BSOD from McAfee related to AnyDVD

    A few months ago I had to rebuild my OS after a head crash and since then I'd have random BSODs typically with the error IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I analyzed the dump files and they most often stated that the BSOD was "Probably caused by: mfehidk" which is a file used by McAfee VirusScan. I sent my dumps (the files) to McAfee and they told me to remove AnyDVD. Seeing that I have used the two in conjunction for over a year, I didn't see what difference it would make. So to prove to the guy that AnyDVD has no relation, I removed it and waited for the next dump. Well, two days passed without a dump. I reinstalled AnyDVD and by the next morning, BSOD. Removed AnyDVD again and, aside from the missing AnyDVD, all was well. Reinstalled and a few hours later got a BSOD.

    Up until my crash, my drive had remained un-rebuilt since just after XP came out. Either something in my previous mess of files had kept this problem from happening or, one of the recent AnyDVD or McAfee updates started something. To eliminate a lot of other things, I've held off installing much else until this problem is resolved.

    Yes, I've checked the CPU temp and have run WinDiag and Memtest86 without any issues.

    OS - XP/SP2
    CPU - P4/3.06Ghz
    RAM - 1.5Gb

    Anyone run into the problem?

    It's up to you

    That BSOD indicates a conflict between two drivers on the machine and the crash just happens to occur when AnyDVD is running. ;)

    See this please:

    If you have Roxio products installed, or InCD running at the same time or any other Packet Writer, Drag&Drop stuff, etc., these compete for the same resources in Windows and it is a matter of circumstances as to how this ends. Mostly it's AnyDVD not working.

    You might also want to open Device Manager and cruise the list looking for yello triangles - fix those with updating the driver.

    Without a closer look at your machine that is the first analysis of your problem. Fix the conflict and this will go away.

    On the Mcafee front, this COULD be a version problem with your AV product which has nothing to do with AnyDVD:

    After analyzing multiple crash logs, McAfee has determined the cause of the issue is with Daemon Tools. Escalations for this issue will no longer be accepted by McAfee Technical Support.

    Customers are advised to contact Daemon Tools at for further assistance.

    So that is another direction for you to look. AnyDVD may just be triggering an old issue on McAfee.

    Yeah, I HAVE been believing the cause is a McAfee update despite what they claim. I'm hoping that by posting about it here, I'll find someone else experiencing the same issue. I don't have Daemon Tools installed so I know it's not that but perhaps related. I've checked the device manager and all is ok from that aspect, Roxio is not installed and I never liked the Drag & Drop to CD crap so when I installed Nero, I left out InCD plus. The BSODs were also appearing before I installed Nero.

    Below are all of the drivers collected by latest dump.

    Lose McAfee and try a different AV program. AVG Free is an excellent alternative.

    I'm considering that. McAfee is also a resource hog.

    You still appear to have virtual drive software on your system.

    Do this please (use any original dvd) if you can without crashing:

    a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original movie dvd in your burner. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    d) Select "Create Logfile"
    e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    g) Go to your My Documents folder
    h) You will see a zip file called "" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG] (in other words, look for the paperclip after clicking "quote" or when creating a new thread)
    j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    k) A small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    m) click "upload"
    n) Close the window. When you submit reply, or submit a new thread, the .zip file will be attached automatically for us to take a look at

    EME, if you could send me the .dmp file. Let's see, what I can do.

    The more dumps the better.

    Hmmm...I think I remember doing something with a virtual Cd app because I needed to mount an ISO but now I don't remember if that was at home or work. I'll check it out when I get home and post the log.

    I should be able to get the log without a crash as they happen at unexpected times, when AnyDVD is running, whether or not I've actively utilizing AnyDVD.

    That would be great! Attached are some of them.

    I've got a couple complete dumps but they're over a gig.

    You seem to be familiar with the windows kernel debugger.

    Could you load the corresponding long dump of Mini042308-01.dmp and call lmvu & lmvk and post the output here? If you don't have that file, use any other long dump file (which also saves user space).

    Thanks. I see the cause but don't see the originator.
  11. EME

    EME Member

    Somewhat familier. Google has been helping me out.

    That crash happened when I was zipping up a full dump and checking my yahoo email at the same time. I then removed AnyDVD and tried the same situation again without a crash. I went to bed while my dumps were buring to a DVD so I didn't retry the scenario with AnyDVD installed once again. I'll possibly try tonight.

    The results were to long so it's now attached.

    First of all thank you very much!

    Could you do it again with the command lmvu ? You incorrectly executed lmvl :)

    Here is the correct 411.

    Here is the AnyDVD log.

    I have uninstalled VCDrom.sys; hopefully that was the cause.

    Well, unfortunately, I'm not seeing anything terribly exciting. Anyway, maybe Fernando will find something.

    Everything ran perfectly from the time of my last post to late last night when I got the IRQL BSOD. I think that's at least the longest run I've had so far. I started up the erase/burn of a DVD-RW, for my dumps, before I went to bed but the process was unable to finish due to some random reboot. I didn't have time to reburn this morning so the dumps will have to wait until I get home.

    Fernando, attached is the latest info.

    Hopefully it'll provide some insight?

    Why does kmixer show up so many times? Is that normal?

    I may have narrowed it down to memory after all despite the multitude of tests I've run. It got to a point where I couldn't even complete a burn of my dumps to a dvd without a BSOD. I took out my 1GB stick and suddenly everything was working again. I'm now down to only 512Mb, which sucks, but plan on getting some more once I complete testing the weekend with McAfee reinstalled.

    Yeah, actually a bad stick of ram is a very common cause of BSODs. Sorry that your ram is bad, but I'm happy you found the problem.
