Windows 7: BSOD on Shutdown; "Driver IRQL not Less or Equal"

BSOD on Shutdown; "Driver IRQL not Less or Equal"

Hi All,

First time posting on this forum, please let me know if you need additional information. About a week ago my laptop (Asus, Windows 7, 64 bit) started to get a BSOD on shutdown. The shutdown starts as normal, then when it gets to the part where it goes to something similar to the start up screen, it quickly gives a BSOD. After the BSOD it restarts, then i'm able to shut down as normal at the start screen, no BSOD. This has happened every time i've tried shutting down for the past week. Today I tried to restore the computer to an earlier time, but got a BSOD there as well and the restoration failed.

I've attached the zip file requested in the instructions. Any help is appreciated.

---------
Uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. At least as a test. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one; as the installed antivirus failed.

Report us for any further BSOD.
