Windows 10: BSOD - Driver Verifier detected a violation Solved

    BSOD - Driver Verifier detected a violation

    Hi all, so in the last couple of hours, had 3 or 4 BSODs with various messages, but the last one has been driver verifier one.

    Here are the messsages:
    Kernel Security Check Failure
    System T Read E - ATIKMdag.sys
    Driver verifier has detected a violation (3 of them)

    When I got the first couple of ones, I ran the driver verifier which continued the BSODs ...I figured out how to disable it and hopefully lessen slugishness.

    I have not installed anyhting other than a translation thing on Firefox.

    I uninstalled Acronis True Image as was getting weird messages
    I unchecked "self protection" on MalwareBytes
    I did a scannow as well as chkdsk /f /r
    I ran ccleaner

    I even downloaded whocrashed, log file attached:

    mini dump file enclosed.

    PC is now quite slow, maybe due to driver verifier

    Hope someone has some guidance for me

    The last zip file you uploaded is empty. Try running DM_Log_Collector again and upload that zip. Make sure it's not empty first.

    Better, everything is there now.

    The first dump from 12/26 indicates a problem with atikmpag.sys.
    ffffc101`08b85f18  fffff806`63588118*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for atikmpag.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for atikmpag.sys
    Driver Description: ATI Video driver (remove the Catalyst Control Center and only install the Display Driver)
    Driver Update Site: Support & Drivers

    The driver you have is dated 03/12/2016.

    I suggest completely uninstalling the display driver using Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) from WagnardMobile (near bottom of page) then get the latest driver for your card and install it. Uninstall Catalysts Control Center first and do not reinstall it, see if that helps.

    The other dumps, including the Driver Verifier induced dump, don't show anything useful.
