Information: BSOD caused by Avast Anti-Virus software.
« on: October 12, 2012, 04:36:25 AM »
Hi,

Just to let you guys know that the latest Avast Free AV edition(which I believe is version 7.0.1466) was the cause of my occasional BSODs. The item in the Avast system software was the TDI driver....

 So I guess until this issue here is fixed, I am reverting to an alternative branded anti-virus software...perhaps AVG 2012 Free edition? Or I might test out some of the other paid ones to see if they're of any better than the free ones.

Thanks for reading!

159. ;)

Betas usually fire back more problems then complete latest 'stable' ones....so I prefer to have the least amount of problems as possible.

Thanks.
