Blue Screen Of Death - SmartDefragDriver.sys


Recommended Posts



I did a Driver Verifier because my computer keeps freezing whenever I am streaming/watching any video online. 

After I did a driver verifier test, the system generated a BSOD screen showing a Driver Verifier Detected Violation regarding SmartDefragDriver.sys
