Re: [BSOD] STOP: 0x000000f4

when you are installing a program, is it to the C: drive?
are the C and D Drives on the same physical disk?
do they use the same IO bus controller?

The error message will change each time since its quoting memory addresses where windows has broken at, and these are assigned dynamically

I would tend to suspect an intermittant hardware failure on either the physical disk, or the IO bus controlling it.
It could be the drivers as well, I guess but imo its hardware related.
To verify this, take the drive to another computer and test it there. If it happens on that computer too then its the physical drive which is at fault, and you want to be doing a backup and reinstall on another pretty much asap
