  1. At first I thought it was overheating as I'm on a laptop and summer is here, though this latest crash came while I was actively monitoring system temps with speedfan (temps were normal 50C under cpu load). This system has also had errors with windows update in the past, and this most recent crash came while a hotfix for Windows SQL Server was being applied (this update has always failed to update). Here are my last 3 minidumps.

    Start by uninstalling Avast with this removal tool and then install Avira free version.

    Also run a full scan with Malwarebytes then copy and paste the resulting log into your next post.

    I would also suggest (as a precaution) you download this rootkit scanner. http://www.gmer.net/ Download it to your desktop and then double click on it. It will automatically run a quick scan and warn you if it finds any rootkits. DO NOT do anything else with it. If you get no warning then just delete the program from the desktop, but if it detects a rootkit open a new thread in the Malware forum and provide the logs as requested in the "Read this before you post" sticky at the top of the forum.
