    BSOD Crashes at any moment.

    So today I was playing games and surfing the internet, and all of a sudden I see the BSOD on Windows 8
    I get it all the time now, and it said something about UNEXPECTED_KERNAL_MODE_TRAP
    If anyone can help me out, I don't know what I did. Thanks in advanced!

    i5 3450
    Alienware 0KM92T Motherboard
    DDR3 Dual Channel 6 GB ram
    NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660
    1 TB HDD

    Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). Please uninstall Daemon Tools.
    As an alternative, many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

    You need to get these drivers sorted. Either update them to their latest or uninstall them with Revo Uninstaller free:

    LogMeIn Hamachi Virtual network interface driver

    NTIOLib_X64.sys Mon Jan 18 08:31:59 2010 (4B53C81F)
    MSI Afterburner driver (known BSOD issues with Windows) Also found to be a part of MSI Live Update 5

    SmartDefragDriver.sys Fri Nov 26 15:29:40 2010 (4CEF7E04)
    Smart Defrag

    CLVirtualDrive.sys Mon Dec 26 19:26:47 2011 (4EF87617)
    CyberLink Virtual Device Driver

    Note   Note
    Download and install Revo Uninstaller free from here:Opt for "Advanced Mode" and uninstall the software (also delete the leftover registry entries).
