Which patch should I use? I have windows 8 64 bit pro. Do I need to use 32 or 64?
Use the 64-bit one. :)
That answer was already supplied to bradleybro28 in the other thread.

Hi guys,


we are still trying to come up with some fix for the frequent Win8 crash inside aswnet.sys.


Could you please try the following updated driver and post here if it performs any better?
The link and instructions are here:
http://public.avast.com/~rypacek/patches/


It is still possible we didn't hit the right bug, so if you can, please follow the instruction on the page above and enable extra logging. Any possible dump files will be more usable for us! Thanks a lot.
Lukas


PS: please enable Network Shield, if you have previously disabled it as a workaround. Thanks.


Edit: formating.

Just wanted to report that this patch has fixed my issue, no more BSOD.  It used to do it a couple times a day.  Thanks!

The patch fixed the bsods on one of my laptops however on my retina mbp with newest windows 8 pro x64 (bootcamp) the crashes still persist.

Did a fresh in install of Windows 8 Pro 64bit today and had the crash occur several times after installing Media Center.   Prior to running this install the latest Windows patches installed.  Avast! was this first program installed after setting up Windows.   Between Avast! and Window patches install several other applications were installed with no issues.  How when I attempt to setup Media Center or install another programs (Example:  Classic Shell) Windows BSOD.  Just install the patch and will see what happens.

I'm running Windows 8 Pro. Media Center and Classic Shell on a Dell Inspiron 64 bit Lasptop.
No problems, no crashes, no BSOD and no patch
The patch should only be applied if you're having a problem.

Hi all,

Installed Windows 8 as an upgrade to Windows 7 last week, and encountered a number of BSOD this week, as described here.  I'm running Avast Pro 7.04.1474.  This thread hasn't been updated since December, so I'm guessing that the patch is still the way to go, and that no other updates exist?  I did see talk of an update rather than patch a few pages back.

It's the DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD for me too. I thought I had a driver problem at first but after examining the dump file I found it was Avast free. Uninstalling it stopped the frequent crashing. I'll start using Avast again when the issue is sorted out.

There is a patch for it in the first post of this topic:

Uninstalling your security altogether puts your computer at a huge risk.

I just finished a fresh install of Windows 8 Pro 64bit (not an upgrade). Installed Avast Internet Security and several applications (Steam, Origin, FileZilla, PuTTY, Chrome) and the latest Geforce NVidia release drivers.

Everything worked great, no BSODS.

Next I tried to install the Geforce Experience Beta from NVidia (suggested during the Geforce video driver install) and it BSOD'd during the install. It indicated aswnet.sys in the error.

I rebooted, tried the install again and it succeeded. After which, I tried running the application and it produced the same BSOD.

I understand this application is beta, so not here complaining, just want to share a scenario that produces the BSOD.

Hi People. I had all above mentioned problems and found a silution that worked for me. I hope this will solve your aswnet.sys and BSOD problems too. I am currently running on Windows 8 pro with no problems:

1.   First download the newest Avast 8 edition available. That solved the aswnet.sys error.
2.   Upon instalation do NOT restart your pc when instalation is finished.
3.   Open the avast User Interface and go to the top security tab.
4.   Now select Behaviour Shield on your left hand side.
5.   Inside the Behaviour Shield page click on settings.
6.   In the next window click on Trusted Files on the left hand side.
7.   In the next window click on Browse.
8.   Now in the Browse menu go to: Computer> Local Disk C:> Windows and highlight the.
Explorer.exe file. Now click open.
9.   Click Browse on the second open line.
10. The program will open the Browse menu at the Windows folder. Now search for the ImmersiveControlPanel folder inside the windows folder and open.
11. Highlight the Control/Computer Settings.exe (unshure of precise filename but it's the only .exe file inside the folder)  file and click open.
12. Now when both files is listed click OK and close all avast windows.
13. Now restart your PC and continue as normal.

This is the solution that worked on my computer with win 8 pro with avast 8 home edition aswell as Avast Internet Security. I have no problems and no patches needed with a perfect running avast.

I hope this help
Best Regards

This seems to be some awful rigmarol just to get a program to actually work.
Thankfully i eventually got avast working smoothly but i must say i have never come across a program with so many reports of BSODS etc .

Hopefully v9 will not be a repeat of the v8 bsod horror stories.
