I have attempted to load and launch the blackberry link software on Windows 7 64 (machine with no issues prior), only to have it immediately cause a bluescreen of death on launch. I see that I was not the onle one with the issue, but the other topics I search appear to have been abandoned without resolution.
Any advice? Removal (including folders in PF) and reinstallation does nothing. Netio.sys is the faulting application, with stop code 0x00000050 PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. File name for fault is ntoskrnl.exe+f3cb0.
Please redirect me / others here if this has already been resolved elsewhere.
Any further information you need to assist will be provided promptly.

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
Thanks for the question.
To resolve this issue we will need to gather logs from BlackBerry Link. Please contact your network service provider and ask to be transferred to BlackBerry so we can investigate.

Thanks for the reply, but that doesn't make sense to contact a cell provider in regards to the BSOD to Blackberry Link. It's a desktop application, and never comes in contact with the cell network. Link software never even gets a chance to launch to create a log before failure at this point. As soon as it interacts with netio.sys, system crash. I am generating the dump file for upload now.

Here is some more information, as I had some time in the last little bit to play with this.
1) I completely removed all BB / RIM related software from the computer. This includes BDM, Link, Program Files, Common Files, Registry locations and files.
2) Restarted computer
3) Downloaded another copy of the installer for Link (1.0)
4) Installed, ran the software. Worked. Signed in under my profile.
5) Attached new Z10 device to the computer. Noted that the driver failed to load for windows.
6) Waited, and eventually when the device connected and started to communicate with Link, that is when the crash occurred, referencing netio.sys on the BSOD message (Dump reports issues with ntoskrnl.exe).
Attached is the latest dump, that looks just like the old one:

Repeated the above process for my desktop workstation which is as known stable as my laptop:
Same issue. Same BSOD.
I believe this may be directly related to the OS of my phone, or the phone itself.
You guys let me know what you think, or request any further details.
Edit: After the BSOD on the desktop, the machine rebooted. On logging in, it crashes again with the same error. Safe mode -> MSCONFIG -> Unchecked all BB/RIM applications off from start up. Rebooted. That points back to the application being the issue all by itself again. Terribly confusing.

I recieved a pushed update from OS 10.0.10.63 to 10.0.10.85 via WIND last night and installed that to the device. After that was completed, I ran USBDeview on the computers to completely uninstall any USB drivers related to the handheld.
Following that, I performed another completely clean installation of the Link software (see notes above). Computer still crashes immediately on sign in / connection of USB cable to the device in an either/or scenario.

I have the same problem here, blue screen any time I connect the device.
I removed and installed BB Link. Same problem.
Anybody that can help and escalet this issue to BB?

I don't know if this is the same bug, but I had the same symptom when connecting my Z10 recently. So just in case it helps someone here's what happened:
I got over this by:
Now I'm extra careful as I connect the phone so that I enter a valid code into the pop-up dialog.
