Windows 7: BSOD - netio.sys - most likely utorrent related

BSOD - netio.sys - most likely utorrent related

Hi, here is my problem. Evertime I run utorrent for some time (from 2 to 20 minutes) I get a BSOD. It says driver_irql_not_less_or_equal and mentions netio.sys (youll find said screen in the attached files). I have seen related posts on this forum but the advice was mostly to deactivate Mcafee and update drivers wich does not help me.

Here are the specs of my computer

Windows 7 HP 64 bits (pre installed)
Intel Core i5-2467M (64 Bit)
Intel HD Graphics 3000
4GB Dual-Channel SDRAM
240GB solid state drive

I used AVG, uninstalled it and now run avast free (BSOD with both)
I don't think I have microsoft security esentials installed (or at least I can't find it)
Driver scanner said all my drivers are up to date

Thanks in advance for helping!

You have McAffee and Avast running at the same time. Never a good idea and possibly (dare I say probably) the cause of this problem.

I would un-install both and replace with MSE.

Hey, thanks a lot!

I feel stupid since in the end I also just had to uninstall Mcaffee like others on the forum but I couldn't see it anywhere on my pc (nothing appeared in the program list) so I really didn't know I had any Mcaffee software...

Anyway thanks for helping a loser like me haha
