BSOD when downloading big files

Q: BSOD when downloading big files


I always get BSOD when i'm downloading a huge file like a game or movie (steam, origin, itunes, etc.) Cant figure out the reason why.

I have attached the diagnostic tool report.

Computer was built September 5th this year, fairly new. BSOD started happening 2 weeks into its life. And the pattern seems to be when I'm downloading, 30-45 mins into DL it'll give me the BSOD.

If anyone can please help me.

Preferred Solution: BSOD when downloading big files

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Essentially - every time I download a file (Steam, Internet, etc.) there's a chance after an arbitrary amount of time passes that the PC suffers from a BSOD.

This has occurred since I initially purchased the pre-made PC from, & I've just about had enough of it now.

My PC doesn't seem to be generating .dmp files either (though it did before), as I'm looking in %SystemRoot%\Minidump with nothing there.

Some PC details I've added to my profile, just re-iterating that I'm on Win 7 64-bit, 32gb RAM, i7, with a pair of GTX 970s system.

Any help would be appreciated - I assume a way to generate / locate .dmp files would be a good start..
Thanks in advance!

The antivirus you are currently using is known and contributing to your BSOD crashes, consider uninstalling it with the McAfee Removal Tool + ESET antivirus(with its removal tool because it contributes in crashes on some systems), replace with Microsoft Security Essentials at least to test and just FYI, keeping two antiviruses will be causing conflicts anyway.

You can however install ESET back if we know that it wasn't contributing in the BSODs, but I dare install Mcafee if it was my PC.

These software can contribute in BSOD's. For drivers, prefer visiting the manufacturers website for latest drivers. The windows 7 operating system does not require these registry cleaning software. They often tune-down rather than tune-up and can wreck the OS beyond repair. Microsoft have improved Windows 7 significantly and it is much better at organising and optimising itself than its predecessors. Check this, this and this thread for evidence.

If you feel the need to use a registry cleaning or optimisation software, most of us recommend the use of CCleaner but make sure you back up the registry before making letting ccleaner delete anything.

For a while now, I've been having a recurring BSOD giving the message "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". I believe it may be related to something to do with my network settings/drivers, as more recently, I noticed that it occured when I attempted to download game updates that were around 1.5GB in size. I have tried reinstalling networks drivers, but it does not appear to have worked. Any help would be appreciated
Thank you.

A:BSOD during downloading of large files, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

You are right, it is some network issue. But apparently no reason behind such a network crash is not visible in any dumps, which is a sound ground.

If you have any network bandwith monitoring/controlling program, uninstall it as a test. Uninstall peerblock too. Letus see if it causes any difference.

A:BSOD When Downloading Large Files From Browser

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is
caused by drivers that have corrupted the system pool. Run the driver
verifier against any new (or suspect) drivers, and if that doesn't turn up
the culprit, then use gflags to enable special pool.
Arg1: 00000004, memory referenced
Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
Arg3: 00000001, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
Arg4: 82b3b943, address which referenced memory
Bug Check 0xC5: DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL (Windows Debuggers)

The kernel attempted to access pageable memory (or perhaps completely invalid memory) when the IRQL was too high. The ultimate cause of this problem is almost certainly a driver that has corrupted the system pool.

If you get no help from that try enabling Driver Verifier,

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:

A:BSoD Stop Error when downloading files

I have built a custom computer with an nForce 590 SLI motherboard as well and it sounds like I have the same problem.

My computer specs are:

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ AM2
Video Cards: (2) EVGA GeForce 7950GT KO in SLI
Motherboard: EVGA nForce 590 SLI
Memory: OCZ Platinum DDR2 800MHz
OS: Windows XP Home Edition
Hard Drive: 250GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 RPM SATA II
Sound: Integrated Realtec AC97

I do not have an internet connection on the computer described above, but I do have 1Gb ethernet between several of my computers.

I only have a problem when transferring files between my nForce 590 computer and my other computers. When I am sitting at my nForce 590 computer and I try to copy a large file or several small files to it, it will display the BSoD and crash.

I have found that using the other network card on the motherboard will avoid the problem, but I would like to fix the problem.

I have tried using three different nForce 590 motherboards but they all had the same problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

Try right clicking on the download file and then click "save target as" then a window will popup with the file name already listed so you just select what location you want to save the file to.

That will let you open it AFTER it downloads.

You really don't need software for downloading run of the mill files or opening them, only propriterary ones. Windows opens all the other files.

