Windows 7: Random BSODs

Random BSODs

Hello everyone,

I am posting on a friend's behalf who can't access the forum at the moment. He randomly experiences BSODs after 5-10 minutes of using his laptop. I can't run BSOD Dump & System File Collection app because I can't access his laptop.
His spec is Asus K53SV
Intel core i7
Nvidia GT540m
4 GB Ram
500 GB Hdd
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.
I have attached his minidump file.
Also I've opened it in Windows Debugging Tools.
Invalid system memory was referenced.  This cannot be protected by try-except,
it must be protected by a Probe.  Typically the address is just plain bad or it
is pointing at freed memory.
Arg1: fffff8a00a1f6000, memory referenced.
Arg2: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.
Arg3: fffff8000318a079, If non-zero, the instruction address which referenced the bad memory
Arg4: 0000000000000000, (reserved)

Crash indicates avast! as the culprit. Your friend should do the following steps:
  1. Use the avast! uninstall utility to uninstall avast!
  2. Download a fresh copy of avast!
  3. Install avast! with the fresh installer
  4. Do his regular routine for twice as long as it normally takes to get a crash, or do the things that normally cause crashes.
  5. If crashes still occur, uninstall avast with the avast! uninstall utility again.
  6. Replace avast! with either of these:
    After installing your security software, update it, and then run full scans today with each program. Report back the results of the scans.

If the above does not work, tell your friend to start his own thread so we can get the full information through the jcgriff2 tool.

Thank you for the reply. He did tell me that when he had avast! scan his computer, his laptop wouldn't crash at all, so it is related. I will let him know. Thanks again for the help!

You're welcome. Let us know how things are working after re-installing or removing avast! (whichever he ends up doing).
