  1. hello

    i'm getting blue screen problem from 2 months. my pc is 5 years old.

    TuneUp Utility System information
    Processor: intel(R) pentium 4 CPU 3.00GHz
    L2 cache : 2,048 kb
    memory 1024 mb (76% used)
    motherboard: Intel Corporation D915GAG

    Monitor pulgin and play
    Mode : 1028x768 WITH 32BIT rate color depth

    when my PC was new i use to play NFS GAMES and other "call on duty" like hell
    after some 8 months, MY PC started to show "bluescreen". i realised i was putting lot of strain on the pc and stopped playing such games . i also serviced my motherboard.

    from then i was like getting 1 or 2 bluescreen alert for a year.

    but now from past 3 months i'm getting more bluescreens.

    from past 5 years the bluescreen alert which i was getting was only lasting 1 or 2 seconds only and immediately was getting restarted. but now the bluescreen which i'm getting is lasting some 3 to 4 minutes with process of memory dumping till 100 % to happen, then it will get restarted

    it created 2 files
    MEMORY.DMP ..... size 0.99 GB
    Mini012912-01.dmp ...... size 64 kb

    ASWSP.SYS= an Avast Antivirus driver file... Are you running XP? Is it updated to Service Pack 3? Is Avast updated and running properly?

    i'm using AVAST from past 4 years and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from more then 2 years. i'm suddenly getting this alert from 3 to 4 months.

    what might be the reason

    They're showing in the minidumps. Remove them temporarily and try what I suggested. It may have something to do with Service Pack 3 or a more serious malware infection
