XP BSOD bugcheck with no minidump
Posted on 2008-10-25
I started having BSODs a couple of months ago. It was always a bugcheck c2. According to the MS knowledge base the cause of this could be "hardware or software" (big whoop). The minidump would always implicate a driver from Webroot Spysweeper. I first started the tech support process with them, and after a long round of back and forth, eventually uninstalled Spysweeper.
The BSODs continued, although now referring to a different program each time. I had already done a through memtest86, and no new hardware had been installed recently. Since I had been needed to reinstall Windows for quite some time anyways, I decided to do it to see if that would cure the problem.
AFTER REINSTALLING WINDOWS
After the clean install, BSODs have continued, usually while the machine is running overnight. However, there is no minidump, and nothing in the Event Log. The proper settings to create the minidump are set, and there is a pagefile > 200MB on the C partition, with the main 5GB pagefile on the F partition.
Any ideas on how to get the minidump?