I cannot download anything on my computer I assume it has to do with not having java which for some reason was lost when I went from files Downloading vista to So here is Downloading files what happens The thin bar on the top comes up asking if I trust this download and should let it happen Most the time I will click on it an press the download file option The window pops up with the option of run save or cancel Then whatever one that I choose the progress bar will run and complete the initial setup of the file and then close when it is done When I use the save to something like my desktop it never ends up there is is no where to be found on my computer The next window to actuallly download the file never comes up The real problem is that this happens with java as well as other programs so I do not know for sure if this problem is caused by only not having java Extra information running windows almost always use internet explorer on start up screen for computer when programs are loading it also says dell dock cannot load is not working Any help is appreciated nbsp

Do you have another computer you could use? If you think your problem has something to do with Java, you could download the installer on another computer and install it on this computer.

Hello, this is a question about my wife's computer.

She has a Compaq Presario (256mb ram, Sempron 3100+, 80gb hd)

She recently discovered that she cannot download any programs, it downloads complete but the files are not there even though she chooses it to save to 'My Documents'

Any ideas?

A:Files not downloading.

Hi gamecubefan77

It's likely that the "My Documents" that it is saving to isn't in her currently logged in user "Documents and Settings". If she makes a note of the name of the file downloaded, she can find it using the "search" function available from the Start Menu, or from Windows Explorer. It's likely under a different user account's "My Documents".

Best of luck

In Internet Explorer, go to Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab. Scroll down to and put a check mark in the box for "Notify when downloads complete." Click OK. That should restore the download options message window. (You may have to close all instances of IE and then reopen it to convince it to accept the change)

Check your temporary internet cache and see if it has been turned off (down to 0) or if it is very small. If so, make it larger. If its already over 100mb or something like that, try empyting that cache and maybe all the caches (cookies, browsing history, etc.) and see if that causes any chage to the better.

Ok, here is the deal. When I try to download an MP3 file, my save as option is gone. Instead it starts to download the file thru my browser....bottom left computer icon with a red arrow - almost as though I were downloading a Quicktime Movie. When it is finished, it always comes back with an error message saying the plug-in did not do something correctly. Regardless of that, I just want my save as feature to come back. I have looked thru my file types in folder options to check what is the default program for is winamp, which is my preference. Any ideas?

A:Downloading MP3 files

hi jaycjayz,Are you sure that the file link that you are trying to download when you right-click, is a direct link to the MP3. I know it sounds simple but it could be a link to another file or control.Also depends where you are downloading from, the best place I've found is Limewire ... it's great, you can get most general mp3 files - and interestingly for you, they have a file integrity check on you mp3 downloads - it'll tell you if the file you are trying to download is corrupt.Another place for MP3...Limewire...

Every day a csv file is downloaded to our desktop which is used by another program. How do I make firefox overwrite the file each time it is downloaded as opposed to adding the (1) after the name of the file?

A:How to get rid of (1) when downloading files...

Hi joshfrogs,

One way is to set Firefox to ask where to download a file to - Tools, Options, Main, check 'Always ask me where to save files' in the Downloads section, OK. If the file exists in that location then you have the option of overwriting it.

I guess the reason FF adds the number is because, for example, many program installers are called simply 'Setup.exe' and so everything but the last downloaded file of this name would be lost otherwise.

I recently bought a new laptop with Windows 8 installed. I had no trouble downloading an .exe program file previously, but now nothing happens when I try to run the program. I've run another fix mentioned on this forum, and after rebooting, I get the same results. Any suggestions?

A:.exe files not downloading

Hello Carlivia, and welcome to Eight Forums.

After you download the file, see if unblocking it first may help.

If not, then do you have a 3rd party AV or firewall program installed? If so, you might check to see if they are blocking them. Be sure that the .exe is safe before adding it to the safe list though.

Hope this helps,

Just a shot in the dark, but have you checked in your browser preferences to see where the downloads go, usually makes a "Downloads" folder. Even though your download box closes right away doesn't necessarily mean that it's not saving your downloads.

You usually download to the Downloads folder ? If so, go check the folder's Properties > Security tab, See if you have the right to 'write' to the folder.

Other than that, the other thing I would try is to uninstall Norton, and also run their own removal tool, from here:

I love downloading files, doesn't matter what, freeware, shareware, mp3s (legal naturally) - mostly just to see how things work, etc. On my old computer I downloaded a lot of card games and never had a problem. Just bought a Dell 8100 Pent. 4. Can't download very much anymore and not sure why. Zip, exe, or mp3 files are saved as compressed files or htm files. Instructions say to right click and save target as and then change the file type to the appropriate extension. The selection of file types is nonexistent - only shows html. How do I get the file extensions to show. I'm using Dellnet if that makes a difference. I can't play anymore. Help - I'm a learner so need simple help.
Thanks. By the way, does anyone have any sites about computers, the internet, etc. that are easy to understand.

