Please use the search function if you are getting a BSOD in Windows 8 caused by Avast!'s system drivers! There is now 8 or 9 different topics for the same, exact subject in this board. Don't make more unless you've read through them all and know for sure that your issue is not the same!

Here are a few from just the first two pages alone:

A patch has been made as a temporary solution, which is also meant to help the Avast! team resolve the issue for the next update. Please update to the latest version of Avast! available, and then follow the instructions found here:
http://public.avast.com/~rypacek/patches/

(See the one titled "aswnet patch: Patch for aswNet.sys, BlueScreen in NETIO.SYS on Windows8")

Jeff, The patch you are referring to is for Avast 7 only.....
That is the only version affected under Windows 8.

The behavior shield causing black screen on startup on Windows 8 has been reported many times but it hasn't been fixed yet. :(
Moreover, Avast Adblock lacks the ability to add more subscriptions and even the ability to manually block an ad on a page. :(
There're also the performance issue. It slows down my Windows 8 startup significantly compared with Avast 7 on Windows 7. :(

You've posted about it in the wrong topic, my friend. This topic is about Windows 8 having Blue Screens Of Death caused by Avast! 7's usage.
