Question DPC watchdog violation BSOD while installing game

Apr 14, 2022
I have a new pc so I didn't use my HDD much until I was installing a game on the HDD and I saw a blue screen with this code in the middle of the game installation. I tried again and the same thing happened.

In the event viewer, there are a lot of warning logs volmgr with id 2:

Failed to read KSR data - disk 0 sector X operation 0 status c0000225.
These warnings are also seen when pc boots.

The last event before the crash is a volmgr error with id 162:
Dump file generation succeded.
Here are the dump files:

I also should mention that the game was installed successfully on my SSD.
both BSODs are from gwdrv.sys driver dated 2015 (from glasswire), consider replacing it with updated version or remove it if no updates available, driver is not part of windows core drivers

start by removing:

use this tool to delete this driver:

find out why you have this driver installed:
\SystemRoot\system32\drivers\networx.sys Mon Mar 1 05:48:09 2021
(network hook driver?)

3 of your core windows files have had their checksums removed.
start cmd.exe as an admin and run
dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
in the hopes it repairs the files.

looks like a hypervisor crashed.
(remove gwdrv.sys and it will most likely not crash)

are you intentionally running linux subsystem?
good place for malware to hide.
