Resolving System Crashes with Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) with America Online (AOL) atwpkt2.sys File

Last Updated June 30, 2008

Issue

You will receive the message, "System crash in ATWPkt2" because a conflict exists between the ATWPkt2 file and other networking hardware or software on your computer when executing America Online software.

Solution

To resolve, search for the file atwpkt2.sys (typically in the America Online folder) and rename it to atwpkt2.sys.bak. Once renamed, launch American Online.
