Trying To Restore Quarantined Files Causes Blue Screen


Recommended Posts



I just downloaded Immunet 3 to try it out and see what kind of results I would get and if there was anything malicious on my machine.

I ended up doing a full scan and a few files ended up being quarantined. No threats though as I know these files and are from programs I use (false positives) along with some old backup files from long ago.

However upon trying to restore the files my system blue screens. I even tried different files. I went to look into the quarantine folder, figuring I could just copy them back and add some exclusions, but looks like Immunet secures them with numbered extensions.


How do I get my files back out of Quarantine as I don't want to keep blue screening my computer?


Immunet 3 Free (

Windows 7 Pro 64-bit SP1 - English US

No other AV software

Happens right when I click the "Restore" button

Looking at the minidumps, they say that the problem is caused with the NTFS.sys file and "RESOURCE_NOT_OWNED"


Let me know if there is any other info necessary. Email sent with SDT report

Hello drumnj,


I don't think the cause of the blue screen is directly related to Immunet. This problem can occur for many reasons such as a timing problem with the Ntfs.sys file, which may cause a resource to be released even though you did not acquire it and it is common that your PC will frequently crash with Error 0xE3 (RESOURCE_NOT_OWNED) when running the same program.


Digging into your minidump's information - NTFS.sys file and "RESOURCE_NOT_OWNED" - by searching the web you can find plenty of information on similar issues and fixes. (A simple Google search was plenty for me)


I didn't happen to see your SDT report in our support email - support@immunet.com - and if you would like us to look into this issue further please send that our way again.

I sent the SDT right after posting this thread, same address. Sent again just now.


Messing with stuff I was able to restore a couple of files, only those on the C drive. Those quarantined from other drives still produce the blue screen. Also, the only minidumps (bsod) I've had are from this software....since I reinstalled win7 fresh 1 year 3 months ago. Another thing is that I now have to uninstall/reinstall Immunet in order to do anything as it will say agent isn't online. I can only use Immunet until I reboot after installing; so after blue screening I can't do anything until I uninstall, reboot again and install. I think this might be a separate issue and aggravating to say the least.
