part of symantec internet security caused BSOD, possible corrupt installation, try uninstalling all symantec products to debug problems related to this error.
it's a symantec file installed when you install norton antivirus, it's not dangerous by itself. But when you try to install other softwares like emule, windows will automaticly shut down.

Best practices for resolving SPBBCDrv issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with SPBBCDrv. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the SPBBCDrv.sys process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
