This morning my computer showed a blue screen during boot and promptly shut down.

Four attempts failed to reboot it, but on the 5th try it booted with the message that windows had recovered from a ????????. Did not have the time to read the rest of the message !

Is there anywhere that I can go to to read the complete message and maybe see where the problem occurred ?

Running Vista Home Premium.

Bug check string = Driver IRQL not less or equal

Caused by driver = aswSP.system

Caused by address = aswSP+1ae38

File = AVAST! Self Protection Module

Product Name = avast anti virus system

File version = L.0.999.0

Not that I know, but it looks like to me, that Avast had a need to protect it's self from something! Anything I should do ?

Thanks Speedy

Uninstall Avast, its the cause of the crash. Then use the uninstall tool (http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility) to remove the rest of it. Are you using 64 or 32 bit?

32 bit

When I uninstall Avast, any recommendation for another AV ?
