    BSOD, kernel_security_check_failure


    Hello guys, i need your expertise
    at first, the BSOD came when i played game Payday 2.
    and then the 2nd when i was just browsing and copying data.
    the 3rd basically when my PC is idle, i was fallen asleep
    just installed the windows 8.1 last night, and all drivers are updated.

    any reply would be much appreciated
    thanks !

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    Only 6 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 56 - 60 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

    Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).
    Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): New link (15 Aug 2012): DuplexSecure - Downloads (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).
    Alternate link: Disk-Tools.com
    Manual procedure here: Registry and SPTD problems | DAEMON Pro Help
    At times the Killer Network Manager may cause BSOD prolems:
    NOTE: See this link first: BSOD while playing on msi gt70 dragon edition 2 (thanks to kaelaan) It appears that the Killer Service problem was solved with the latest release of the Qualcomm versions of the drivers (so try updating to a version dated from later in 2014).

    The Qualcomm Atheros Killer Service/KillerNetManager is known to cause BSOD's. Please follow the workaround instructions here:
    First, open the Run dialog (Win + R keys) and type in "services.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
    Scroll down and locate the "Qualcomm Atheros Killer Service" and right click on it. Select "Stop"
    Right click on it again and this time select "Properties"
    In the dropdown box for "Startup type", select "Disabled", then click on the "OK" button at the bottom of the window

    Next, open Task Manager (right click on TaskBar and select "Task Manager")
    Click on the "More details" dropdown (if present)
    Click on the "Startup" tab
    Scroll down and locate the "KillerNetManager" entry, right click on it and select "Disable"
    There may also be an Install Shield (with the Killer gaming K next to it), if so Right click on it and select "Disable"
    Finally, restart the system in order for the changes to take affect.
    At times the Killer Network Manager will continue to load. If so, it's usually listed in the MSINFO32...Software Environment...Startup Programs section. If it is, please try this:
    It may be that the instructions aren't stopping everything.
    In some cases, there's a program running out of the Program Files/Program Files (x86) directory.
    "c:\program files\qualcomm atheros\killer network manager\killer~1.exe" (NOTE: killer~1.exe is most likely killernetmanager.exe)
    In other cases, there's a program running out of c:\windows\installer\{Long string of letters, numbers, and dashes}\networkmanager.exe_130c27d738f34c89bddf21bcfd74b56d.exe (the long string of letters and numbers may change)

    Here's some things to try
    1) Please see if there are any entries in the Startup tab of Task Manager that are related to Qualcomm/Atheros/Killer Network Manager (and NOT the card itself) and disable them (please let us know what you find) Be careful as the wrong selection can disable the network card.
    2) Check in "msconfig" for any entries that aren't in the Startup tab of Task Manager. Let us know if you find any Qualcomm/Atheros/Killer entries there (we'll disable them differently if they are there).
    3) Locate the "c:\program files\qualcomm atheros\killer network manager\killer~1.exe" and rename the .exe to .BAD (the killer~1 is actually a filename that starts with killer and ends with .exe) There will be an error in event viewer, but it'll stop the bugger from loading.
    4) Locate the "c:\windows\installer\{Long string of letters, numbers, and dashes}\networkmanager.exe_130c27d738f34c89bddf21bcfd74b56d.exe" entry and rename the last .exe to .BAD (the long string of letters and numbers may change)

    Just FYI - here are the MSI workaround instructions: MSI USA
    MSI Afterburner (along with Riva Tuner and EVGA Precision) are known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems (it's driver is usually RTCore64.sys). Please un-install them immediately!

    If you're overclocking, please stop the overclock while we're troubleshooting. Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has been stabilized.

    All 3 of the memory dumps blame athurx.sys - a driver for your wireless TP-Link device. Please:
    - download a fresh copy of the latest, Win8.1 compatible driver for this device
    - uninstall the current driver from your system.
    - install the freshly downloaded copy of the drivers
    - monitor for further BSOD's

    Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web. Removing some drivers may make the system unstable - so if you're unable to find updates, post back for info on the one's that can/cannot be safely removed.

    If all of this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

    Sir, thanks a lot for your time analyzing my dump

    once again, thanks a lot sir
