No virus found on scan last night.

We'll see what happens to the BLUE SCREEN crashes.  Sure seems like there are a lot of complaints going on about them and they all started at roughly the same time.

If you could upload the minidump files (latest) to mediafire and post the sharing linkI will have a quick look see
I feel this is something system specific as I have never experienced this problem on XP or 7


Or you could upload to avast.incoming with a note like BSOD with Avast

Either which  ;D

You are going to have to be more specific than that.

Could you see if you have a folder called C:\windows\minidumps
If so could you upload the latest minidump to Mediafire and post the sharing link.

Can't find anything.  Lots of old .dmp files but nothing this year.

Should I uninstall the programs that you had me upload or leave them?

Subject to no further problems   :)

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems

 Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean  :thumbsup:

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset  System Restore points: For ASWMbr just delete the desktop files

Run OTL
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following

    Quote
    :Commands
    [resethosts]
    [purity]
    [emptytemp]
    [EMPTYFLASH]
    [CLEARALLRESTOREPOINTS] 
    [Reboot]
  • Then click the Run Fix button at the top
  • Let the program run unhindered, reboot the PC when it is done

Run OTL and hit the cleanup button.  It will remove all the programmes we have used plus itself. 

We will now confirm that your hidden files are set to that, as some of the tools I use will change that
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Do not show hidden files and folders.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.

   Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application.

Upgrading Java:
  • Go to this site  and click Do I have Java
  • It will check your current version and then offer to update to the latest version

SPRING CLEAN
 
Download and run Puran Disc Defragmenter
For the first run I would recommend a boot defrag and disk check




Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:
 
Malwarebytes.  Update and run weekly to keep your system clean

Download and install FileHippo update checker and run it monthly it will show you which programmes on your system need updating and give a download link

It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To keep your operating system up to date visit To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read our little guide  How did I get infected in the first place ?
Keep safe  :wave:

This didn't end up well.  Computer crashed and burned.
