I see. But i have another PC under windows 7 and I also use Avast AV free edition and system works just fine.
If I uninstall avast, what do you suggest I should use as av solution?

EDIT:

I removed Avast and and installed Avira free AV. Ill keep my PC running for couple of days and then see it the BSODs are gone. Ty for the suggestion.

Can you use arguments in your post, like use that because that etc.? I used MSE earlier and I really dont like it. It kills PC resources, memory the most, and as I have this issue on the PC that has only 1GB of DDR it will slow the OS so much I wont be able to use it anymore...

EDIT:

Avast is removed and Avira free av is installed. PC is working one day without BSODs.
Ill keep u informed.

2 days with no BSODs after Avast AV removal. I'll keep this thread posted about PC status after 5 days and it dont crash I think this problem can be labeled as solved.

Until then, all the best.

Final summation on the issue:

Win 7 is working fine for 5 days now. No more BSODs. It seems that Avast free AV was the cause of the BSODs.
Why is Avast making these BSODs remains a mystery, especially because I have another win 7 PC (quite newer though) with Avast free AV and all works like a charm...

I removed Avast and installed Avira free AV. I'll continue to work in this confuguration.

well I thought that BSODs stoped and they did for few days but then they started again.
PC crashed 2 times today and friezed 2 more.

Can someone else get through dump files and give me some other suggestion?
Ty in advance.
