    Such a wide range of errors is possibly indicative of a malware infection - or of damage done by and infection before it was removed.

    Have you scanned for malware? Has this installation been infected?
    So do I do a full scan now? Or what options do I have? It hardly goes to sleep these days.

    Scan for malware: Free Online AntiMalware Resources

    After that I'd have to refer you to the Apple Support Community for BootCamp: https://discussions.apple.com/commun...ware/boot_camp

    Good luck!

    Did a BitDefender scan. No issues found.

    I'm out of ideas then. Try the Apple Boot Camp communities: https://discussions.apple.com/commun...ware/boot_camp
    Good luck!

    Do you know of instances where Connectify, MySQL, Kaspersky or VMware can muck up things?

    I have seen BSOD issues with Connectify3
    I have seen BSOD issues with Kaspersky - mostly the Internet Security versions
    I suspect issues w/VMWare - but have no concrete proof of it.

    I use KIS 2013. Which is a good antivirus?

    How can I make a wireless hotspot without using Connectify?

    And, I have narrowed down that BSoD to NVIDIA HD Audio driver. Forums on Anandtech and other sites are complaining about it.

    I use Windows Defender and the Windows Firewall.

    I have no experience with wireless hotspots.

    I'm glad that you found the nVidia HD Audio driver to be at fault. Thanks for letting us know!

    Is Windows Defender good enough? It doesn't even scan a removable drive when inserted. And that bothers me as I routinely encounter viruses in pen drives.

    I advise that the best and cheapest anti-virus is a bag of cement.
    Encase your computer in it and then drop it into deep water - no more viruses!

    But seriously, I have had 3 virus' on my systems since I started working with computers.
    1 actually infected my computer and the others that borrowed files from me (this was in 1991 and we didn't even have anti-virus)
    The other 2 were downloaded to my system and never got exectuted - so I didn't get infected. They were found by a routine scan back when I was using AdAware.

    Yet every day at work I see people with all sorts of protection - and they all have problems with virus'
    What's the problem? It's simple - it's the surfing habits of the user.

    At one point I was curious why my kids got infected and I didn't. So I asked them. They said that when they got a pop-up (this was about 7 years ago) they'd click on it just to get rid of it.

    The point here is that it's your surfing habits that protect you. The antivirus program (in my case) simply serves as a backup in case something gets past my habits.

    FWIW - I have several tech friends who don't even use antivirus' They maintain backup copies of their data (and images of their hard drives) - so when/if they get infected, they simply wipe and start over.

    You can discuss the relative merits of one antivirus over the other - but the most significant factor is the surfing habits of the user.

    Also, the more complicated a program that works at the low level of an antivirus - the more likely it is to have problems. We experience many more BSOD issues due to Internet Security/Security Center apps than we do with Antivirus applications.

    The same thing goes for firewalls - many more BSOD's with 3rd party firewalls than with the Windows firewall - with no discernable impact on safety that I have seen.
