    IRQL Not Less or Equal Blue Screen


    Hey everyone,

    So recently I have been having issues where my laptop will randomly go to a blue screen and the error message "IRQL not Less or Equal..." Sometimes it will not show up until a half and hour, sometimes it starts in 15-20 min. It is just really random and it just restarts my computer inconveniently. ( Also, Looked at other forums, could it be Avast? Never had problems with it in the past)

    Anyways, I have Attached my SFC Scan from the program recommended... Also When i use SFC/Scannow on Command Prompt I am told " Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Detailes are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Fir example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios.

    I would appreciate any advice/help to fix this, Thank you!

    Hi KeybladeOfHeart & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    Unfortunately, the ZIP file attached by you is empty. Please let the tool run for atleast 15 minutes or till it says that it has finished working ^_^.

    Attach the freshly generated SF Diagnostic ZIP file with your next post.

    According to the dump files, the GlarySoft Utilities driver has been the probable cause. Please uninstall this ASAP and see if this solves your problem or not ^_^.

    In case of any further problems, please do not hesitate to post back here ^_^.
