BSOD occuring when waking up from sleep mode - NIS2010
Can somebody shed light or help me?
While I am enjoying NIS one thing bothers me a lot. Sometimes when waking up my VAIO from sleep I get a BSOD and computer restarts itself. I tried to track the crash down but I didn't find any rule to replicate the crash. It occurs randomly, it means that some wake ups are OK but suddenly next one initiate crash. However one thing is sure, it never happened before I installed NIS2010. ESET was uninstalled using their removing tool, then remnant files and registry were cleaned, so I am sure that all traces of ESET went off. NIS is my only security installed. My VAIO specification is described in my signature. These crashes occurred cca 4 times but finally today I was quicker than CCleaner :-) and I saved minidumps files which are enclosed for your survey.
Having NIS2010 for about 3 weeks now and very impressed so far. I moved over from ESET Smart Secirity and I have to admit that in Symantec they did a big leap with NIS2010. My last experience with Norton was back in 2007 with NIS2007 and I was not so impressed so I opted ESET instead. However as I heard a lot of positives about NIS2010 I gave it a try and bought a 5 pack license. It paid off. NIS2010 is very fast, light, smarty GUI etc. NIS2010 puts ESET on a second rail at least.
I am a newbie here, so please be gentle to me :-)
