Keep getting BSOD's to do with Wininit.exe

Hello

I keep getting a BSOD to do with Wininit.exe. Every time it's happened, is when i'm browsing on the internet.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit retail version.
Intel i5 750 with 8gb of memory
It's a new windows install because recently got an SSD and Windows is installed on that.

Couple of problems

Your avast is first and foremost I would remove and replace with Microsoft security essentials



http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear5.exe



Virus, Spyware & Malware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials





Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.

To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

Read here for more information
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.

I've removed Avast and installed MS SE. Is there some issue with Avast on Windows 7 or something?

Ran the System file checker and it said at the end "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations"

Good news on SFC and Avast, McAffee, Kaspersky, Symantec, all are known causes of frequent BSOD's in win 7 (and so far win 8)

I'm afraid uninstalling avast hasn't worked, still getting BSOD's. Sort of getting them every other day and they all point to wininit.exe
