I posted a msg awhile ago about this problem. I had a PC built and it
seemed for as long as I could remember, I was getting that dreadful
BSOD. I checked the drivers. I checked the hardware. I opened up the
PC and reseeded my audio card. I rolled back non-compliant drivers.
Loaded tons of troubleshooting software. Nothing worked...

send an error report to Microsoft. It pointed me in the right
So I wanted to share this with those having similar problems...
My BSOD originated with my firewall, Black Ice. The version I was
using was 2.something. I upgraded to 3.6 and it's been a week of
crash-free usage and now I'm excited by the potential of what this
puppy can do.
....and I plan on making it meaner and faster...
So for those of you going through this tribulation, check your
firewall. Update it.
Hopefully, this helps someone out there.
