can you be more specific on the BSOD? what does it say?
if you google your problem you can come up with a solution, as you see, many people have had the same problem.


to the first who replied..what more info could u need?? ive identified it as an avg free problem or vista causes an issue with avgfree. microsoft if its you im not surprised your the cause of more stress in the world than anything else..no woner vista isnt a slaes frenzy. if its avg ive told there forums..i couldnt wait for avg to acept resposibility or fix it so i got avira antivirus instead from download.com ..if anyone does find out what was wrong in avg id still like to know, heres to the next 1000 bluescreens im sure ill get in next few years!
