random BSOD

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I get BSOD randomly when surfing net,watching videos on youtube, watching movies etc.

I ran a pre diagnostic test and got a error while testing ram(Its 2x2GB)
Removed one stick so now i am on 2 GB.There was no error in pre diagnostics but still i got a BSOD. Perfmon was unable to load memory and hdd counters so i did'nt attach that

Both memory dumps report wstif.sys as the cause. This is for Quick Heal AntiVirus. Please uninstall this AV and replace it with MSE until troubleshooting is finished.

try disabling Hardware Acceleration in YouTube. Right click the video and go to settings. Unchecked the box if it is.

Hardware acceleration disabled and Uninstalled Quickheal. I have been using this AV since 2 years.what could be the reason for getting BSODs now?

If you could upload a kernel memory dump (C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP)
then I might be able to tell you, could a different driver corrupted a memory page before wstif.sys accessed it so kebugcheck points at him
where it's not really his fault he basically fell into a trap sort of speak.
