Question BSOD - stop code 0x000000f4
Since 9/1 I have been getting BSOD at least once a day after 8 or so hours of operation. I might be doing something or doing nothing. It doesn't seem to matter. The latest stop code was 0x000000f4(0x00000003, 0x85288da0, 0x85288f14, 0x80604418) This has happened 11 times since 9/1. Never the same parameters and three of them were 0x0000008e but the last 7 were 0x000000f4. I have run memtest 7 times. No errors. Ran Spybot, AdAware, full dos scan anti virus, dumped a number of trash programs just because I could. Even ran two registry cleanup programs. Searched MSDN for help, the answer may be there but I got lost pretty quickly. Searched Google and ended the same way except I found you guys. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am operating a Dell 8300 3GHZ - 1 G ram - 3 HDs total 400 GB - 2 17" monitors and Win XP SP2.

Post some minidump files. Look in c:\windows\minidump. Zip up 5 or 6 of the most recent ones.

Maybe a hard drive problem. Run chkdsk /r and make a new pagefile - instructions (second half of page). Set both min and max to 2048mb. Post any new dump files.

From the minidump it appears to be an "insufficient resource" issue. This could be ram or disk space.

Have you tried doing a "system restore" to a date prior to the problem? This usually resolves all but hardware errors.

They can be undone if not helpful.

Run msconfig and select "launch system restore".

By the way this belongs to PC Tools (spyware doctor?) and is a "filter driver" of some kind.

I'd get rid of it.

For 3 hd's and other devices you need a good power supply and good cooling overall (always needed). Thus check if all fans are working, check the temperature of your processor (i.e. in BIOS), and check if your PSU is above 400W (a bare minimum 20A or more on +12V). Additionally, run check disk and defragment your system drive (always helpful). If no improvement, try removing some devices. May also try to boot to a different partition (either Windows or Linux or even DOS - to determine if the problem is hard drive related).

Maybe iksysflt.sys is the problem. The link below has exactly the same crash. Uninstall Spyware Doctor.

Wish to thank all you guys for your kind interest in my problem.I have tried to heed all of the suggestions so far. Sent a mini dump, zeroed and reset page file to 2G, ran chkdsk /f/r, Ran memtest 4 days ago (7 Passes w/out error), defragged 3 HDs, removed spyware doctor (iksysflt.sys), also some other spyware programs. Only one left, Counterspy. Cleaned and defragged registry. As far as load is considered I have been running 3 HDs since march of 05 with no problem. The box is blown clean monthly (hair dryer) And now I must wait, the problem happens after 8 to 12 hours of uptime and due to all my actions has not operated that long sinceTuesday. I again want to thank all of you and now we will wait.

My problem seems to be solved...
I am now into the fourth day without a BSOD. My opinion is the sys file from Spy Doctor was the source of the problem. All other actions with the exception of zeroing the page file are regular actions. My fingers remain crossed but after three and a half days the problem is probably licked. It is with great appreciation that I thank all of you guys for helping this old dubber. Let us now consider this thread closed.
