WDF_VIOLATION (Windows Driver Framework) in Windows 10 usually indicates that Windows found an error in a driver based on the framework. It is less likely that this error is caused by your hardware. Therefore, solutions to this problem are not so difficult to find.
This error message may also be accompanied by a stop code beginning with 0x10d or 0x0000010D. It may also appear under a different error name.
WDF_VIOLATION was very rare before Windows 8, but has established itself since installation. It most often appears when you sync files from your iPhone or iPod to iTunes. Although the problem was more common in iTunes 10, it still occurs in iTunes 11.
However, error code 0x0000010D may occur with a WDF_VIOLATION BSOD due to the USB or hard disk connected to the PC. According to reports, the error was the USB camera, so you must unplug all USB devices, including the mouse, camera, microphone and so on. It also explains how to disable USB ports in the BIOS if other methods do not work.
Here’s how to fix it:
Scan for a possible virus
As is usually the case with computer errors, there is a high probability that this particular error is due to a viral infection. Computer viruses can enter your system and damage and/or delete important system files, which can cause all kinds of problems, not just the WDF_VIOLATION error. Therefore, I recommend that you perform a complete system scan with your current Internet security solution.
Some users stated that they considered the offender an unwanted program or driver of a third party.
Therefore, it is recommended to run a full scan with the trusted antivirus program. If you find unwanted programs, simply uninstall them from your PC to see if the problem can be solved.
Disconnect all USB devices
If you have a wdf_violation BSoD error on Windows 10, you should try disconnecting all your USB devices. According to users, any USB device can cause this error, and there are reports that this error was caused by a USB camera. To correct this error, disconnect all USB devices from your computer.
Your problem may only be caused by a USB device, you may need to repeat this step several times until you find it.
Disable USB ports in BIOS
Some users suggest disabling USB ports in the BIOS as a possible workaround. To do this, you must follow these steps:
- Restart your computer and press and hold F2 or Del to enter the BIOS. This may be a different key depending on the motherboard, so you will need to try this step several times.
- Once the BIOS is open, go to the Advanced > Miscellaneous Devices > External USB Ports tab and turn off the external USB ports. Note: This process may be different for your BIOS version, so please refer to your motherboard manual for detailed instructions.
- Save the changes and restart your computer.
