Random Blue Screens In Windows 8.1 (DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION)

(Last Updated On: February 26, 2018)


The issue you get error DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION when you play any game.

We have found that you are facing this issue due to btfilter.sys, hal.dll, ntoskrnl.exe and others.

A btfilter.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 may be responsible for the btfilter.sys errors occurring on your computer by 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 btfilter.sys errors.

Temporarily disable NOD32 Antivirus and scan your computer with Microsoft Defender Offline.

Disable antivirus software or any security software installed on your computer temporarily.

Scan and Run Windows Defender Offline.
