    Just got another 2 BSOD. One said memory management and the other said irql driver less or not egual to and had iastora.sys in parentheses. This was after I deleted wpro. I will try to get the dump files and the screenshots.

    I am running a malware scan. Just checked with two other computers similar to mine and it doesn't show up on theirs. This installs itself on boot which causes it to BSOD.

    Ya, it is likely that one stick of RAM is bad (especially because of what you were saying in the OP). The iastora.sys driver you have is good. The machine is almost definitely crashing because of RAM and not drivers.

    So, I would do as I said, about running only one stick at a time until you can figure out if one of them crashes while the other does not.

    You can visit your motherboard site to download/install latest Intel Rapid Storage driver, but like I said, what you have already is good and it might actually already be the latest.

    Could be Pando Media Booster installing the WinPcap driver. It's only a guess though. On the other hand, maybe it is malware installing it on you. It is a very useful tool to any black hat hacker. It can capture all data in or out of your adapter.

    Ensure you've set Optimized Defaults in the bios. That should at least try to set the memory as it needs to be, if it is already not.

    it's not pando media booster. That is associated with league. Two other systems are running league without that driver. The RAM may be bad, but I already tested each stick individually without any problems, and I tested both sticks without a problem. It may be malware because it will only BSOD after I delete that driver and restart. MBAM should find something.

    EDIT: CPU-Z is working now, I will get you those numbers.

    Makes a little sense, being that I didn't like that driver since the first I've ever seen it a couple of days ago when I first started debugging again. The modern WinPcap that would not crash Windows 7 or 8 is npf.sys. I have it and use it, as part of Wireshark.

    I don't see the JEDEC for 800 MHz, but going by the other similar ones, I can tell the memory is set decently.

    What you can do, for now, is to make a .txt file with Notepad and save it as WPRO_41_2001.txt. Change the .txt to .sys after saving. Move it to the driver folder location C:\Windows\System32\drivers, then set the Security on it to not allow write access to any account.

    That should stop anything trying to install a real driver.

    Reboot and see if that file is still 0 kb or not.

    I'm in safe mode performing a virus scan. Will do that if nothing turns up from MBAM.

    Virus scan didn't detect anything on the c drive. Those other people that are having the BSOD with WPRO, could you post their program lists? I want to see if anything correlates.
