PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (50)
Invalid system memory was referenced. This cannot be protected by try-except.
Typically the address is just plain bad or it is pointing at freed memory.
Arguments:

Arg2: 0000000000000002, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.

Palo Alto endpoint protection and Windows defender is there in the VM.

Please help me to find whether this is an OS issue or an anti-virus issue or the Arcserve backup agent issue.

    caagstart.exe is a generally a CA ARCserve Backup program. Often when an executable fails, the executable itself has been corrupted. Try re-installing you ARCserve Backup environment. If that fails, you may want to contact CA to have them help you troubleshoot their application in your environment.

    Hi,
    0x50 STOPs can be down to a faulty system service or NFTS corruption among other things.
    For dump,
    SYMBOL_NAME: nt!MiSystemFault+fb4

    MODULE_NAME: nt

    IMAGE_NAME: ntkrnlmp.exe
    PROCESS_NAME: caagstart.exe
    ntoskrnl = windows kernel. Its not the cause, just what crashed. Process: caagstart.exe was crash.
    Enabling the driver verifier with standard settings may produce more informative crash dumps.
