My problem is that redsn0w.exe keeps crashing

I am on Windows 7 and am running redsnow as administrator.

This is an iPhone 3GS.

If you need any info on the iPhone, here it is

I am on redsn0w for windows 0.9.15b3

I am trying to downgrade using redsnow by going to extras, even more, restore

I choose iPhone2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore

I then put it in DFU mode. As soon as it's done with the uploading limera1n stage redsn0w.exe crashes. Once I run it again, it goes right back to where it was with the progress bar, but now the iPhone just boots normally and redsnow says missing keys.plist

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!


EDIT: I have SHSH blobs saved for 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.1, 4.2.1, 4.3.3, 4.3.5, 5.0.1, 5.1.1, 6.0.1

Uninstall any antivirus other than Microsoft Security Essentials. MSE is the only antivirus known not to interfere with redsn0w. Note that disabling an antivirus program is usually insufficient; you must uninstall.

if you already saved your shsh trough tinyumbrella, choose pwnd dfu in redsn0w. after that click on restore, select your ipsw 5.1.1 and choose your shsh. should work.
