  1. Alright, I guess I will have to disable scheduled scans and unmount the RAM disks before running a manual scan. Do you need any more information from me incase you want to investigate this further? I realize you cannot support every combination of software but perhaps this unexpected use case exposed a bug in MBAM. What if malware made a RAM disk to cause MBAM to crash the system whilst scanning, and with it preventing MBAM from removing the malware? Just a thought...
  2. To clarify, I am not running MBAM from a RAMDisk, I use a RAMDisk as a temp directory and MBAM chokes on it while doing its heuristics scanning magic. MBAM itself is installed on my SSD.
  3. Hi, Ever since I upgraded MBAM to version 2 ( specifically) I have experienced BSODs during the heuristics section of any scan. After a bit of messing around I narrowed it down to a possible conflict with RAMDisk. RAMDisk is a piece of software that will allow you to create a virtual drive that is stored in memory. I use this virtual drive as the TEMP/TMP directory for speed and to avoid unnecessary wear and tear of my SSD. When this virtual drive is mounted and I run any type of scan in MBAM it will generate a BSOD (PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA caused by MBAMSwissArmy.sys) when it
  4. I seem to be experiencing the same issue as OP. I just updated to MBAM version and it will give me a BSOD during the scanning process. This happens consistently and seems to occur when the scanner is wrapping up the scanning of files and starting the heuristics scanning. BSOD screen looks similar to that of OP, some pagefault related to MBAMSwissArmy.sys. I'm running (fully patched) Win7 Pro, 64 bit. I'm not using TrueCrypt. I can provide crash dumps and other details if required.
