    When I connect to the network, I receive BSOD on Win7 professional 64-bit SP1.. If I plug out my ethernet cable, the windows are working fine - as soon as I plug in the cable, I receive BSOD with Bug Check code 0x000000c5 - DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL.. BlueScreenView software claims it's caused by driver ntosrnl.exe and caused by address ntoskrnl.exe+7cc40

    Here are things I already tried so far without luck:
    - tested ram (memtest86 as well as win7 internal memory test).. it's fine
    - updated ethernet card driver
    - changed ethernet card with a new one
    - disabled my antivirus software (Avast)
    - uninstalled my antivirus software
    - restored windows using system restore to 4 different restore points (one even 2 months old)
    - chkdsk .. it's fine
    - googled everything regarding this issue (most users found solution that it was antivirus issue.. but not here, since I unistalled it already)

    The thing is that this also happens if I boot into "safe mode with networking" (while plain "safe mode" works fine). As soon as computer finishes booting I get blue screen...

    You can find my minidump attached. Has anybody any clue?

    I am getting the same exact thing. It's definitely network-related. If I use Wifi the error is the same but includes nwifi.sys. Also added a new account to see if it was account related but had the same results. Anyone have ideas?

    Also should say it's not BIOS related. Another SSD with Win7Pro in same computer boots and works fine. Could be boot-sector.

    Fixing the MBR had no effect.

    Try the following (it's the only idea I have on this short of a reinstall of Windows) ...

    (From a JohnWill post)

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

    Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

    Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    Thx for the good idea. I forgot that one. But no change. Frustrating.
