had a mov command to copy data from an address calculated by adding 28 and the value of rdx which results in a memory read from address 0x28 whcih isn't allowed.

Therefore we crashed.

We can see a lot of network routines, I won't go into detail about them as networking isn't a strong point of mine anyway.

Your network drivers are both over 3 years old, you need to update them on the manufacturers website.

Important Note: Using any torrent, file sharing, peer-to-peer (P2P) program (i.e. Limewire, eMule, Kontiki, BitTorrent, BitComet, uTorrent, BitLord, BearShare, Azureus/Vuze, Skype, etc) or visiting such sites is a security risk which can make your system susceptible to a smörgåsbord of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. In some cases the computer could be turned into a malware honeypot or zombie.

File sharing networks are thoroughly infested with malware according to security firm Norman ASA and many of them are unsafe to visit or use. The reason for this is that file sharing relies on its members giving and gaining unfettered access to computers across the P2P network. This practice can make you vulnerable to data and identity theft, system infection and remote access exploit by attackers who can take control of your computer without your knowledge.

...It is almost never safe to download executable programs from peer-to-peer file sharing networks because they are a major source of malware infections.

Software Cracks: A Great Way to Infect Your PC

Even if you change the risky default settings to a safer configuration, downloading files from an anonymous source increases your exposure to infection because the files you are downloading may actually contain a disguised threat. Users visiting such pages may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that install malware. Many malicious worms and Trojans, such as the Storm Worm, target and spread across P2P files sharing networks because of their known vulnerabilities.

Further some file sharing programs are bundled with other free software you may download (sometimes without the knowledge or consent of the user) and can be the source of various issues and problems to include Adware, and browser hijackers as well as malware.

Even the safest P2P file sharing programs that do not contain bundled spyware, still expose you to risks because of the very nature of the P2P file sharing process. By default, most P2P file sharing programs are configured to automatically launch at startup. They are also configured to allow other P2P users on the same network open access to a shared directory on your computer. The best way to eliminate these risks is to avoid using P2P applications and torrent web sites.Using P2P programs, file sharing or browsing torrent sites is almost a guaranteed way to get yourself infected!!
