    It's possible that your PC is infected with some unwanted software: -

    Fault Module Name: bitguard.dll
    Have a read here for info on that file: -

    What is BitGuard.exe and BitGuard.dll? | File information by Dennis

    If that file is part of some unwanted application, then removing the application has a good chance of fixing your issue.

    Had BitGuard in programs and features, signed by MediaTechSoft Inc. as stated in your link.

    Uninstalled it, will scan for malware later.
