    BSOD on multiple machines


    I upgraded from Windows 7 pro 64 bit to Windows 8 pro 64 bit on two computers and all went well for a day. After that I get the BSOD on both machines at least 8-10 times each day. I called the Windows help desk and was less than satisfied with their analysis skills since they did not even seem to care about looking at the DMP file even after I mentioned it several times. I zipped the dmp file in case anyone can read it. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome
    I have just resolved this idential problem three times already today. You must uninstall your current anti virus and use the built in Microsoft Security Essentials/Windows Defender. Start with a restore point first, so that you can go back in the event of problems.

    I took your advice and uninstalled Avira antivirus. I am now just using Windows 8 Defender. So far no crashes. I will give it a little more time before I declare victory.

    I have licenses for Eset, Avast and Norton, all seem to cause serious issues. Blocking services, causing hangs filling event viewer with warnings and errors.
    Since I removed and used defender I have had nothing in event viewer errors or warnings, and the system runs very well.
    It's still very early days I guess, but people are saying Windows 8 compatible when they clearly are not.

    Avira


    The antivirus was clearly the problem on both of my machines. As soon as I removed it, all was good.
