WinsockAFD-2014...dmp 800 mb size


Recommended Posts

hi,

 

why ccleaner not delete this file?

windows regularly creates this file with current date

Windows assigns the self as a waste and you can delete it on the drive activity-cleanup.

why not ccleaner?

 

attach file is not running...

location of this file in windows 8.1

C:\Windows\LiveKernelReports\WinsockAFD-2014*.dmp with 786 mb

It would be a good idea to find out why this file keeps getting created in the first place.

 

It may be a graphics driver conflict or something like that.

 

Perhaps download Who Crashed

 

http://www.resplendence.com/whocrashed

 

or Blue Screen View

 

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html

 

and  see what is causing the errors and then you can do something about it.

 

Do you get any other messages?

 

What av are you using?

i have download the tool "who crashed" but it seems to verify only "c:\Windows\Minidump" -not "c:\Windows\LiveKernel..."

 

on my laptop no blue screens surfaced until now.

 

i got no any other messages, but in the event viewer are occasionally error messages - no graphic problems

 

my av is AVG2015 free

 

:wacko:

yes, I did:-)
But I still do not realize why Windows created a "* .dmp" with the size of 800 MB. The normal size of a *.dmp is around 300 KB or less right?

 

the normal path of system error-logging is C:\Windows\LiveKernelReports\WinsockAFD "WinsockAFD2014....dmp" round 259 kb size;

 

but this enormous file with 800 mb size is C:\Windows\LiveKernelReports "WinsockAFD2014....dmp"

 

both are the same file-name, but enormous size difference...

 

I had the error-reporting and the system error-logging disabled in Windows 8.1.

What are you running when these dumps are made?

What AV?

 

I don't think \LiveKernelReports is a normal Windows dumping ground for errors.

Chances may be that some other program is creating these dumps; a game, video driver.....

I dont know what was running at the time of the creation of these files ...

my AV is AVG2015

 

possible as it is actually the Nvidia driver, although it since I had the file deleted from recently, there has been no further such files. (the nvidia driver had crashed a few times in the past...but not in recent times) but some of these files were created without nvidia crash.

does really create nvidia after a crash his "log- or dump-file" in this directory in this size?

it could not be windows itself? I had the dmp creation turned off at the system control, because I can not do with the report files as a normal user ... now i have it reactivated.