When scanning and downloading a file that I receive by email I’m giving the option of;

“Would you like to open the file or save it to your computer”.

If I select to open the file the system downloads the file and launches the program to see the file (Adobe, Word, etc.) Then after the program opens I get the message:

“There was an error opening this document. This file can not be found”

I use to be able to open files that I downloaded from my email without saving to my computer. I have not knowingly changed anything in my system that would make it not work.
Could I have accidentally erased the temporary file location where the new file is stored? If so where would that be and how would I fix it?

I’m currently run XP Home Edition and my browser is Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.

A:Downloading Files Or Programs

By way of testing I would do the following.1 > test using another browser. If you are currently just using IE -- test with Firefox or Opera. Make sure you are downloading to a specific location -- such as the desktop. The file should appear even if not fully downloaded. Determine whether the problem is related to the size of the download.2 > test using another User Account. You can temporarily enable the "Guest" account in Control Panel > User Accounts for this.3 > test doing a "clean boot":Run msconfig and select the "Services" tab. Check "Hide Microsoft Services" and then disable the rest. Also uncheck "load startup group" on the general page.See this link for detailed information:;EN-US;310353 restart and test the issue at handIf no problems, run msconfig and recheck half the disabled items on the Services tab. Test again. If the problem recurs, UNcheck half the items you just checked to narrow down the culprit.If the problem didn't occur, check the other half, so all the Services are enabled -- proceed to do this on the startup tab as well.Get the idea? You want to isolate the problem to a specific startup if possible.Note: if you already have items unchecked under msconfig > startups and are in "selective" startup mode ??????? you should note what these are before beginning. They will need to be de-selected again.4 > Finally, you could try doing a system restore to a date prior to the problem -- this tends to resolve most issues that are not hardware or User Profile related. They can be undone if not helpful.

Hi there,All of a sudden I can't download any exe or zip files to my computer. Tried to install an update of a raw converter, when problem was there all of a sudden. Many websites don't open up or just with a blank page including the website! Tried several things to solve problem including restoring Windows 10 to an earlier point (last update is from Oct 4, major update from Oct 6, I restored back Oct 4, hoping to solve my problem), let run a clean and restore, with no success, did run troubleshooting, with no success. Never had this before, don't know what to do with this. Have Windows Firewall on , also run Trend Micro Maximum Security, which, in case it is a virus, didn't recognize it. I have Windows 10 on a laptop - no problems there. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I have a web page with links pointing to movies on
a Windows share: file:////SERVER/movies/movie.mkv
Clicking on such a link starts playing the movie in vlc.
Starting with IE10 it works only if the movie is smaller
than 4 GB. If the filesize exceeds 4 GB, IE10 tells me
"This page cannot be displayed". How can I fix this ?

I recently downloaded some jpeg files from a "hidden source" thru a software package called Amipic Sharemaster.
It seems as though I have been totally sucked in, because the files I received appeared as small coloured rectangles which I can't access.

I'm certainly not tech. minded; hence the tag Techdummy48. So what ever help you can give will need to be spelt out for a beginner.
The files may have some sort of encryption I'm not aware of and that's why they look like they do. They all have around 23 digits plus the words jpeg image next to the picture icon.

At this stage that's all the info I can give you.

Look forward to some suggestions.

Thanks, Techdummy48

A:Downloading files from Win98 PC to XP PC

Well I have not worked with 98 SE in along time, but I will try to help. First off does the 98 m/c have an Ethernet jack? Second, Windows XP has a wizard to transfer files from one computer to another, first go to START, then go to ALL PROGRAMS, then go to ACCESSORIES, then go to SYSTEM TOOLS, then go to FILES AND SETTINGS TRANSFER WIZARD. When you do that then it will ask you if this is your old computer or new computer, (DO THIS ON YOUR NEW ONE WITH XP) click on new one and it will configure your computer. Other then that I'm not sure what else you can do, except for getting Norton Ghost Program and do it that way also. Good luck

I just bought my new HP yesterday and today I used it in school in order to download the teachers power point and to view them. It all worked fine until after about 1 hour later when my computer randomly started converting the files into unreadable material for any program and refused them their .ppt file which they still were in as my friend had no problem downloading them to her computer. I dont know if it can have anything to do with the McAfee security program and that it started to block these files for some reason? I tried to view the settings but it all seemed right. I do not know how to do, it is impossible trying to opening the files with power point as they do not exist in that format once I click on them. Please help.

