Hi all,


My computer has functioned very well for the past several years, with no malware or major issues. The occasional BSOD, however these were generally rare and never seemed to affect my computer otherwise.


However, recently, BSODs have been occurring more and more frequently, and I am witnessing some very strange behavior from my computer. I've attempted much in order to fix it to no avail.


The BSODs pop-up very quick and disappear immediately, so I have not yet gotten a chance to take a picture or see what it says.


They started occurring about a week or two ago. After becoming suspicious, I downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and did a full system scan, with no issues detected. I thought maybe it was something I installed and activated System Restore. After waiting for several minutes, my computer restarted and reported that the System Restore failed, saying something to the effect of "Could not access a certain file" (I don't remember the exact message).


Then this weekend, things really got worse. After using my computer for a while, it began to freeze. First the program I was using, then everything. A BSOD popped-up, and I restarted the system. After waiting a few minutes for the system to restart, a launched a program and another BSOD popped-up.


In another incident (I believe a few days later), another BSOD. I restarted and then I could not interact with or open anything. I couldn't click on any of the icons on my taskbar or desktop, even the Windows button and the time/date button at the end of the taskbar. I pressed CTRL+SHIFT+ESC with no results. Then CTRL+ALT+DEL and received an error message stating that the CTRL+ALT+DEL menu could not be opened. Hit the power button on my computer and the screen came up telling me I have programs still open. I was able to click on the "Shut down anyway" (or whatever the button says) and another error window popped-up. This one's title included "Microsoft .NET Framework" if I remember correctly. The dialog box where the error would usually be was replaced with a large red X, along with each of the buttons at the bottom of the window. I force shut down and restarted again. Attempted another System Restore following these events with the same results as last time (System Restore failed).


Today was the last straw. After 30 minutes of using the computer without issue, another BSOD. I apologize for the long post, just very frustrated and don't know what to do anymore. Thank you to everyone who responds. I've attached my PC information below along with the required files. If any more info is needed, let me know.

Sorry for the delay in responding, I've been very busy at home and at work over the last few days.


Your UEFI/BIOS (version A01) dates from 2011.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it.  WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.

Your wireless device is disabled.  Did you do this deliberately?  If so, why?

Please enable the device and update it's drivers.  Feel free (after updating the drivers) to disable the device again (if so desired).


2 out of the 4 memory dumps that I ran (the most recent one's) point to I/O errors - most often these are hardware errors (but can be software)

The other 2 are access denied errors - which could be hardware or software

I'd start by running these free diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

(start with the hard drive tests)


Interestingly, one thing that might be affecting this is the MSI ODD monitor (as it's associated with an I/O device)

It uses a driver that's known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems (NTIOLib_x64.sys)

Please uninstall this program immediately.


There's mention of your Juniper software.
As I suspect this has to do with banking, I'd strongly suggest uninstalling it - and then installing a freshly downloaded copy of the latest version that's compatible with your OS.


Uninstall LogMeIn - it's drivers date from 2007/8/9.


If all of this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions:  http://www.carrona.org/verifier.html
