    BSOD "Reference by pointer" randomly

    Recently i've been having a lot of BSODs with the message "reference_by_pointer". A different message has occured but it's mostly that one. At first i tought it had something to do with google chrome, as most of the times i would be opening or closing chrome at the exact moment of the BSOD, but that might have been coincidence as it also occured while playing overwatch a few times.
    I have ran the windows memory test and it said there were no errors found, so i guess my ram shouldn't be the issue.
    Ive been having the BSODs a while now, but now it has come to the point that it at least happens once every day to the point that it's driving me insane.
    I have added the zip with the dmp log, hopefully any of you guys can see what the problem might be.
    Thanks in advance!

    2 dumpfiles blames networx.sys . Please update or remove.

    1 dumpfiles is machine check exception.
    WHEA error for a MCE fault
    This could point to hardware problem with your CPU but more often also motherboard software and monitoring software can cause this kind of BSODs.
    In this case it's an internal unclassified error, which means it's not publicly documented (which is ironic given it's "unclassified"). However, yes, it's clear you're dealing with an internal CPU fault and not one that could be generated by bus issues or any other external factor other than heat and voltage. Though make dead sure motherboard software isn't interfering; sometimes mobo software will generate CPU faults of this sort because of bugs in their CPU drivers.
    Other than that, no, there's really nothing else you can retrieve from this.

    source: WHEA error for a MCA fault
    Update or remove
    Speedfan and Hardwareinfo
    And the Asus Utilities you are using.

    The other dumpfiles are all
      BugCheck 18, {0, ffffe706edce6dd0, 2, ffffffffffffffff}
    Probably caused by : afd.sys ( afd!AfdFreeEndpointResources+6e0b )
    Driver Description: Ancillary Function Driver for WinSock
    Driver Update Site: Windows Update
    This is network related

    Your softether vpn software is from 2015

    Also your logitech software is from 2012

    Update your malware bytes program.

    Thanks allot lifetec!!
    will try to update the programs and remove if necessary.
    Can these programs also cause problems if they are not running? Because i almost never have speedfan or hardwareinfo running, i just occasionally open them to monitor some stuff.
    I do also have my cpu overclocked, it has been running stable like this for years tho. But if BSODs still persist i'll also remove the overclock
