The free OSR Learning Library has more than 50 articles on a wide variety of topics about writing and debugging device drivers and Minifilters. From introductory level to advanced. All the articles have been recently reviewed and updated, and are written using the clear and definitive style you've come to expect from OSR over the years.

We have a file protection minifilter that protects some files from getting written on. The problem is that on very few systems that have both kasperseky and our minifilter, sometimes the system "freezes", but its not a full freeze, mouse signals seems to still work because they can move the mouse, but thats the only thing that works, and for example cntrl+alt+delete doesnt work to bring up task manager. This happens both in Win7 and Win10 machines, And if they unload our driver, the machines no longer freeze.
The problem is that when the machine freezes like this, we can only move the mouse so the output of dbgview or procmon cannot be captured anymore.
So we set up the required keys in the kbdhid service's registry to force BSOD, and indeed that one worked and we managed to get a full kernel dump to work it and find out what is happening.
So I thought i ask the experts here on how should i go on about finding the root cause of this freeze? What windbg commands do you guys suggest i should use to find what is causing this?
