T500 Crashes with tcpip.sys


Vista Ultimate SP2


OK, my fan has been fixed now and the temperature-related crashes have disappeared. Thanks:-)


Only now my system crashes with a message mentioning tcpip.sys.


The only way to get around it was to go into safe mode with networking or to uninstall my avast antivirus.


I searched around and there seems to be a very tricky hotfix from Microsoft on that.


Anyone with experience on it?

Re: T500 Crashes with tcpip.sys

I had two antivirus programs on, one which dealt with the accesses by programs from the laptop to the outer world.

This had worked for two years, but after some updates, it didn't any more.


I removed this one, and it's solved now, even though it might be less protected.


Whocrashed was very helpful in identifying this.
