    BSOD Kernal security check failure (or something similar)


    Hi,

    I found a previous post already listing this problem that was solved, but it was specific to the case in question and didn't help me.

    My PC is brand new and put together by a licensed and professional company. I've personally installed two DVD burners in it, but one of them I never got to work. I haven't removed it yet, but I believe the BSOD started before that.

    I get these BSOD very frequently. Every few hours I would say.

    They've never been this frequent before.

    I've added the file you require to assist me. I hope I did everything right. I also filled out my specs on the website.

    I hope someone can be of assistance.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello! Thanks for using EightForums as the forum of your choice for help.

    I am currently away from my laptop and when I'm back home, (Typing this on an iPad) I will review the accompanied file.

    Also, what exactly are you doing when the BSOD's occur? Can you take a picture when the BSOD(s) occur?

    It's perfectly random I'm afraid (from my perspective at least - I gather that there is probably a reason it keeps happening that I am unaware of). There is no forewarning, so I cannot take a picture.

    It happens sometimes when I'm watching a movie, somtimes when I'm browsing the web, sometimes I just leave the PC running for a while and come back to that.

    One thing that is consistent is that it says it will restart for me once it has reached 100% in data gathering, and it never does, so a manual reboot is required.

    Thank you for your reply though. I look forward to hearing back when you've had time to go over the file.

    Here one thing: You should start using MBAM (malwarebytes anti-malware) and you should also use an AV better than Windows Defender. Use Vipre or AVG or Norton.

    Have you installed anything before the BSOD's started to occur?

    (I just got back and there are a lot of logs you provided so it'll take me a while to read through all of them.)

    I didn't get notified that you had replied. I do use malware bytes. As for anti-virus, I'll take it into consideration.

    The blue screens of death didn't just "suddenly start", they seem to have more or less been there since I unpacked the PC and installed windows on it.

    The kernel security check failure BSDOD's are new though, and I have no idea why they happen so frequently.

    I haven't installed anything new in quite a while. Hardware or software.

    This PC is mainly a means of entertainment. I use my laptop for working and browsing, this machine mostly just runs PC games. Of course I uninstall and install occasionally.

    Attachment 63877Hello!
    I'm going through your files right now and I've noticed some AMD drivers... Odd
    I'll read more tomorrow as it is night time here and BTW here is something I would like you to run (It'll help with a possible cause. If the suspected cause (corrupt files) is not the reason why, no harm will be done either way)

    AMD you say? Well, now that you mention it, I reused my old hard drive, and I believe my old PC might have had some AMD components.... Yes, the graphics card. The hard drive isn't actually installed, but the PC came with a hard drive tray.

    I have formatted it though, and it shows no files left.

    So... I ran your program, and it worked fine, but it didn't save any logs or anything. It just said to "tell you the results". I uhh... Have to admit, I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to say. The program ran, I had to click a key to continue a few times. Beyond that, I didn't really notice anything out of the ordinary.

    I forgot the log part :P

    Well anyways no corrupt files were found?

    Maybe there is a defected part like a bad ram stick. Or it's the old AMD drivers conflicting with Intel's drivers.

    My computer savyness ends with extremely basic javascripting.

    I must confess, I didn't understand much of what was going on with the file you sent me. I'm sorry!
    If there was a corrupt file, I didn't know how to look for it.

    The file took rather long to run, and gave me very limited feedback in text.

    At one point it said it was denied access to something, and something about a corrupt file it couldn't fix, I think.

    I'm not 100% sure though.

    If you have a version of the program that saves a log, that might be preferable.

    You need to run it as admin so the DISM commands can work. I remember I implemented some code to put the log files onto the desktop.
