Hi Bill,

All of the attached dump files are of the SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e) bugcheck.

This indicates that a system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch.

We seem to be dealing with a variety of driver issues here, so let's analyze this closely:

In a *1000007E bugcheck, the most important thing (generally) is the 1st parameter. In your case, the 1st parameter is always c0000005 which indicates an access violation occurred.

If we run an .exr:

0: kd> .exr 0xffffffff8291646c
ExceptionAddress: 82c85781 (nt!__InterlockedIncrement+0x00000005)
   ExceptionCode: c0000005 (Access violation)

^^ See?

Now that we ran the .exr, let's go one step further and run a !thread to get the call stack:

Starting from bottom going upward, we have various bcmwl6.sys calls which is the
Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter driver. Going upward some more, we reach an hssdrv6.sys call which is the Hotspot Shield Routing Driver (more than likely the cause here). I have seen it and solved many cases in which it was the cause of the crashes. Let's continue though.... if we go upward some more, we reach a few AMPPAL.sys calls which is the Intel® Centrino® Bluetooth 3.0 + High Speed Virtual Adapter driver.


Overall, as I said, Hotspot Shield is more than likely causing conflicts here. I recommend removal for troubleshooting purposes ASAP.

Thank you all so much! Patrick I owe you my greatest gratitude.
I uninstalled HSS and restarted but it didn't work, however I system restore'd and it worked after that point and I'm now happily surfing the web.

This website is awesome and so are the people, I shall definitely use this website before I take it to the local repair man and get charged £50-£100.

Thanks so much,
