    BSOD when connecting Hotspot Shield (or any other VPN)


    I have already contacted AnchorFree about this, but their support sucks

    When I connect Hotspot Shield, I always get a BSOD (DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION or KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE). I sometimes get it right after the connecting process is finished, and sometimes a minute later. Why is this?

    Please help me


    EDIT: Problem solved by updating. The previous version was advertised as Win 8 compatible, but only the newest one actually works. Shame on you, AnchorFree
