    From what I gather in the limited reading I've done on it, it has a lower detection rate than lots of others.

    I would trust in it however, but also with a weekly scan with Malwarebytes, other good security practices like long passwords, having a secure router and general advice I laid down in this post:

    Security test results

    If you want a good, free 3rd party firewall and you have a decent cpu/ram, then ZoneAlarm free might be good for you. It can be set and forget it so it doesn't ever bother you for anything, once you have all your programs configured in it.

    It's one of the better software firewalls going. It doesn't just close ports, but rather it filters them to give no response (unless you are purposely serving on a certain port.) That's good protection against hackers that scan blocks of ips for vulnerabilities, but your router is still your first defense, if you have one.

    And any malware can report out of the machine without you letting it.

    munzir, I read one of your earlier posts, and have something to say. I got a PC having Quick Heal Total Security 2014, and I am having the EXACT problem you are having. It seems to me(I am just guessing) that this year's software has some wrong driver files, and they keep making problems. I had originally bought the 2012 version, which came in the CD, and it shows no problems. Ever since I downloaded the 2014 software upgrade from the quickheal website, this problems keeps appearing. If you can get the quickheal guys to give you a downgraded version of their software(it may not be possible) it may fix your problem. It fixed mine.

This has been happening for quite a while now and it constantly repeats after the first error appears after a start up. I don't really know or understand a lot about this field of computing so any help would be great.
I have had this problem before but only once and I did not pay heed to it. I download torrent quite a lot using bittorrent, and bsod has never occurred. But ever since this last torrent I have been downloading it has been happening quite often and only whenbittorretn is active. - - - - -
