    BSOD While Installing/Updating Games in Steam

    Recently I've gotten BSOD while installing or updating games in steam. I have noticed that the preallocation takes much longer than usual if it will BSOD during the install.

    Hi StringSaber,

    While going over your logs, I noticed entries related to piracy.
    I would like to ask you to get rid of everything piracy related on your system, I am not saying your operating system is pirated, only that you have software installed that is pirated.

    Why is pirated software a problem?

    • Piracy is against the policy of this forum, and against my own policy
    • It is unknown what could've come with it, such programs often have a way of letting other software come into your system and who knows what they'll do.
    • Since it is unknown what could've come with such programs it is unknown what the behavior of your system will be and any potential solutions may, as a result, backfire and make your system's stability worse.

    Please remove everything piracy related on your system so we can start troubleshooting your system.
    Please consider this as a warning, I may refrain from providing support if I see piracy related entries in new logs.

    Hello axe0,
    Thank you for the kind warning. I believe that I have now removed all pirated software on my computer (there was a crack of guitar pro 7). Please let me know if there are any other pirated software that I missed, and I will be happy to remove them. I now primarily use this computer for gaming and all games were legally obtained on steam.

    Here are my new log files.

    I bought it used. The system should be about 2 years old. (system two, not the thinkpad).
