Windows 7: BSOD while playing and only while playing AC4

BSOD while playing and only while playing AC4

So I play a lot of games on high settings like Skyrim, Saints Row 4, Portal 2 and now I've started playing AC4. For the first time after 2 months with this build I've gotten a BSOD. The first one I quickly figured out to be me forgetting to leave open a daemon driver, this one I just can't seem to figure out. Any help would be great!

I have attached the SF_debug result, thanks!

Hi there,

The first two drivers pointed to are from Avast,

Code:
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for aswSnx.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for aswSnx.sys
Driver Reference Table - aswSnx.SYS

Code:
Unable to load image \??\C:\Windows\system32\drivers\aswSP.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for aswSP.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for aswSP.sys
Driver Reference Table - aswSP.SYS

Uninstall that AV Uninstallers and install

Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows as it's known to not cause crashes.

The other driver is your display driver,

Code:
Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\atikmdag.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for atikmdag.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for atikmdag.sys

That is the 13.9 driver we usually recommend, you can try a clean install of that,

I'll try both of these things, I'll get back if I find another BSOD, as I've already gone through 3 with this game I most likely will Thanks!
