    From what I can tell, and I don't have that much experience, the utility named is usbfilter.sys which seems to be tied to an AMD sound device sensing for the USB ports. It is a fairly recent (2009) driver, but you might see if there is an update and it would seem to be related to the chipset drivers. The recommend download to replace would seem to suggest 2009 might be the latest, but you will want to check for your system.

    You also have a driver from 2005 named MarvinBus64.sys that seems to be related to a Pinnacle Video capture. This does not necessarily mean it is bad, but you might check for a newer version, or if you are not still using it, try to remove.

    Besides Saltgrass excellent post these drivers should be updated as they are from before win 7 was released let alone SP-1.
    Code:
    ALSysIO64.sys    4/19/2009 3:41:04 PM        fffff880`090de000    fffff100`090e6000    0xfffff88000008000    0x49eb7e50                        
    lv302a64.sys    4/30/2009 6:41:07 PM        fffff880`02724000    0072f8f3`02726400    0x0073007300002400    0x49fa2903                        
    lvrs64.sys    4/30/2009 6:43:25 PM        fffff880`02742000    644d65f3`02790580    0x644d6d730004e580    0x49fa298d                        
    LV302V64.SYS    4/30/2009 6:43:26 PM        fffff880`02485000    fffff87f`02724000    0xffffffff0029f000    0x49fa298e                        
    LVPr2M64.sys    10/7/2009 4:26:50 AM        fffff880`090d4000    fffff880`090de000    0x0000a000    0x4acc50ca

    Today no Bluescreen So far! :)
    Regarding the usbfilter.sys i can't update it even if i install the latest available drivers for my mobo. And the MarvinBus64.sys works fine when i start Pinnacle... so i'll wait a couple of days before i do anything more.

    zigzag: This system is updated both hardware and Win7 from Vista. :) So that must be why there's old drivers lying around... :) Maybe it's a good idea to reinstall everything from scratch.
    If the bluescreens appears again i will do that to get rid of the old stuff. Thanks for the reply!!!

    General consensus across Forums tends to be that an "upgrade install" is basically a time bomb waiting to hit you with problems (as you have seemed to have found out!!). So, if you're up to it, or the next time you feel a need to install, then a completely fresh install is the way to go.

    Even if you only have the upgrade disc you can still do a clean install. A nice read of Paul Thurrot's blog will show you the way!
