Avast! AV. Printer Canon iP1800 BSOD issue. Confirm, please?

Hello,

Since having Win 7 as one of the OS's on my 64 bit desktop (one year), I have persistently experienced BSOD's (studied with no solution on other threads). Recently I reinstalled it clean (and backed it up with Linux PartImage) and it ran perfectly for two months.

As part of my system specs, I will include here that I utilize a Canon Pixma iP1800 printer. No problems, and was regaining faith in the OS until...

I installed Avast! AV. I immediately started getting BSOD's again as soon as I started using the printer. I uninstalled the AV, and all seems well again. Avast! was the same AV I was using before (when I was having the previous difficulties).

Please, is there any known history of Avast! causing problems with printers on Windows 7, particularly the iP1800? Anyone?

Thanks.

Hi.


Not particularly
with iP1800,but...


...Avast in some cases conflict not only in printing but in general windows usage.



So is better for you to uninstall (and don't use) avast.



Download,install and use Microsoft Security Essentials with windows firewall.



MSE is fully compatible with everything and never causes any troubles.

Thank you.

Turns out I already have MSE, updated and all. If that's all that is needed, I am happy!

Solved, unless there are any further comments on this issue.
