Receiving Ataport.sys Blue Screen
» Receiving ataport.sys bsod with windows 7. someone help?
Ataport.sys is simply a process used by your PC to open and execute the files that are required to run software and applications. If you are trying to launch a program but it cannot response, that means the associated ataport.sys process are missing or corrupted from the Applications folder. Occasionally, Windows becomes unresponsive because more and more process like ataport.sys file are corrupt or are an incorrect version that is not supported by the program or feature trying to access it.
An ataport.sys file should only be located in the Windows\system32 folder of your pc as this is the default path where this file is designed to execute from. Unfortunately, some of the undetected spyware(TrojanDropper:Win32/Bifrose.F) may be responsible for the ataport.sys errors occurring on your computer, placing a file with the similar name. Moreover, an uninstall of a program that has been performed incorrectly or incompletely may also lead to the ataport.sys errors.
In case of an ataport.sys file error, you may encounter a blue screen of death. Therefore, you need to remove this kind of virus at first. Then need to fix the blue screen of death by repairing the corrupted ataport.sys file. I would like to recommend DLL Suite, which is a professional tool for a blue screen fix with ataport.sys.
Download DLL Suite, install and run > Click Dashboard menu and > Click Scan DLL Errors button > Click Fix DLL Errors button after the scan. In DLL Suite's Dashboard menu there is a built-in feature of Fix BSOD, which aims to remove all .sys file related problems.

Also, you appear to have an older version of McAfee installed so I would also suggest to update McAfee to the latest version.

- NANCY BROWN replied on February 17, 2013: » There is a lot of confusion about this blue-screen virus and how to get rid of it. This virus resides in the root of the system, which is what makes it difficult because ordinary anti-virus programs either don't offer the ability to scan the root or you have to know to tell it to do so. As long as you have use of your computer, at least in Safe Mode, go to Kaspersky.com and download their RootKiller. Run a scan and If it works for you, pass it on. No need to analyze minidumps, etc.
