Windows 7: Random BSOD that seem to point to afd.sys and netio.sys

Random BSOD that seem to point to afd.sys and netio.sys

Hi, for the last few days I've been getting quite a few random bsods that have pointed to either afd.sys or netio.sys. I'm not very tech savvy so I have no idea what this means. I've attached the files and performance report for someone to take a look at. Please, any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I'm not sure if this is the cause, but they seem to have started once I deleted avg antivirus. I'm using Windows 7 Premium 64bit

Open a command prompt, right click on the command prompt icon and select run as administrator, then type this command to repair lsp/winsock

netsh winsock reset

Press enter

Reboot/restart your computer.

I would also update your network drivers, these use adf.sys.

I would also check for malware on the system with malwarebytes.

In addition to the good advice Seth gave... your logs show recurring problems with finishing Windows Update. As the WinSock drivers (standard W7 stuff) is giving you problems and crashes.. make sure you finish WU:

Please go to your Maintenance Center and check the Windows Update status. Make sure you are up to date, do them one by one manually if needed.
