    BSOD at lock screen on startup - Windows 8.1 x64

    Hi, I have relatively recently built a new computer, and it seemed to be settling, until I noticed I was getting BSODs at the lock screen.

    It seems to happen every start-up, if left at the lock screen for long enough (Usually a couple of minutes). If I log in as soon as the lock screen comes up, it logs in fine, no BSOD. I can then lock, and leave the computer, do anything. It's only on the first lock screen.

    Following a guide elsewhere I ran sfc /scannow in cmd, Which lead me to this thread: http://www.sysnative.com/forums/wind...s-8-8-1-a.html.
    After running SFCFix, which seemed to do the first method suggested in the thread, as seen in the log file.
    I am at a loss, and this forum seemed helpful.

    I attempted to attach one of the BSOD dmp files, the log from SFC, and SFCFix, however the file size limits only allowed the SFCFix file to be attached?
    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place.

    I found the BSOD posting instructions, so figured I would follow those too.

    I have attached the output from Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2.
    The screenshot, is the output of running perfmon /report in an admin cmd.

    My Specs are:
    Running Windows 8.1 64bit, that I originally installed from a full retail version.
    The system is now about 2 months old, as is the OS.

    CPU: i7 - 4770
    GPU: Gainward GTX760, and a Gigabyte GT 610
    Mobo: Gigabyte z87-HD3
    PSU: Seasonic G-650W

    System Manufacturer: Custom Built.

    I've moved your thread to the proper forum as this is a BSOD problem and not a Windows Update problem.

    All of the attached DMP files are of the DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION (133) bug check.

    This bug check indicates that the DPC watchdog executed, either because it detected a single long-running deferred procedure call (DPC), or because the system spent a prolonged time at an interrupt request level (IRQL) of DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.

    It looks like the Microsoft TCP/IP driver and an enqueue routine is in a loop/holding onto a lock. Something 3rd party is very likely causing NETBIOS conflicts.

    1. Remove and replace AVG with Windows 8's built-in Windows Defender for temporary troubleshooting purposes as it's very likely causing NETBIOS conflicts:

    AVG removal - http://www.avg.com/us-en/utilities

    Windows Defender (how to turn on after removal) - Windows Defender - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    2. RTCore64.sys is listed and loaded which is RivaTuner/EVGA Precision/MSI Afterburner (known BSOD issues w/Windows 7, 8, and 8.1). Please uninstall ASAP! If you were using MSI to control your fans, there are many working alternatives such as SpeedFan.

    3. Do you have either - Razer GameBooster, Corsair Link, or RealTemp installed?

    Hi, and thanks for the help.

    I removed AVG.
    After doing that, and stopping AB from starting with windows it seems to have fixed the issue.

    I am not confident in relying on Windows Defender. I guess I'll look into using a different AV.

    I use RealTemp, though it doesn't get installed.

    Glad to hear it stopped, thanks for the update.

    I've marked it as solved.

    I don't blame you for feeling unprotected, it's your system and your choice. I recommend ESET, and I'd say away from avast!, AVG, Norton, and McAfee. I have gripes with Kaspersky, especially in 8.1 (causes pool corruption quite often on 8.1).
