Windows 10: BSOD when a game is minimized

    BSOD when a game is minimized

    Hello everyone, this is my most disliked thing of windows 10, The Incompatibility and lots of errors. In the factory installed W8.1 everything was fine, but Windows 10 Came in and ruined everything. When I minimize a game and leave it open, it just crashes the computer with THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER, which is very annoying, that mostly means, no looking up stuff on internet when I'm confused with a game. The game that I am playing is Kerbal Space Program Version 1.2
    Please help, because it's very annoying, I am using a laptop ASUS X550ZE

    Looks like there are some problems with Avast:

    ffff8680`2508f4a8  fffff801`c251ab10Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\drivers\aswSP.sys, Win32 error 0n2
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for aswSP.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for aswSP.sys
    ffff8680`2508f588  fffff801`c29d3f54Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\drivers\aswRdr2.sys, Win32 error 0n2
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for aswRdr2.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for aswRdr2.sys
    Try uninstalling Avast and run with the built in Windows Defender and Firewall for awhile, see if that resolves the problem. If yes then you can stay with Defender (it's what I use, along with Malwarebytes anti-malware and anti-exploit) or try a different AV program.

    Much prefer you to get rid of McAfee as well, along with Avast. Use just Defender.

    You can always download and install McAfee later if you feel it's necessary.

    is there any way of disabling mcaffee permamently, so there would be no activity of the antivirus, also Adobe Flash update installed some kind of quick scan, and Intel TrueKey

    No way to completely disable McAffee I know of. Just uninstall it for now, you can reinstall later if you want.

    When you downloaded Adobe, you should have unchecked both check boxes in the middle panel:

    Attachment 107049

    You should be able to uninstall them.

    The best way to get rid of McAfee is to use their McAfee Removal Tool: MCPR

    And about the BSOD's, it feels, when I disabled mcaffee, it didn't BSOD very much, no BSODs after disabling Avast!. Thank's for the help.
