    BSOD on startup


    Hello again,

    Recently I thought I solved my BSOD problem, listed here. BSOD on computer start up, After fresh Windows install I thought it was Norton 360's fault.

    I uninstalled Norton and all of the sudden I am Blue Screening again on start up. I have not installed Norton back yet.

    As listed in my other thread this Windows install is about a week old now. Sometimes I will make it past start up and it will blue screen a minute ate or two after the computer has logged in.

    Thank you for your help.

    One possibility for BSOD was memory failing from the dmp file. However, Since you have your PC OC'ed @4.4GHz, I'd suggest to temporarily reset your BIOS back to default and reboot the system to see if BSOD occurs again.

    BTW, how did you uninstall Norton ? did you use their special uninstaller ?

    Went into the control panel and selected uninstall. It then opened some Norton Program and uninstalled it.

    I will down clock everything and see how it runs.

    To uninstall Norton, you need to download the removal tool:
