Update for a fix of BSOD

Guys I just thought I would chime in with a update on my BSOD on my system. If you remember I was getting a BSOD about 1 time a week I change everything I could thank of from changing hardware to software and changing settings in the bios. After reinstalling W7 3-4 times the only thing that was the same was the software I was using. So I started to download my programs one at a time and the next week I installed another program I was checking my event log every day without any problems (UNTIL I DOWNLOADED AVG) I started getting warning and a few errors and then BAM a BSOD. I restarted windows and it ran fine for 5 days and then out of the blue a BSOD again, About one time a week this would happened. So I uninstalled AVG and downloaded microsoft security essentials and for 3 weeks not one BSOD and the system runs great. I guess it is something about my set up that AVG don't play nice with?? I just thought I would tell you guys that are having BSOD problem check your software first so you will not go through the nightmare I went thought. Maybe this will help?

It seems like AVG causes a lot of problems for a lot of people. Personally, I avoid it like the plague after it messed up my XP desktop pretty bad.

Hi -

Thank you for posting back with the solution.

AVG has been acting up in the last few months.

MSE is an excellent choice.

I hope that your BSOD-free days continue in perpetuity.
