CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION

TheZodiac asked on
Hi, I have been having bsod from this error at least like 10 times a day. It is extremely annoying and I have no idea how to fix it. My computer is fairly new, there have been no problems leading up to this and I have not installed anything new recently. It just came out of the blue. It might have started happening after a recent windows update but I am still not sure if thats the cause. If any one can help me I would greatly appreciate it. Here are my minidump files.

Hi,

All of the attached DMP files are of the CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION (109) bug check.

This indicates that the kernel has detected critical kernel code or data corruption.

There are generally two causes for this bug check:
  1. A driver has inadvertently, or deliberately, modified critical kernel code or data. Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) and later versions of Windows for x64-based computers do not allow the kernel to be patched except through authorized Microsoft-originated hot patches. For more information, see Patching Policy for x64-based Systems.
  2. A hardware corruption occurred. For example, the kernel code or data could have been stored in memory that failed.

------------------------------------------


1. Remove and replace Avira with Windows 8's built-in Windows Defender as Avira is very likely causing corruption:

2. AsrAppCharger.sys - Tue May 10 04:28:46 2011


^^ AsRock App Charger, know to cause BSOD's. Remove all AsRock software ASAP as it's known to be buggy 'bloatware'.


3. cfosspeed6.sys - Wed May 29 12:47:24 2013


^^ cFosSpeed - The Internet Accelerator. Remove this ASAP. I have solved many BSOD issues, especially on Windows 8, in which this was the culprit and/or caused underlying conflicts.


4. sptd.sys is listed and loaded in your modules list; SCSI Pass Through Direct Host - Daemon Tools (known BSOD issues with Win 7 and 8). Please remove it ASAP with the uninstaller tool - http://www.duplexsecure.com/en/downloads
