I have an Acer Desktop running Win7 which until yesterday has been working fine. Howver, whlist on the Net, I had a BSOD with an error mesage saying:
BC code 50
Page fail in nonpaged area**
Computer was rebooted and the same problem occurred when I next tried the internet connection. (Internet connection is good and stable as I can use the Laptop)I appear to be able to be on the net for a couple of minutes before this happens.
Have scanned with AVG, run Spybot, thinking it might be a virus but nothing sinister found. Even run defrag, but that OK also. Don't really understand the dialog box and messages so any help appreciated
Nine times out of ten page fault errors are caused by drivers crashing sometimes an update or even a roll back of the driver the event viewer or something like Who Crashed may guide you to the guilty party
After much 'faffing' around yesterday, eventually managed to get back to the internet and some reliability. Had installed 'NAT GEOG Calendars' to do a project for my neighbour. No updates involved though. Did run cCleaner with Registry, and normal scan, but nothing untoward found. Did a system restore and it's been stable ever since. No BSOD. However, I'm now told AVG Free, is off, and I can't switch it back on. Windows Defender is now running so I need to sort out that side of things today. Thanks for the help and suggestions,
Northumbria61: Tried your suggestion but whilst the computer chuntered away (no other programs running etc.) nothing seems to have happened, and still left with the inability to switch AVG back on, or for that matter, uninstall and re-install. Will also try a REVO download and see if that helps.
