Win XP service pack 2
« on: September 27, 2004, 11:40:46 PM »
I have just built a new computer.
AMD 64 3000 2Ghz
512MB Ram
Maxtor 160 Gb Hdd
Asus ATI Radeon 9200
on a Foxconn 755/760A01 M/B

I have avast pro running, but am encountering sproadic shutdowns.
The Dreadded BSD reads.
WIN32K.SYS
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
*** STOP 0X00000050

I have read that some antivirus programs could cause this.
Has any one come across this problem?

Help if you can

Dan ??? ??? ???  :'(

Welcome to this board.


That error can be caused by bad memory. (New doesn't mean it can't be broken) You can test the memory with MEMTEST86

Have you already read the MS article about it?

frampo, I could be completely wrong but I think I've read something that the actual version of avast is not compatible with AMD 64bits.
You should wait for the next version (4.5) that is promissed for next days...  :-\

Frampo, please send me the contents of the directory c:\windows\minidump (at least a couple of most recent files from that directory).

Ideally to my email address.

Thanks

Well right... Current version of avast doesn't scan files properly under XP SP2 + AMD64 but should not be causing system crashes in any way.

To make current version of  avast work properly on XP SP2 + AMD64, the /NOEXECUTE switch from C:\Boot.ini needs to be removed (as already stated for a couple times here).

Thanks for the 'Bro' but I'm not from Alwil...
What can I say? I was promissed to the end of September.
It is in the last test phase... but we can have a Beta in next weeks...
Hold on  ;)

I have traced the problem to a bad stick of memory, thanks for the advice boys.
Hopefully will be receiving a new stick tomorrow.

Will keep an eye out for the new version.
