Title: aswnet.sys causes bsod in windows 8 pro
Post by: jpefley on October 26, 2012, 09:50:00 PM
It didn't do this in the beta but now I get random bsods pointing to Driver_Irql_Not Less than or equal too (ASWnet.sys) any ideas OH yes and the version yesterday did it and the new one released today as well.

Hmm, i got the same thing to, so maybe it's a bug in the software? Maybe its not compatible with Windows 8 kernal?

I seem to have been hit by the same issue. As if starting out on a new OS isn't hard enough, disable virus scanner? Yikes.

You need to be on version 7.0.1473, which was released today. I had the same error until I upgraded to the version listed.

Hi guys.

Avast! always interested in BSOD dumps. If you have the latest send it to ftp://ftp.avast.com

Or Start > Run; Copy/paste " explorer ftp://ftp.avast.com/incoming " without quotes. Drag dump file into the ftb window.

Look for the latest minidump in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump or in C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Do not know what kind of dump W8 generates.

Compress it with ZIP, RAR or 7Zip and give it an original name. It will also be a good idea to include a text (use notepad) with your Forum e-mail and URL of this post.

Come back here and report what name you gave to the dump.

I have also had 3 crashes today when someone else was using the laptop..Unfortunately Ccleaner has been taking the dumps off...I will try re-producing it tomorrow and upload it to avast...surely i didnt have such BSOD's earlier to this version.

Anyways,here is what it says:
the computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0x86213000, 0x86213328, 0x08650000)

I will try and reproduce the crash again [If I can] and upload the dumps for you guys  ;)

Same issue.  Search results point to Avast and I only installed the latest version yesterday.

I've had to disable it and rely on MS Defender until you get this sorted out.  Hopefully that won't be long.

I had the same problem after installing avast free to win8 two days ago. "driver_irql not less or eqal (ndis.sys). Bluescreen occured several times, after removing avast it is OK. I uploaded minidump ndis.sys (p6qwre). Please let us know after you fix it, I would like to continue using Avast.

You may wish to visit this thread http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=107886.msg858781#msg858781 and try the patched driver to see if it helps.

Hi Jmeyer, the crash is from the original driver from 1474. Would you, please, try to update to the patched driver, reboot, and post here if it makes any difference for you?


Thanks a lot,

Uploaded file canukBSOD_110612.zip.

I just enabled hybernation for the first time after installing Windows 8 RC when it first came out.  The Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal (aswnet.sys) BSOD came just as my system came out of hybernation for the first time.

Maybe related, or not, but worth an investigation.

Have you installed the driver patch from lukor's post prior to your own ?

I was finally able to get the patch installed.  It took two BSOD's later but I also uploaded another zip file canukhed_dumps110612.zip to ftp://ftp.avast.com/incoming/ because the BSOD's came at different scenarios.  I attempted to disable Avast! and the second BSOD came.  After the third BSOD I was finally able to disable Avast! in its menu permanently, then stop its service so I could apply the patch and upload the new dump zip.

Not sure if the patch is working but will let you know.  If I don't report back, then it works.

Thank you.

Not much use uploading dumps prior to the patch as you had already done the previously ;) you should be fine now with the patch installed as there have been no reports from other users since installing the update.

You need to restart your computer and re-enable all shields after installing the patch to see if it stops the issue. :)

As I mentioned quoting your other reply, you need to apply the patch after updating Avast! to the latest version.

I have the same problem, just installed Avast Pro (finally decided to upgrade from the free and this is what it gets me??) on Windows 8 x64. Is there any progress? I uploaded files to the FTP server from the Mini Dump.