A:Converting files when downloading them

Hello @SofiaMaria, Thanks for joining HP Support Forums! I see that you are experiencing issues while trying to open powerpoint files on your new laptop. I will do my best to assist you with this issue. Let?s try to download a power point file first. Now I understand it will change to a different format as soon as you click it. Still I would like you to give a right-click on the file and then choose ?Open with?. You will get a list of programs, choose power point if you have an option. If you cannot see the power point program, then click on ?Choose Default Programs?. In the new pop-up window, select ?Other Programs? and select ?Microsoft PowerPoint? and select ok. I hope that should work. But if you still have issues, please reply with some images of the document format and the error so that I should be able to get a better handle on the issue. Cheers  Please click "Accepted Solution" on the post that solves your issue to help others find the solution.

Running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

I have an issue, if I download zipped music files from my ISP.
The download stops and looks like finished. But it's not finished.
There are errors about the same, when I want to open the zipped file.

On my windows xp computer there is no problems. The download get finished ok, and the total content is there.

What can be wrong ?. It seems to be on the W7U computer the culprit resides.

This is what I get when downloading zipped files:

[Window Title]
Compressed (zipped) Folders Error
Windows cannot open the folder.
The Compressed (zipped) Folder 'C:\Users\PSDR\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\30PGD5XM\' is invalid.

A:Issue when downloading ZIP files.

instead of choosing to open the file, choose to save it (select location if required) then try and open it. If compression methods unknown to widows have been used you may require a 3rd party compression app e.g. 7-Zip

I am having problems when downloading then playing mpg files or playing cds/dvds to get them to play on anything other than VLC player. My main PC and old laptop are fine but never had this problem. I keep getting error messages including might be a codec problem but don't understand this and if it is what do I need to do?
Hope you can help.

Hello Steve

If you have this problem with Windows Media Player you probably need to install codec package.
I recommend you to install K-lite codec package or even K-lite mega codec package.

It is simply to find it. Use Google and you will find it after few clicks only.

you could try reseting the security settings in IE back to the default level. you'll find it in tools>options.
if you have a 3rd party firewall running, you could try shuting it down to see if it is stopping you downloading images/files.

For Christmas, my son got an mp3 player for his Juice Box (made by Mattel). We are both completely inexperienced with mp3s, and I have spent literally hours trying to find a website where we can (legally, of course) download songs for his player. The main problem we are encountering is that most of the sites require Windows 2000 or XP. We only have Windows 98. Does anyone know of (or can help me find) a music download site that is compatible with Windows 98? Is there any other way we can get songs for his player besides putting our own CDs onto our computer? He doesn't want THOSE songs...

I know, we need to join the 21st Century, but a new computer and an iPod just aren't in the budget...

They should only be exe files if they are programs.Malware activity is possible, run these three small freebies in the order given:AdwCleaner: "Download Now" button on right).Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.Junkware Removal Tool (JRT) Download button).Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.MalwareBytes: the "download" button rather than the "buy" button).Install and Run the program but before running the Scan go to "Settings > Detection and Protection" and put a checkmark in "Scan for rootkits". Quarantine anything it finds. Please copy/paste the logs on here - further steps might be required.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

A:Downloading mostly corrupted files

Sometimes this happens when you are losing packets or information. Your DSL Line may be far from the DSL station causing your PC to sometimes drop the connection. Try this:

Start>Run>type "cmd" w/o quotes. Then type in the window


where is the name of the website where you have corrupt files comping from. See if you get any "lost" packets.

If the files are all from the same website they could have also gotten errors when they were uploaded to the website server such as it did not fully upload.

A:problem downloading files

Hello and welcome to TSF:

Do you have a firewall? This actually sounds like what happens when you have two firewalls running; say a hardware (Router with NAT) and a software one.
The final "closing" bit is blocked. Thus the download shows as complete, but the file is never saved from temp storage to the designated location and if you attempt to run it it will not open.

Are you using any download accellerators or a download manager?
Do these files you are downloading have an MD5 checksum posted so that you can verify the integrity of the files?

I am presuming you are using internet explorer and you mean legitimate downloads of programs from sites like or

Can you tell us any more information which may be useful. Has this always been a problem? Do you have dialup , DSL, or cable internet?
Do you have all your windows updates.
Are these downloads associated with a specific site?
