Symantec believes that the BSOD is being caused by a stack space resource issue.  The reason the pgpwded.sys driver is being seen in crash dumps first is that the pgpwded.sys driver is the last to be loaded.  Thus, the pgpwded.sys driver seems to be the tipping point for the BSOD.  But it is not, in fact, the cause.  Here’s why.
