Will CMF stop my Blue Screen Of Death? [RESOLVED]
« on: May 02, 2008, 04:22:25 AM »
I bought a new Dell PC (XP) last year. The only thing I installed on it after getting it out of the box was AOL9.0 software.

The whole time Ive had the computer, everyone once in a while, maybe .... once every month or two, I would get a BSOD. They all happened the same way:

AOL (dial up) uses like 7 steps to connect to the internet.

1. initializing modem
2. dialing
3. ... um something
4. something
5. ugh ...
6. checking password
7. connected to internet

So I would open the software, type in my password, click connect, and it would proceed as follows;

1. initializing modem
2.dialing 

here it would start the 2nd step - dialing, and immediately go to a BSOD.

um ... I have a screen shot somewhere ......

I use AOL at home. You need to upgrade your version to AOL 9.0 VR Just goto www.aol.com/downloads  I think your version of AOL isn't setup correctly so download and install the new version and you shouldn't have any more problems.

(I apologize as I cannot get it clearer, its the only screenshots I have)

So I get the BSOD, turn off computer, turn back on, get the error report pop up, then everythings fine for ... you know, until it did it again (usually another few weeks or so - once it did it again immediately). (Using computer daily)

Would Comodo Memory Firewall stop this?

I have been using CMF for about ... maybe a month now and havent had a BSOD while using it, but its still too soon to tell if its preventing it or not.

Also, I noticed that the files were a bit different.

computererror jpg is as follows:

C:\DOCUME~1\LirvA\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER71b9.dir00\Mini062607-02.dmp
C:\DOCUME~1\LirvA\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER71b9.dir00\sysdata.xml


and the screenshot SameFckingError jpg is as follows:

C:\DOCUME~1\LirvA\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER275a.dir00\Mini070307-01.dmp
C:\DOCUME~1\LirvA\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER275a.dir00\sysdata.xml


Is this something that CMF will prevent?

Why havent I checked into this before now?

Several reasons, all perfectly acceptable.

Im an idiot.
Im lazy
Im a notorious procrastinator
it always recovered and didnt seem to do any harm so I didnt bother screwing with it.

Opinions?

As I said, Ive been using CMF for about a month and so far so good, but its still too soon to tell.

Any help is much appreciated.

C Memory Firewall Protects you from Buffer Overflow Attacks and exposes shoddy programing. If CMF had stopped your BSOD's there would have been an Alert  of some sort.

Is there anything in your windows log file when this happens?

"For users on XP, there is no need to upgrade to 9.0VR at this time, as AOL 9.0 Security Edition SE provides a comparable experience."

Probably not necessary to download the VR. .....

There are some improvements in the connection etc with the VR Release! Including the removal of that AOL Buddy at the top of the screen... I recommend it as it's proving more reliable than the last version. A little less intrusive though I still hate AOL.

I couldnt agree with you more, sir.

Every day I become less and less satisfied with AOL. The internet connection is always crap. They lack integrity - releasing user's search records. And their god damn software borders on adware.

I may give the VR a try.

Go with AOL 9 VR and use it only for your emails, or not if you want. You now can retrieve them using Outlook etc. I only use it for emails and the rest of the time through Firefox as my router is set up correctly so I don't need to run AOL to connect to the internet. (Just enter Username / Password then AOL as "Service name" and www.aol.com as "Domain" remembering to change the MTU to 1450.

You might be able to setup your Broadband modem which is a bit like a router.
