    Possible USB headset related BSOD? DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION


    My computer has crashed 4 or 5 times in the past few days. I think it's something to do with me fiddling with USB cables.
    I installed and ran the free version of Driver Booster after reading that updating my drivers might help.

    Hi axe0,

    Can you explain, please? What "bypass" or "piracy" are you referring to?

    And how do I remove the drivers that Driver Booster installed? Or rather, how do I figure out which they are?

    Thanks.

    Every crack that is on your system I am refering to.

    Do you have a restore point prior driver booster? If so, use it.
    I can't tell you for a way to figure out what driver you have updated, I don't know any if there are any.
    Was better if you noted it somewhere.
