    Dpc_Watchdog_Violation


    Hello and Thank you for the attention.

    I just bought a computer and I got the DPC_watchdog_violation Blue screen.

    I installed avast free antivirus, but I searched on the forums and I have already uninstalled it.
    I want to know If I need to uninstall another program.

    Thank you in advance and Greetings!

    Sounds like a driver problem.

    WHS is correct, it is a driver
    Its your Avast. Uninstall and replace with the free Microsoft Security Essentials/Windows Defender, which is part of the OS
    Use the free Malwarebytes for a weekly scan, for even more protection
    If you have an avast firewall replace that with the Windows firewall

    First of all sorry for my bad english. I didn't explain clearly the situation.

    I got the Dpc_watchdog_violation blue screen. After that I did an investigation on this site
    finding I needed to uninstall the third parties antivirus so I did, but also I got the
    dump (following the forum format) file when I got the last blue screen with Avast antivirus
    installed at that time.

    I hope uninstalling Avast solves the problem, but with the dump I sent is there another issue in my computer?

    Thanks and greetings!

    Those dumps do not give answers, but only clues. The clues in yours point to Avast. Start with a system restore point so that you can go back if things dont work out.

    Thank you for the answer, I will read about dumps because I don't understand a thing. Avast was my issue then.

    Thank you for the help!

    I just wanted to post here, that the DPC_watchdog_violation Blue screen doesn't appear anymore, I was the antivirus fault!

    I've been getting the dreaded Windows blue screen too, losing documents and chats along the way. DPB_Watchdog_violation is a hugely vague problem, one site suggested it was a firmware problem with my hard drive, but I don't want to tamper with that, that could lead to more serious problems...I don't have Avast or other anti-virus software, just the standards Windows 8 anti-virus stuff.

    I wonder if it's my Sata hard drive connections...those are the loosest, most flimsy cable connections I've ever seen in a PC, they wobble all over the place.

    Thanks for your help everyone.

    Cheers

    Tim
