Windows 7: BSOD Twice under 24 hours unrelated usage during each

BSOD Twice under 24 hours unrelated usage during each

First time last night was having problems with my camera, switching USB ports to get it to reinstall drivers, and boom BSOD.

Multitudes of software running at that time - OBS, Skype, Audio Repeater...etc

This morning I get it again, just had 2 chrome browsers open and a TWITCH pop-out (ok so 3 chrome browsers then), and an older video game on the go.

In the past I've been told that Norton has caused some stability issues, but I don't have much choice in running it right now, so I'm hoping that's not it. Regardless, I did an update to the software (Norton 360) directly after the 2nd dump.

I think the issue is directly related to uTorrent as that was the common element during both crashes

Does it matter that MSE failed its AV Certification? (I believe it failed last Nov) It was then that I went back to Norton.

Why has this been an issue with Norton for so long? Any links to some reading I could do? Thanks!

Who certified MSE? A third-party? The AV testing sites are usually biased towards the paid security suites, since these companies aim to make a profit from their products, whereas, MSE is for free.

Norton is one of the most bloated products around, and it's had problems with numerous versions. There's many threads on here, where Norton has caused problems and other forums too like Sysnative.
