Blue Screen of Death: "kmode exception not handled: easyanticheat.sys"

I’ve been playing rust without issue for the past two months now and today when I try to log on after work I get a blue screen and I get the message in the title.

Things I’ve tried (in order):

  • verifying integrity of game cache
  • Uninstall and reinstalling easyanticheat
  • Uninstalling and reinstalling Rust

still nothing works, and I noticed one other person with the issue but no fixes. I’ve done a lot of research about kmode exception not handled and none of it holds a solution to the problem without uninstalling easyanticheat which obviously doesn’t work out since the goal at the end is to be able to play Rust.

This is starting to become really frustrating as I’ve been trying to fix this problem for several hours and its really silly that the anti cheat service, not even the game itself, is preventing a legitimate player from being able to play the game.

Im having the same problem since earlier today. Ive also tried everything tareyes12 has mentioned. Some help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

The issue somehow has changed now. It pops up as “Rust Launcher Error: LoadingError - EasyAntiCheat cannot run if Kernel Patch Protection has been disabled.” and the fixes on the internet for this problem is to simply reboot your computer but that didn’t work when I tried it.

mine is still having the same problem. the BSOD.

Let’s continue troubleshooting in the other thread: Thanks.
