    fltmgr.sys is a Windows core system file.

    The file fltmgr.sys is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32\drivers and is 124800 bytes in size and belongs to Microsoft Windows Operating System.

    As a driver it can be started or stopped from Services in the Control Panel or by other programs.

    The program is not visible. The technical security rating is 0% dangerous.

    Some malware camouflage themselves as fltmgr.sys, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder.

    Try a start up in safe mode, if you can get it to work, and report back.

    Well, if safe mode runs, then I'd be interest in seeing if there's a good copy of that file in the opsys...do a search for it with "hidden" files exposed.

    Going out on a limb here, but I feel that you've got some malware running to cause the BSOD in standard boot-upmode that is now not running in Safe Mode....

    Run your anti-stuff in Safe Mode to see what they produce that way. Then reboot in normal and see if the BSOD returns.

    one thing i noticed. I only get bsod when my computer is on for a couple of hours. another thing is that its not just fltmgr.sys i also get irql_not_less_or_equal.
    I did a memtest for 3-4 hours, didnt find any errors. I have a quality ram sticks just to avoid this (dual channel GIEL).

    Are you using some Nortons program/s??

    Did it update before the system kept crashing?

    Looks like Nortons can cause this file to crash.
