I have a Windows 7 PC that can boot, work normally and hibernate/restart all well, except whenever I open a file explorer and CLICK on "My Documents" , "Pictures", "Music" or "Videos" I get a BSOD:
STOP ntoskrnl 0x000001e
Also if I navigate from C: to My Documents, upon entering My Documents, the same BSOD occurs.
Using BlueScreenView I found that
ntoskrnl.exe is always in the stack's top 2, sometimes alone sometimes the first one will be something else: I've had dozens of this crash and it's pretty variable what the other driver is alongside ntoskrnl.
The very first crash was with the string "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" and since then they are all "KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED".
I can go into My Documents from a
cmd window, and list files there. I ran
sfc /scannow and it found no corruption. I have removed recently installed applications, and still this persists. chkdsk finds no corruption , and the bsod does not happen in safe mode.
This system is pretty generic, it had been hibernating on and off succesfully for months as I remember, I can't think of anything really big that changed recently (Firefox 13, Skype 5.9, Avast which I've now got rid of).
Any ideas would be much appreciated: My Documents is actually a place I like to visit often!
