utorrent causing BSOD: Possible tcpip.sys irql problem?


Recommended Posts


I have been having these random "IRQL not less than or equal to" bluescreens on a fully patched vista ultimate 32 bit, 2 gb ram, core 2 duo e6600, nvidia geforce 8800 gts, marvell yukon onboard gigabit lan cards (on an asus p5b), whenever i run utorrent for any significant amount of time.

The dump is given below:

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an

interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually

caused by drivers using improper addresses.

If kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.

I have had it for quite a few months, have updated drivers and uninstalled/changed firewalls, av etc. It has to date never happened in front of me for some reason, only when the computer was idle (and no, i have no scheduled checks/scans apart from vista's typical ones) . I am aware that utorrent is a user mode program..and cannot cause bsod's, but the problem only occurs when i use it. Any tips/advice?

My card is an onboard marvell yukon card that has the latest updated drivers (which are basically the same as ..well, what it come with) and never gave me problems up until a few months ago. And i do not have any internet security suite, i rely on safe browsing practices and a router hardware firewall...i just replaced my Av from avg 7.5 to avira ....so...
