  1. Success finally. All updates installed and Avast 18.8 running OK now. @Vistapocalypse. Thanks for your link to spiceworks. I was following that thread too and the persistence of @spicehead-3vg61 grabbed the attention of @Peter (Avast) mentioning my original post here at MSFN. The first Avast/AVG micro-update (released in April) did indeed change my registry settings for Csrss as @artomberus showed in his screen shot (but in my case using Avast instead of AVG) but my system was still BSOD on reboot. Avast was showing:- Avast program version 18.8.2356 (build 18.8.4084.0) Virus definitions version 190521-4 After confirmation from @Peter (Avast) on 4th June, I ran the Avast Emergency Updater: (just to be sure) (at this stage I had not seen a difference in the ‘About Avast info’) C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\AvEmUpdate.exe as detailed here. After a reboot: Avast now showing:- Avast program version 18.8.2356 (build 18.8.4084.0) Virus definitions version 190606-4 It appears that Avast Free (For Home) did not update to program version 19.3 (and later to 19.5) as indicated here for (Avast Business Antivirus) but remains at 18.8, BUT now the second micro-update (within the Virus definition update) (released on 4th June) has resolved the BSOD and I am now up to date with MS Updates...Phew!

  3. Hi, First time poster here. I have the same problem that Jaguarek62 reported but do not use VMware. Vista Home premium with Avast Free 18.8.2356 Build 18.8.4084.0 Def. ver.190521-4. All been running Ok with monthly Server 2008 updates up till April 2019 update Kb4493471(also tried Kb4493458) now get BSOD stop error 0x0000008E WIN32K.sys (Kernelmode exception not handled) Tried disabling Avast in MSconfig and services.MSC but still same. Eventually managed to boot into safemode and uninstalled update and all working OK again. Decided to leave this update out and wait till May Kb4499149 but sadly still the same BSOD stop error. Next, removed Avast with Avastclear and installed Kb4499149 successfully. IE9 updates have not been a problem. Tried a fresh install of Avast and back to same problem. Seems I will not get anywhere with Avast solving problem as they want you to update to W7 B4 they will entertain a support request. I will just have to use Windows Defender instead for a while and maybe fingers crossed an emergency fix might come out from Avast? Just sent them a quick note about problem as a bug/report a problem as well. What other free AV products are out there for Vista/Server 2008 that won't suffer this problem?
