Hello, I have experienced many different BSODs of late. I am running a fairly new (7 months) Windows 7 machine. Upon running the minidump files through WinDbg I always get the same result as follows:

I can't run the McAfee removal tool because I never installed McAfee and don't have an account. I am not sure what to try next, I have done some searching online but have come up empty. I have included my minidumps.

Many thanks.

Hello frankwhopon And Welcome To TSG!

What is the exact make and model of your system? McAfee is one of the contributing factors to bloatware in most OEM systems. Take a look at PC Decrapifier It is designed to remove bloatware from OEM systems, and is Free for personal use.

Using your favorite search engine, Frank, if you search using this string,
0xD1 drivER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL "mfefirek.sys"

you will find more information.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Here is my system info:
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 42 Stepping 7
Processor Count: 8
RAM: 5920 Mb
Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000, -1860 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 300061 MB, Free - 211924 MB; D: Total - 389739 MB, Free - 389623 MB;
Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer Inc., K53SD

The problem I have had with MCPR tool is that once you start it, but before it begins removal, it asks for your username and password since I never installed McAfee I don't have either.

rainforest123, Not an issue, all input is welcome. Most of the dump files point to McAfee. So I pointed to PC Decrapifier. I have used this app and it works. I like your posts. But with most OP's It's best to stay very simple, and then go from there.

No disrespect...

frank :
I have not experienced the name & p/w issue with McAfee's removal tool, but I haven't run it in > 3 mon. As noted in my signature, "change is constant".

I'll test it later.

Please follow Lance1's learned advice.

OK, thanks.

Have run Decrapifier, but it did not identify McAfee and allow me to remove it, don't think it's even installed anymore; there are just some scattered files leftover.

I have also downloaded and run Driver Detective, which identified a couple of drivers that were out of date. I updated those.


I guess I will wait to see if I get another BSOD.
