    DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION when opening a particular website and randomly


    This problem started to happen around 3 months ago.

    My current PC was assembled by myself in february 2017. Probably the only stuff missing in the logs about the build is the PSU model, which is a Seasonic S12II 520W (bought brand new), and cooler, a Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme.

    Strangely, I usually have this DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION BSOD when opening AliE****s (I hope you figure out) website using Firefox, but sometimes happens at random at lower chances when using the computer ordinarily, including gaming.

    I have around 3 BSODs of this kind per week, but if I access the quoted website, it's 50/50 chance to immediately BSOD, which is funny.

    What I already tested:

    1 - Full 3 passes in the new Passmark Memtest86, no reboots or errors reported.
    2 - 1 hour of Furmark, no graphical glitches, BSODs or reboots.
    3 - 3 hours of Intel Burn Test (IBT) at maximum stress level, also no problems like previous tests.

    Observations:

    1 - During this time, I even switched my SATA SSD to a M.2 NVMe model.
    2 - The build is very well cooled, no overheating even after hours of stressing CPU or GPU.
    3 - I believe all drivers are updated, including UEFI BIOS and Intel Watchdog Timer Driver (WDT).
    4 - No problems in the house electric installations, the PC is also plugged in a APC surge protector.
    5 - Happens no matter how many times I reinstall Windows 10, I even tested the system only without any software installed after a fresh OS install + updated drivers and web browser only.
    6 - I also included two more previous dumps that I collected before the newer ones got overwritten.

    Hello Gacrux,

    All the crash dumps seem to point to an ESET driver causing the problems.
    epfwwfp.sys Fri Nov 3 06:53:40 2017

    Try removing the ESET security and see if it makes a difference. Windows Defender will provide sufficient protection while you are troubleshooting.

    I suspected it was something with ESET Firewall too when I analyzed the memory dumps by myself, but since I'm unexperienced in this matter, I was hopping that someone here could find something more that would pinpoint the culprit for my BSODs.

    I remember searching into this matter and found this post in ESET forums, but since other users are reporting different BSODs in ESET solutions v10 too, even they saying epfwwfp.sys is not used anymore by v10, maybe it's ESET fault. I'm using ESET Internet Security v11.

    The problem is, I really need the firewall, maybe I'll switch to other solution such as Kaspersky and try to migrate the rules.

    Why will the built in Windows firewall not be sufficient for you?

    My PC is also experiencing regular crashes with epfwwfp.sys as the culprit. I am not sure which version I initially installed on it, but since I only bought it late last year, it seems unlikely that it started with V9 - I suspect I installed v10 and upgraded to V11.

    So, if this file is not actually part of V10 / V11, how come it even exists on my PC?
