Windows 7: The First Blue Screen
Posted by: Stephen Wildstrom on October 26, 2009
My main Windows 7 system, which has been rock solid since I installed the shipping version of the operating system in early August, presented me with my first Blue Screen of Death this morning. The system had been acting a bit cranky for an hour or so when it suddenly crashed. The BSOD message identified the offending component as BHDrvx86.sys and a quick bit of Web research showed that to be a device driver that is part of Norton Internet Security 2009. After a reboot, everything seems to be OK, but if I get another crash with the same culprit, it will be adios Norton.
