    [BSOD] Critical Structure Corruption (CLFS.sys)


    Hello all,

    I've been experiencing random blue screens on my laptop for a while now. Happens about once a week and only under Windows (Linux works without a problem). It's always the same BSOD: "Critical Structure Corruption (CLFS.sys).

    My laptop is a ASUS N56VM-S4050V with 8gb 1333mhz ram, Samsung 830 256gb and Intel Centrino 6235 wifi.

    Here's a link to the DMP file and a system nfo file:

    Thanks in advance!

    Remove Glary Utilities, update drivers in red and disable Nvidia Streaming service in servoces.msc
    Run Memtest86+ for eight passes.

    Glary Utilities seemed to be the culprit. Removed it and all seems well.

    Unfortunately, the blue screen came back.

    I uninstalled Glary Utilities, disable nVidia streaming service, updated drivers and ran Memtest86, which gave no errors.

    This still seems like a RAM failure. How long did you run memtest? Could you attach report.

    I eventually chose to swap out the ram and haven't had any blue screens since. So I guess it was faulty ram after all.

    As I suspected. Thanks for letting me know.
