Boinc version: 7.16.11 (x64)
Widgets version: 3.0.1

For roughly the last week Boinc has been causing my computer to crash and restart. I'm not sure exactly when this started as I was away for a few days. It took me a while to isolate the problem to Boinc, but in Microsoft event viewer and I noticed the error "The driver detected an internal driver error on \Device\VBoxNetLwf." So after seeing this I assumed it was VirtualBox and shut down Boinc. I have made sure all my drivers are up to date and even updated VirtualBox but still when I run Boinc the computer will crash. I have noticed it seems to be almost as soon as computing starts, but then i am not always at the computer when it happens.

The projects I am running are GPUGRID, LHC@home, Rosetta@home and World Community Grid.

Ok, so apparently "The driver detected an internal driver error on \Device\VBoxNetLwf." is a red herring, but i have very little else to go on. All i know is that when i run Boinc my computer crashes (no BSOD) then reboots. If i dont run Boinc everything is fine. Anyone able to help at all? any more information needed? I want to be able to run bionic again as I have done so for years and have never had any issues.
