Copied that straight from my list of drivers. Should i be worried about that driver ? I will update you again if i get BSOD after deleting Avast. What antivirus should i use from now on or should i just stick with the windows defender ?

    I'll attach new SF file after i got that Ndis.sys Blue Screen. Hopefully you can give me some helpful info again

    Thanks !
    Hi,

    It seems that you are getting the BSOD's only when you plug in an Ethernet Wire. The driver for your Ethernet Controller which I suggested in my above post must be downloaded and installed in the following manner. Please note that the instructions might be a bit wrong but in case you have any problem do post back here ^_^.

    1. Download the driver from here and extract the ZIP file to a safe location for Windows 8 :- Qualcomm ATHEROS Network drivers for Windows

    2. Press Windows button and then type in Device Manager, it would be most likely found under the Settings tab if not found directly. Open it up.

    3. Under the Network Adapters dropdown list, right click your Ethernet Controller.

    4. Click on "Update Driver Software" and then click on "Browse My Computer For Driver Software"

    5. Point the location to the folder where you have extracted the ZIP file and then make sure the tick is there for "Include Subfolders" in case you have it extracted inside a folder inside that location.

    6. Click on "NEXT".

    7. Windows should find the driver software and update it appropriately.

    Let me know in case you face any problem. I think we should deal with this driver first before dealing with the Avast Now, as even your Event Logs suggest that the service has been removed.

    Do, one thing, do you get any option for Roll Back Driver when you go into the Properties of your Network Card from Device Manager under the "Driver" Tab? If yes, then try doing that. If you don't have that option then uninstall the driver from there and then restart the Windows to see if it fixes the issue or not.

    Leave it like that only and check whether you are still experiencing any BSOD's or not. In case of further BSOD, please do not hesitate to post back the latest SF Diagnostic Zip for further analysis ^_^.
