0x0000007C BUGCODE_NDIS_DRIVER Blue Screen on Windows Server 2008 R2 with NLB

There is a blog post by a Microsoft employee that describes an issue where a virtual machine (Hyper-V or VMware) running Windows Server 2008 R2 will crash.  The VM is configured with Windows Network Load Balancing.  Their research found that the problem occurred with “certain” antivirus packages installed.  They didn’t (and probably won’t) specify which ones.  The two proposed solutions are:

  1. Configure NLB before installing the antivirus package
  2. Uninstall the antivirus package
