Hello,

For the past year I've had BSOD almost eveytime I watch video streaming online: youtube, etc.

I tried to remove my video card driver and reinstall it but no luck.

The error I get everytime is watchdog.sys

Computer spec:
Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU
E8400 @ 3.00GHz
3.00 GHz
2Go RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT
XP SP3


p.s. I don't know if it's normal but I have tons (200 of them) of blue files in my windows directory called: "$NtUninstallIKB2564958$


Edit:
My browser is Chrome but I have the same problem on every browser.
My antivirus is Avast

Sometimes I can see that Adobe Flash Player is not responding just before getting a BSOD

The exact error code I get eveytime is:
STOP:0x0000008E (0XE0000001, 0XB8470925, 0XB24141B0, 0X00000000)
watchdog.sys - Adress B8470925 base at B8470000, Datestamp 480254ab

In any and every browser start a video streaming video, right click on it and a menu should appear about flash player settings, disable hardware acceleration. I do not know if it will help you but that is the trick that solved my exact same problem.


Hope it helps,

These are all of your windows update uninstall option if you ever need to remove any of them.

Thank you very much!

I disabled hardware acceleration and I don't get BSOD anymore!

I'll keep you updated if I get BSOD again.
