Free Avast Trashed My Bluetooth
« on: May 08, 2020, 08:34:09 PM »
I've had to completely uninstall Avast. The recent update on 5/6/20 caused my PC to not even have Bluetooth. The button disappeared to turn it on and off and there was no Bluetooth category in Device Manager at all. I was also starting to get blue screens of death referencing Avast driver file aswstm.sys. Once I completely uninstalled Avast and rebooted, Bluetooth was back to normal and no more BSODs. I'm leary to reinstall Avast. Has anyone else experienced anything like this with the latest update?
