I am regularly getting blue screens. The stop message is usualy 0X0000008E (0X0000005,0XF followed by different letters and numbers and then ending 0X00000000
The address is KMWDFilter.sys

I am on windows XP with 1gb of memory and 57.6gb free space on my hard drive.

I would be very grateful if someone can help as this is so frustrating

Thank you

a quick search on google pointed to a wirless/corded mouse driver that was the problem..an update of your mouse driver or i also read that the removal of
KMWDFilter.sys solved the problem with no ill affects but do so at own risk..kind regards aknic

Hi, go to My Computer then C:\WINDOWS\system32 then scroll down to see if KMWDFilter.sys is shown, if so highlight it and delete it. Then do a re-start.

Thanks. There were no newer updates for my mouse and the only KMWDFilter I could find was in C:\WINDOWS\system32\Drivers and this is KMWDFilter. Do I delete this please

Do I delete this please ........ Yes, delete.

Then re-start your computer.

Sorry this did not work.My mouse would not work at all after I deleted the file so I restored it from the recycle bin without success.I then uninstalled and reinstalled the mouse driver and the mouse still would not work so I did a system restore and all os ok again except for the blue screens. I am going to try a new mouse. Many thanks for trying to help me.

Hopefully a new mouse will cure it for you. I personally use a Logitech V400 dual laser cordless mouse. It is meant for Laptops, but I use it on my desktop PC. Not cheap, about £29, but worth it in my opinion. click here
