8.0/8.5 enterprise BSOD issues??

Hello!

I have a user that has been experiencing occasional BSODs (approx. twice a week) for some time now. when i took over his "case" i had him enable crash dumps, and i have collected several of them to analyze.

as a preface, i am not experienced at using the windbg software or analyzing minidumps, but they seem to be pointing to mcafee system files as causes of the crashes. they either mention mfehidk.sys as the probable cause, or else ntfs.sys as the probable cause with scan32.exe as the process name. once i suspected mcafee might be invovled we updated him from 8.0 erp to 8.5, and the issue persisted.

i have read about issues with daemon tools and BSODs, but he does not have that application. can i post the minidumps, or does anyone have any suggestions?

Although its not recommended can you try removing both 8.0 and 8.5 and see if the problems persist without the AV installed.

i just had our primary notes server go down this morning with the same mfehidk.sys file reported in the dumpfiles.

VSE 8.5
Patch 5
Engine 5200
DAT 5310

AntiSpyware Module is installed as well.

Edit: this is a win2k3 server R2 enterprise SP2

If you dont have the known daemon tools issue then you are best off cranking up MERE tool and logging a case with corporate support

should have mentioned in my previous post that i have already submitted a service request. waiting to hear back from them, as i have the dumpfile/mer log ready to go.

if anything interesting comes out of it, i will post it to this thread.

that would tend to indicate it was an old version of the mfehidk.sys driver still installed then.

you would def want to remove VSE then check for old versions of

MfeAVFK.sys
MfeBOPK.sys
mfehidk.sys
MfeRKDK.sys
mfetdik.sys

and remove these bvefore reinstalling the latest VSE
