Crashes point to Kaspersky, Norton Backup, and/or ShadowDefender. Start removing these programs one by one and determine which is causing the crashes.

Removal tool for Kaspersky Lab products will help with removing Kaspersky.


If you remove Kaspersky, I recommend either of these:

Kaspersky was the process running during one of the crashes. The other two had drivers that were in the stack during the crashes or directly blamed as probably caused by ****.sys where the asterisks were replaced by the driver name associated with each of the two programs I mentioned.

Code:
BUGCHECK_STR:  0x50

PROCESS_NAME:  avp.exe
The above is Kaspersky...

It may be a conflict between Kaspersky and ShadowDefender. It may also have been a corrupted installation of Kaspersky or ShadowDefender causing issues. I assume ShadowDefender is now removed.
  • Remove Kaspersky as I suggested before.
  • Then, download a fresh installer for Kaspersky and install it.
  • Then install ShadowDefender from a freshly dowloaded installer for it.
  • See if you get crashes.
  • If so, remove Kaspersky with its uninstall tool and replace it with MSE and see if you get crashes.
