    BSOD, Kernel Security Check Failure (Win 8.1)


    Yesterday, during a game I got a BSOD.
    I've gotten this BSOD a few times in the past, though this was only 2nd on my fresh OS installation.

    I re-installed Win 8.1 64-bit couple months ago and before that I used to get the same 'Kernel Security Check Failure'-BSOD quite frequently.

    Mostly it annoys me because it happens for no reason and randomly, instead of when I'm doing something certain.

    No dump files attached, please zip them up and attach them in your next post.

    I only have a memory dump file, close to 1GB in size and I can't see minidump file anywhere; unless it's not in the root of OS?

    Right, so like with Win 7.
    It never creates that folder after BSOD, though, it's been like this ever since I upgraded to Win 8 years ago.

    So I don't have that folder, hence no minidump either.

    Get all available Windows Updates, I see Razer service loaded. If using any Razer devices, please detach them and uninstall their drivers for the time we are troubleshooting.
    What antivirus software are you using?

    Windows is up to date as of just now.
    I use Window's own AV, most often paid AV's offer nothing but headache and false positives, better off without that crap.

    I do regular scans with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and clean up my registry from time to time with CCleaner.

    OK. How are your crashes as of now? Again, I'm sorry. I was having network trouble.

    I haven't had one for 6d.
    Though I'd dare to say it's more of a luck rather than 'problem solved' case.

    I also figured it tends to happen easier when I'm streaming games, though I have streamed 5 out of 6 days for 6-10h.
    A week ago I remember two instances when I had a BSOD (same error code) whilst streaming.

    Did Windows Updates help?
    As much I'd like to believe so (hey, that required barely any work!) I have a feeling I will be greeted with a blue screen eventually.

    I shall keep you posted.

    If it occurs again, please generate a fresh report. What AV software are you using? What FW? Are connecting through VPN? Do you use VMware or VBox?
