Easy, your Norton/Symantec. Remove and replace with Microsoft security essentials

Download and run the Norton Removal Tool to uninstall your Norton product | Norton Support

Its much better than Norton (in terms of BSOD's) in my estimation, uses less resources, and can easily be removed (unlike Norton)
