Filter Manager causes Freeze

I have a problem, my computer has been freezing at random times. i checked the event viewer and i narrowed the problem down to being FilterManager because it was always the last error before i turned my computer off.
The error was:
Quote:
File System Filter 'Avgmfx64' (6.0, ‎2010‎-‎09‎-‎07T00:49:14.000000000Z) has successfully loaded and registered with Filter Manager.
I know this has a problem to do with the Anti-virus AVG, which i use. but every AV that i change it to i always get the same message but a different thing between the '....'

Any help appreciated?

If the problem has to do with AVG.
Why not uninstall and install Microsoft Security Essentials. It is basically trouble free and does a great job
If you start with a system restore point, you can try it as a test.

If you do uninstall use their unistall tool

You have to unistall that AVG and the driver.
Use the uninstall tool
After uninstalled
go to search type
cmd
in cmd type
driverquery
if that driver is still there post and I will get rid of it for you

Start with a system restore point to be sure.

Before you make any changes, always start with a system restore. Things can and do go wrong.
Make a point before any changes. If my idea does not work or something else goes wrong, you can go right back to where you are now, nothing gained but nothing lost

Did you check with driverquery to see if the driver is gone?
