BSOD Kernel Security Check Failure on Windows 8.1

Asked by Zaza101 on 10/20/2013 at 3:36 AM
I've just upgraded my computer to a i7 4770k/new MB/SSD, and did a clean install of windows 8.1. I've done all the normal tests on my cpu/ram/gpu and all of those seem to be working perfectly.

  • Trying to install Intel INF installation (i was able to later install this driver by using onboard video instead of my graphics card)
  • Saving a file form my Avermedia c127 capture software. (please note there is no windows 8.1 driver for this, but it works most of the time)
  • Switching tabs on Firefox.
  • Watching a YouTube clip.
  • Installing audio card drivers.
2-3 times today i got this error and the computer restarted:

"KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE"

And got the following from the event tracker, these events have been consistent with every crash:

6:06:06: Kernel-Boot - There are 0x1 boot options on this system.
