    it maybe incompatible drivers, you get a lot of results if you paste that into g00gle... try this link on Microsoft Support Page

    Far too many things that can cause that. Assuming you havn't changed any drivers or hardware lately it is worth getting a copy of memtst32 and checking your memory is still good. (A quick test is to pull one of the sticks out)

    Just out of curiosity, I Googled NVT.sys and got this clue for you...

    Try uninstalling or updating the nvidia firewall. Are you behind a router? If yes, you can do without the nvidia firewall. I removed this from a mates computer when he was complaining about bad CS:S pings and we saw a noticable improvment.

    :D :cool:

    I had this problem a few times. Happened whenever I was using limewire or bit torrent, and was sourcing the netgear wireless driver dll. Stopped using the automatic configuration software crap and all working fine now.

    i had this problem with a pc i built for a relative.

    this problem drove me to despair. Ive never had a problem with any pc that i built and the 2 that i built after the problem one were fine !

    did all the tests on memory,drivers,mobo,psu,video card etc. But the thing still displayed that message and randomly BSOD.

    Did 4 rebuilds and reinstalls to clean formatted HD - still had problems.

    eventually i found a webpage suggesting that it could be a problem to do with windows update installing the wrong drivers.Looking at the error log and then checking what the error realted file did further confirmed this.Seems that some file that was being added during automatic updates was the cause.

    so for rebuild number 5 i decided not to run automatic updates .

    This fixed it .So i guess in this case it was a driver issue and something to do with windows update.

    hope this helps
