Well, I'm constantly getting the BSOD of death.
I went to the Event Viewer and it says "The npkcrypt service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the path specified."

This npkcrypt process came from mabinogi the MMO from nexon.
The folder it was located at couldn't be deleted because the process was running although I haven't had the game on my comp since it began closed beta like I don't know how many weeks ago. So I terminated the process permanently and then deleted the folder. I was BSOD free for hours and then it hit me again with the same error.
Any idea on wtf is going on?

I think you should have just did a regular uninstall of the application, can you reinstall it then uninstall it again and see if that resolves the issue?

The game i mean with the reinstall. There is some reference that was broken and now you are getting the bsod because for whatever reason, the missing reference is panicking the kernel.

The game has been uninstalled for weeks.
Why would it be acting up now?

I mean a reference to the linking process. Once you blew that file that contained the process, it seemed to cause problems but if you reinstall it should re establish that link. Then uninstall again and see if the process remains. It might have even been an early beta glitch. I know this may be frustrating but it may resolve the issue.

Well I installed it again and found an uninstall for npkcmsvc.
Thought that was the end of it, now It's still BSOD'ing without any errors in the event viewer.

Was my ram from a previous crash.
It was overclocked beyond its limit.
Downclocking it solved the problem, yay!
