BSOD with latest regular and beta update

Recommended Posts

After years of running smoothly, I belive Malwarebytes has been causing my BSOD with error message inacessable boot drive.

I literally can do nothing to get back into windows at this point.  I have to use a system backup and restore my entire hard drive.  

After doing a disk image restore on my PC I keep Malwarebytes running and It updates.  I reset the PC and all over again the same bsod.

I then installed your latest beta that was released today Jan 30, 2019 and that too causes the same bsod.

Can you help me with this?

I'm doing an entire fresh install of Windows because of this and I'm afraid to install Malwarebytes as my anti malware software.

If need be and you need some logs, before I install malwarebytes I can do another system image so if malwarebytes causing the bsod infinite loop bsod I can always go back using the system image.

Just let me know if you need logs and how and where to get the programs that collect the logs.

Hi David,

Please provide the log file mentioned in the post above. Instructions on how to generate it are provided.

We will also need a dump file to confirm if Malwarebytes is indeed the cause.

  • %systemroot%\MEMORY.dmp
  • Contents of the %systemroot%\Minidump folder

If MEMORY.dmp is not being generated after the blue screen, let me know and I'll provide instructions on how to enable creation.
