    Every once in a while whilst surfing the web, I get a BSOD citing tcpip.sys related errors.
    Most recently, I was browsing through google maps in street view when the BSOD came on and forced my machine to restart.

    Any ideas why this happens every now and then?

    I have Comodo Firewall + AVG installed and windows firewall disabled.
    Running on XP Pro SP3 with all the latest updates.

    I attached the full minidump in this post, please check it if neccessary thanks.

    Here is the snapshot of the most recent dump of the BSOD taken by BlueScreenView

    You could have Winsock2 corruption, follow the advice given on the link below, from Microsoft. Post back if this doesnt' help or even if it does. :)


    You can also bypass reading the info from the link above, and click the link below to download "winsock fix"

    Thanks for your reply.

    I tried both tests and have attached the results in this post. I do not know if I actually have winsock corruption because most of the tests pass including winsock's. However I failed the NetBT test, not too sure what is that though.
    Using the Msinfo32 test, I found more than 10 entries in the list.

    Can you analyse the results I posted and determine if I should attempt to fix my winsock? Because I have read about the risks involving it, which might affect Comodo Firewall & AVG.

    And on a side note, sometimes the messages I sent out on windows live messenger do not get received by my contacts. This usually happens on a random basis too. I am not sure if both problems are related though.

    Comodo would be my first guess for that type of networking error and it appears confirmed by the bugcheck (inspect.sys=Comodo). Try uninstalling and returning to the Windows firewall for a test.

    By the way yk51x86.sys is for your Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet Controller drivers -- if not the most current you should update them as this presence in this part of the bugcheck can indicate a problem with them and compatibility with Comodo.

    Hmm I guess you are right as my previous two similar BSODs happened whilst comodo while running in the background.
    My Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet Controller drivers are already updated to the latest version before the BSODs came on.

    So I guess I will stick to Windows Firewall for now since Comodo seems to have an incompatibility issue with my network card drivers.

    Thanks very much!
