OS: XP SP3
How long has it been happening? Just today.
AV software: paid version of AVG
Okay, my Windows XP (SP3) will boot fine, all the way to my desktop. Then I get a "found hardware to install" for a Soft V92 Data Fax Modem. If I try to install it, the system can't find the driver (mind you, I have NO idea what this fax is. The only thing I can think of is that it has something to do with the cable modem and router that was installed roughly 6 weeks ago,). If I x out the notice, the system will shut down with the following BSoD.
STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xACC80253, OxAd1F671C, 0x00000000) (The third and fourth numbers will change with each boot up.)
HSFBS2S2.sys - Address ACC90253 base at ACC7B000, DateStamp 40d22194 (The file name doesn't change, but the address base and the "at" do.)
I'm at a total loss here. I don't know where to find this driver (if it's even a legit piece of hardware). I don't know how to remove the hardware, as I don't know what it is. And once that installation prompt comes up, the BSoD is inevitable. It seems to be what's triggering this BSoD.
Let me know if there's anything else you need. Thanks for any help you can give.
