Windows 10: BSOD DPC Watchdog violation Solved

    BSOD DPC Watchdog violation

    I upgraded from W7 64 bit to W10 64 bit and got a bunch of BSOD's with different messages. I started cleaning out software I could live without and the occurrences of BSOD diminished greatly. I uninstalled Panda and other virus services which seemed to stabilize the computer. However occasional BSOD's were still occurring.

    A program I had called Hard Drive Sentinel did seem to jam things up, it was always last to start, waaaaay behind everything else so I uninstalled it. My BSOD's went away. Im pretty confident it was that program that was causing the BSOD's but I love that program as it has saved me from losing data on more than one occasion. So I installed an updated version and the BSOD's have started up again.

    Using the tool ya'll so graciously provided I have attached the reports. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hello rocks911 :)

    I've looked in the crash dump files for references to any drivers that might be still acting up. There were two:

    ffff8601`d4fed678  fffff80b`077130adUnable to load image PSINReg.sys, Win32 error 0n2
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for PSINReg.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for PSINReg.sys
    ffff8601`d4fed550  fffff80b`085c1b88Unable to load image farflt.sys, Win32 error 0n2
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for farflt.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for farflt.sys
    The first is from the Panda antivirus - it would seem that you were not completely successful in uninstalling it. The Panda Security website should have some advice or tools for complete uninstalling.

    The second is from Malwarebytes Anti-ransomware and it could be that this is also a problem.

    Thanks for the quick help and reply. Actually I reinstalled both Panda and Malwarebytes. When I had so many problems upgrading to W10 I uninstalled several apps including Panda, Malwarebytes and Hard Disk Sentinel.

    After the PC stabilized I reinstalled Panda and Malwarebytes and waited two days. I didnt experience any problems in thos two days, no BSOD's so I then installed Hard Disk Sentinel today. I started getting BSOD's after installing Hard Disk Sentinel.

    Its curious that the installation of HDS caused a BSOD where Panda and Malwarebytes was the problem. I think because HDS works directly with the hard drives on the computer most anything can happen, including anitvirus programs going haywire.

    I uninstalled HDS and have had no problems since. Just a shame, I loved that app.

    Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it
