Hello to the community!!

This was a custom built PC (OS included- currently using) that I brought from an online seller last month.
I've been experiencing several BSODs for the last 2 weeks,. most of the BSODs occur after playing Skyrim though I just had another one right after booting when its just about to load the desktop.

Note:
I've intentionally disabled automatic updates (after SP1 update) since it slows down my already slow internet connection, I do however have SP1 installed. I also updated my graphics card driver and I installed Skyrim.

A critical OS process was terminated, probably Related to avkmgr.sys Manager Driver from Avira GmbH. I would remove and replace with MSE at least to test.

How can I uninstall AntiVir Personal software?

Thank you for the quick reply,..
I do have the free version of Avira installed, as recommended by the seller, I'll try to do your suggestion today.

But how can Avira be related to the BSODs when I'm playing Skyrim? Any help is appreciated,.

Thanks

In order for a malware application to be effective it has to examine everys single file when they are running,. The game is no different Avira looks at it to make sure it isnt an infection.

I am suspecting that my BSOD is being caused by AMD Catalyst 12.1 (since its a preview and not official WHQL drivers) but im also speculating it may be Anti Virus' too aggressive real time protection. I am attaching my minidump to the post. The only clue i have (which i can't read, and yes this...
