Windows 7: Critical Process Died

Critical Process Died

Hello, again.

I bought this laptop 2 days ago, and yesterday I was thinking about installing Windows 7 or 8, I ended up installing Windows 8, eventhough I don't like it, I installed a bunch of those programs that make it look like Windows 7, and everything was fine, I installed a bunch more software from my old computer and I was just downloading a couple games over-night so I could test how good it really is during today, there was no problem yesterday, at all, and I made it auto-shutdown when the downloads were completed.

Today I start the computer and it starts scanning the disk, I'm like: "Brand new laptop, should be fine", nope, stopped at like 10% (can't be sure) and restarted, when it restarted it went into this blue screen with a "" and saying something like this: "Look for help with this report: "Critical Process Died"".

I researched on the problem and looks like no one is sure about it, some say it's a HD problem, and others say it's something to do with Avast! (which I did install).

ASUS N56VZ
Intel Core i7-3630QM 2.4GHz
500GB HD Space
6GB RAM
GT650M 2GB + Intel HD 4000 (???, I actually looked this computer online and then went to the shop to buy it and nothing, anywhere told me that it had an Intel HD 4000, only found out yesterday went I installed GPU-Z, quite strange...)

One thing is for sure, I won't be keeping Windows 8 aftet this ._. .

Thanks.

Honestly you may want to copy/paste this post to the win 8 forum.

It's largely the same crowd as here but you're more likely to get the guys with actual first hand experience using win 8 there.
