Windows 7: Problem playing 1080p mkv's

AV is worse than a virus. Believe me, I know from all the bsod and poor performance machines I've fixed on here alone.

I haven't ever ran into an issue from users complaining of malware. Or never any malware issues in the crash and debug section. Not one. Ever.

Use that to be a guide.

Torrentg, Are you now advising that people not use AV products also? Surely you are not...Use a good AV product and do not download any file from any source that you are not positive is secure.

Yes, actually I am advising that.

Malwarebytes scan every so often, jotti.org, smart downloading habits and common sense is all one needs.

Perhaps throw in the No-Script, RefBlocker and Adblock Plus Firefox plugins too.

So much better than a low-level application slowing down a pc and potentially causing bsod and many other issues.

I strongly disagree. (as does Microsoft and all security vendors):

...and then visit the Crash and Debug section of the forum so we can run the dumps to see that the antivirus gave them bsod.

First of all, BSOD are are driver/hardware problem and have all but been eliminated in W7. Second, if an AV product prevents a system from starting or running properly, it is likely due to user error.

"According to Microsoft, bluescreens on NT-based Windows systems are usually caused by poorly-written device drivers or malfunctioning hardware. In the Win9x era, incompatible DLLs or bugs in the kernel of the operating system could also cause bluescreens. They can also be caused by physical faults such as faulty memory, power supplies, overheating of computer components, or hardware running beyond its specification limits."

I find no advise more valuable than that given by security vendors and Microsoft per my links above...

No dude. You don't realize what you're saying. Go visit the Crash section and see for yourself. Or search the forum for my user name.

Well, actually you are correct in some respect. The drivers for antivirus cause most bsod.

It's not user error. It's poor av software. AVG especially.

How about the advice of someone that repairs 20+ machines in this forum alone, per day?

You could also ask Chev65, ZigZag3143, Usasma - guys that do debugging along with me. They'll all tell you how antivirus causes most issues.
