Hello,

I have WinDbg on my system and I'm able read minidump files however I'm not sure how to correct this one, All I know from the read from the minidump file is that the cause is csrss and I cannot interpret the rest. I am attaching the dump file and hopefully someone can guide me to resolving this issue

Thanks in advance.

Do you Have Anti-Virus installed ? Can you try disabling it and reboot?

Your dump indicates I/O error, has there been any power surge? May be a complete Memory dump could help

Yes, Symantec Endpoint Protection is on the laptop. However, the user says the laptop sometimes reboots when idle and I was able to retrieve the dump file and load it up in WinDbg on my laptop. I will check if there was a powersurge but he says that this been happening every 4 days or so. There where about 20 Dump files in the mini dump folder and I just retrieved the latest one which was from yesterday.

Turn off the automatic reset, and turn on the full dump. It would help us to help you :)

Could be a virus
Run TdssKiller and Hitmanpro.

Sorry guys I was away for a couple of days. I'm on the laptop now and I removed symantec endpoint protection and installed kaspersky from one of my servers. I turned off auto reset and enabled full dump log, just in case the laptop BSOD again we can capture more data detail about the issue. I haven't tried the virus url's above from "optoma" but will give it a shot if all else fails with my recent changes.  I will keep you guys posted thanks for the help.

I haven't had the issue any more every since I removed the symantec endpoint protection....So I assume it was something wrong with the SEP. I will reward bvvjagan: the points being that he suggested disabling the AV....Thanks for the support

Disabling and uninstalling AV seemed to work
