I've recently built an SBS 2008 server that continually blue screens 2 - 3 times a day.  I'm new to reading dump files, but Windbg points to the wininit.exe.  I'm hoping that you can help me figure out what is going on.  I will gladly start over with a reinstall if necessary, but want to make sure it will fix it!

GA-EP45-UD3P Motherboard
Intel 2.85 Ghz Dual Quad processor
8 GB Ram
SIIG, Sata 4 - Channel RAID controller
3 - 500 Gb Hard drives - Configured in RAID 5

I have attached 2 minidumps, but changed their extension to .txt.  Any suggestions and/or help would be appreciated!!

Trend is known to hose servers, even fresh installs. Their latest edition is hit/miss.

Make sure to fully uninstall Trend, reboot, and reinstall the new version you downloaded.

It still may act up on you.

I'm so sorry it has taken so long to update this issue, but I've been putting out other fires!  I have uninstalled the Trend Micro and am still getting the same BSOD.

The server continues to BS 2 to 4 times a day.  Any other suggestions?!  I'm getting alot of heat to focus on this and resolve it!

Thanks!

Analysis attached.

Please upload a couple of recent ones.

We need to see if there is a pattern.

Since you uninstalled Trend, did you run the Fix My Network Wizard to reseat the TCP/IP stack? Make sure IPv6 is NOT disabled.

MPECSInc.  - IPV6 is active.  I did not run the "fix my network" wizard.  I'm not aware of it...I just found and ran it.  No issues.  

I downloaded and ran the Trend Micro uninstall Computer Techie suggested.

the memory dump file is coming back with a driver issues the problem is it does not tell what driver it is.
i am recommending you increase the memory dump file to kernal memory dump from small memory dump.
we need more information.

have you update any driver that you can remember about in the last few weeks?

I have not updated any drivers, but I've been wondering about the RAID card...suspicious that it was the culprit.  The system was set at Kernel memory dump, so I will attach a couple tomorrow and see if there is more information.

Thanks so much for the help!
