BlueScreen Error 0x0000003b System_Service_Exception

Hi,
Running Server 2008 Standard edition (sp2) as a VM in ESXI 4.0
Every reboot is getting the bluescreen error 0x0000003b System_Service_Exception
Then it automatically restarts and am able to logon
I loaded Bluescreenview and it references a different driver with every reboot as a cause.
Another thing to note is that once in a while the print spooler will not start When trying to start it: (Error 0x8001000e: The server (callee) cannot unmarshall the paramerter data -- low memory, etc) and the server needs to be rebooted and the print spooler works fine.
But this blue screen happens on every reboot and I noticed the same error was occurring with Bluescreenviewer for every reboot since last April. And it references a different driver causing the issue everytime  (ws2fsl.sys, usbport.sys, rspndr.sys, mouhid.sys, vmx_svga.sys, vmci.sys, hidparse.sys, etc)
I did notice a file referenced as srvnet.sys in the blue screen message every reboot
Any suggestions?

Re-install the VMware Tools (integration services) with the most recent version and reboot the VM.

Any disk subsystem errors on the host or dedicated storage that should be of concern? Any sudden power outages?

I do see a Voltage Alert in Health Status on the VMhost for  System Board 1BB +1.2vtt-Lower Critical  Reading 1.08 Volts
Everything else in Health Status is normal
Ran CHCKDsk and it found problems but this issue persists
Running SFC now

What does that particular voltage drive on the mainboard? In my experience voltage irregularities can cause all sorts of problems especially if connected with a disk subsystem component.

Did you run chkdsk /f?

Is there a virtual disk inspection utility in VMware that can be used on the virtual disk of that VM to test its integrity?

How good are the backups?

I ran chkdsk with /f and /r (fixed some problems)
I ran sfc (no problems)
I reinstalled VMware Tools
I don't know about the virtual disk inspection utility in VMware 4.0?
Still the same BSOD on reboot and then reboots normally.
Also, with every reboot after the BSOD-- it takes a long time for the kernel screen to run The windows loading window with the scrolling bar
Thanks

Right click on srvnet.sys and bring up its properties.

Who does the file belong to?

Is there A/V running on the VM?

There is a pro edition of AVG that we use from Kaseya-- always have probs with that.
Srvnet.sys has TrustedInstaller as the owner and full control permissions
Admins are Read

For the file go to the Details tab of Properties and Digital Signatures tab.

Please snip both and paste here.

Option: Remove AVG from the server VM and reboot.

Do you have another server identical to this one?

You could copy the srvnet.sys file over from the known good server OS to this one. Make sure the version is the same.

Safe Mode with Command Prompt would probably be the best method.

Suspend AVG?
