BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL caused by ntoskrnl.exe

This is a discussion on BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL caused by ntoskrnl.exe within the BSOD, App Crashes And Hangs forums, part of the Tech Support Forum category. Another one of these. I have checked through the forums and can't find a solution. Usually I'm fine with BSOD

Another one of these. I have checked through the forums and can't find a solution. Usually I'm fine with BSOD and can solve but this has stumped me a bit.

Could someone a little more experienced take a look and see what could possibly be the problem?

I've attached Perfmon report and Minidumps.

Many Thanks

Welcome to TSF,

ssp.exe is more than likely the faulting application i believe its apart of SpyStopper Pro?
Either make sure its up-to-date or remove it for testing purposes.
But i also noticed that the module thats required for the SpyStopper to function was unloaded at the time of the crash.

Hi Aus_Karlos,

When Googling the ssp.exe, it seems it could be Sophos with the problem. Thank you for checking that out for me.

I wonder if you can help again. We have had more of these errors since uninstalling the application that was causing the problem. I have also coincidentally upgraded to PC to Windows 10.

When i put the dump through the Debug Tool, its still showing the SSP.exe application.

Do you have any idea what other problem this could be with?

My System

I'd suggest running Driver Verifier here.
This can cause your system to BSOD instantly which is what we want, it basically stresses all your drivers to find the faulting one. If it is a Software/driver problem. When it does upload the new dmp files to the forum.

Without been able to debug the file myself its quite hard to know what the cause is as there are many steps to debug a dmp file.
