Windows 7: BSOD new computer

11 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
BSOD new computer

Any help in identifying the reason for the BSOD. Maybe due to ZoneAlarm Free which I loaded. I uninstalled ZoneAlarm last night and will run the computer for the next couple of days and see if I still get the BSOD.

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
OS installed by Sony (new computer) OEM
Purchased in December 2010 directly from Sony

Hi WEJ and welcome to the forum.
You've made a good start removing Zone Alarm firewall. Download the Zone Alarm remover and run it when you are in safe mode to clean up.

AVG is known to be a cause of BSOD's on some Win 7 systems so you need to uninstall it.Download the correct AVG Remover for your system. Download Microsoft Security Essentials as its replacement. Uninstall AVG, Re-boot to Safe Mode. In Safe Mode run the AVG Remover tool. Re-boot to normal mode and install MSE.

Update these drivers. Look to your manufacturers or motherboards website first:
