Perfmon shows Teredo issues and issues with SuperAntiSpyware
Please open up Device Manager and look for problem devices.
When you find them, right-click on them and select "Uninstall". If it asks if you want to remove software, select the checkbox to remove it.
Then reboot and check Device Manager again.
Please let us know which devices were having problems in Device Manager, what you did to them, and if they remained fixed after a reboot.
Teredo was the only one that showed an Exclamation Mark, I have Uninstalled that, rebooted, and no longer saw any error messages or Exclamation Marks in Device Manager. This seems to have helped immediately, but I will continue through the rest of the cleanup process.
If you experience problems with the SuperAntiSpyware devices, try installing a fresh copy and then uninstalling it.
I have uninstalled SuperAntiSpyware / Malware and Avast. I’m guessing some of them were not working well with each other. I will find ones that work together and install them after the cleanup.
Although you appear to have a reasonable number of Windows Update hotfixes for this version of your OS, please double check for any new Windows Updates. It only takes one update to cause a problem, so it's essential that you have all of them. The actual number is not important. Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.
I was missing one update that I can see, it’s now installed.
I: drive has way less than 1% free space (maybe 1/100th of a % or less). In this case, there's only 22 mB free (it's a 2 tB drive)! That is a critical problem!
Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty). Low free space can cause BSOD's - but the actual amount depends on the files being used by the system.
This was just my backup Seagate drive. I reformatted it so I can start with a fresh backup once everything is clean.
Lot's more Live Kernel Events than BSOD's.
Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on the "Administrative Events" heading
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right-click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).
FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504
File attached - will continue performing the rest of the recommendations and checking the suggested link while waiting for a reply.
Thank you so much again, you and the rest of the folks that donate their time on this website are awesome and so appreciated!
