Hi there

I am experiencing repeated crashes to BSOD and cannot understand why. The cause is described as kernel power.

Can you remove Kaspersky and see if the problem persists. The cause appears to be from the keyboard filter driver from Kaspersky.

Can you please install Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes anti malware as an alternative.

Thanks a lot thedoctor, it seems to work for now - but how can I do without my favourite AV software? Am not sure about the degree of protection I'll get with Essentials and Malwarebytes... maybe you can advise

thanks again

At the moment we still recommend MSE and malwarebytes because they are still good at protecting systems.
You can try installing Kaspersky again or try their contact support page but I don't recommend it.
