We have a Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Server that gets a blue screen now and then... We're thinking it's something to do with Printers Drivers or Antivirus and need a bit of help pin pointing the issue. It's running on vSphere 5.5...

I've attached a dump from DriverView, and from BlueScreenView

The bug-code IRQL_GT_ZERO_AT_SYSTEM_SERVICE usually indicates Device Driver. Do you have all your drivers up to date for your USB-plugged devices? Also plug out unnecessary devices.

Zip your last 3 minidump files (usually in the \Windows\Minidump folder) and upload the zip file. If the system is setup create full memory dumps and not minidumps, change it to minidumps, and then wait until your next BSOD so you have something to upload.

When did the blue screens start? Is there a pattern? For example, does it happen in the mornings or evenings or after large documents are printed?

What are you using for AV? Are you using printer isolation? What types of apps does your TS server host? Can you reproduce the Blue while logged onto the console?
