Netio.sys Blue Screen Stop Error
» I've been getting several BSOD these days and now they're happening every time I log into windows; it works fine in safe mode, the error is directed to netio.sys file. I'm running Windows Vista Business x86 SP2. Please help me with it!
NETIO.sys is a Windows networking driver. Since it's a Windows driver it's likely protected by the System File Checker and, consequently, it's not likely to be the actual cause. It probably resulted from networking related 3rd party programs.
We start with the drivers for wired and wireless adapters, then check anti-malware protection drivers, and other internet aware applications for other drivers involved in the communication with the internet.
A faster way to attempt to identify the faulting driver is by the use of DLL Suite. You may use DLL Suite to fix the missing or corrupt hal.dll by downloading the hal.dll file for free. It contains the latest versions of all kinds of dll files including the sys files. DLL Suite helps fix DLL errors with .dll file extension to resolve missing hal.dll error, hal.dll startup error, hal.dll runtime error, and other PC errors caused by file hal.dll. It can detect the drivers to see whether it is out of date or corrupted, and then fix it accordingly, updating it when necessary. BTW, it can also solve the issue caused by Worm:Win32/Autorun.ADZ.
Download DLL Suite 2012, install and run it. > Click Download DLL - Free menu > click Start Scan & Download DLL - Free button, choose your needed DLL > click More Information > click Download button from the open web page.
And then follow the steps below to re-register the downloaded dll file: Click Start, Run > type CMD, press OK > type regsvr32 hal.dll, press Enter > restart your computer.

Bug check 0x7F typically occurs after you install a faulty or mismatched hardware (especially memory) or if installed hardware fails. A double fault can occur when the kernel stack overflows. This overflow occurs if multiple drivers are attached to the same stack.
netio.sys is related to the network drivers. Hence I suggest to update all the drivers (chipset, video card, display and network adapter drivers) to the latest drivers by visiting the manufacturer's website.
- CHARLOTTE DRESCHER replied on January 2, 2013: » I already updated my drivers through windows update before and it didnt solve the problem. I tried doing a clean boot and it worked, so I slowly added programs back into the start up list. It didnt crash at all even with them all back in. Then later on today it crashed again on boot up.
- ROY KEADLE replied on January 2, 2013: » Think that drivers and Comodo could easily be part of the problem as it is known to cause strange issues.
This could be a hardware issue such as poorly seated cards or memory, though there are other causes. Weak power supply could also lead to this.
If a PC remove ALL power. Open case, remove and reseat ALL cards, memory chips, and ALL cables on both ends if they can be reached and on the device ends if not. If a Laptop you might have to take to a shop (not BestBuy or other BigBox Stores) or your System maker's Support.
- CHARLOTTE DRESCHER replied on January 3, 2013: » Well I removed Hamachi and Avast and replaced it with MSE as well as ran a system cleanup utility. That seemed to fix the problem, as I haven't had any blue screens in the last few days but this morning I had another blue screen. I'm going to try what you suggested Debra and see if that works.
