crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: mbamchameleon.sys (mbamchameleon+0x754B)
Bugcheck code: 0x3B (0xC0000005, 0x40000000500, 0xFFFFD00021C8A070, 0x0)

product: Malwarebytes Chameleon

Bug check description: This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: mbamchameleon.sys (Malwarebytes Chameleon Protection Driver, Malwarebytes Corporation).

Hi. . .


2 BSODs did name MBAM as the probable cause, but the 3rd had bugcheck 0x124 - WHEA - Windows Hardware Error Architecture,  a/k/a Machine Check Exception.


Unknown hardware failure is the cause.


The WHEA record shows an issue with Processor 3:

Error         : DCACHEL2_DRD_ERR (Proc 3 Bank 7)  Status      : 0xfe20000000041136  Address     : 0x00000000cb800000  Misc.       : 0x00000030e6000086

See if Prime95 yields any clues - http://www.sysnative.com/forums/hardware-tutorials/3908-prime95-hardware-stress-testing.html


Make sure you're running the most recent version of MBAM.


Regards. . .

You might want to try doing a clean removal of MBAM and see if a new clean, fresh install provides better support for the Self Protection driver.


Please uninstall your current version of MBAM and reinstall the latest version using the process here. MBAM Clean Removal Process 2x


Thank you
