    Random BSOD wdf01000.sys

    Hello good folks!

    I have recently installed my Asus N53SV laptop with windows 8 Pro x64.
    Since the reinstall I find I am having BSOD's.
    they occur pretty random, I have not found a cause yet.
    I tried analyzing the minidumps but I have not found the problem myself
    I hope one of the experts here can point me in the right direction!

    My system Specs:
    Intel Core i7 2630QM
    6GB 1333Mhz
    Intel HD 3000
    Nvidia Gefore GT 540M
    Windows 8 Pro x64

    Attached are my logs/dumps
    Thanks so much in advance!

    All BSOD's were caused by hcmon.sys. Hcmon.sys with description VMware USB monitor is a driver file from company VMware, Inc. belonging to product VMware USB monitor. Please either update the driver or uninstall it.

    Indeed it is this driver file, and indeed it's a problem from VMWare!
    Thanks so much for your help!

    I will try to solve the problem further myself!

    Giblet, I also have BSOD with Hcmon.sys. I know this is a VMware USB driver, but I don't want to uninstall VMware. Did you find a fix? Can you offer any suggestions?

    Anyone? VMware has been working just fine for almost 2 years, but now I get a crash with the following info:
    crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\040413-13400-01.dmp
    This was probably caused by the following module: hcmon.sys (hcmon+0x6289)
    Bugcheck code: 0xA
    (0xFFFFF9809F876F80, 0x2, 0x1, 0xFFFFF8000354A768)

    file path:
    product: VMware
    USB monitor

    company: VMware, Inc.
    description: VMware USB monitor
    check description: This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver
    accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.
    This appears to be a
    typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware
    A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of
    this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following
    driver: hcmon.sys (VMware USB monitor, VMware, Inc.).
