    CRITICAL_STRUCTURE and other BSODs


    Hi,

    I've had to deal with BSODs for ages, and every couple of months I try to find a source. I've used WinDbg on every dump that I've been able to generate and found little real information. Recently I thought I'd got lucky when I used Driver Verifier when it flagged both the SoftEther VPN and Avast driver, but soon after I got the CRITICAL STRUCTURE CORRUPTION BSOD.

    I'm currently running verifier to try and force another BSOD out of the system in case there is a driver problem, but the issue has been there so long that I'm fairly certain it's a hardware problem. I tested the RAM with memtest86, no problem ever occurring during the time I had it running. The only other pair of RAM sticks I have are confirmed faulty, so not an option to swap.

    I've replaced the motherboard 3 times over this computer's lifetime (which is about 5 years now) and this is the second CPU. The PSU was also replaced at one point, from a generic model to an OCZ. I have no reason to believe that there is not enough power supplied to the computer, as it's a 650W model with a single graphics card.

    Below is my system collection:

    P.S. Consider using environment variables to extrapolate the location of the desktop rather than hard-coding C:/Users/[user]/Desktop, as I have it stored on another drive and was annoying to find.

    Thanks

So based on my crashdumps (ignore anything older than 2015, as those BSODs were caused by Nvidia drivers in my old build) it seems the issue is tied to CI.dll and anti-virus software. I'll probably run malwarebytes in safe mode as well as scannow from boot to check for viruses for that. Where...
