    BSOD kernel security check failure

    Recently I started getting BSOD when the PC is restarting saying kernel security check failure.

    I have to hard reset 3-4 times in order for it to boot normally.

    I have no clue why, hope someone can help me :/

    Did you recently install new hardware or a new program?

    The only (working)dumpfile is Probably caused by : copperhd.sys ( copperhd+288b )
    This is the driver from your Razer Diamondback mouse. This driver is outdated (2009) and is known to cause bsod.
    I believe there is still no new driver for this mouse from Razer and the mouse needs to be removed from your system.

    Please update OPenvpn to the latest windows 8.1 version, yuor drivers are from 2010.
    OpenVPN - Open Source VPN

    The drivers from your Superantispyware are from 2011 and are probably not compatible with windows 8.1, advice update to the latest version.( or remove)

    You are using VMWare, be sure you are using the latest windows 8.1 compatible version.

    I guess it was indeed my old Razer Copperhead mouse.
    When I tried to uninstall it I got BSOD all the time. After a few restarts I managed somehow to log on in safe mode and delete the rest of it.
    Cleaned registry with CCleaner and now the problem seem to gone. Restarted a few times now without any issues.

    Very impressive how you filtered that out, thanks a thousand times.
