Yeah I guess so.
So AVG is your only Av now?
Did you download it from AVG and is it the newest version which is AVG 2011 Free 10.0.1390?

Yeah I switched just now to MSE.But I haven't had AV for quite some time and why would the cause be in the AV?Anyway received a blue just before uninstalling AVG with the remover and I'm starting to think nothing can be done about this except buying a new pc which atm i can't.
Are you really attached to it or would you be willing to change to another AV to make sure the AVG will not be the cause?
If you are ok with changing i would suggest first go HERE and get MSE AKA Microsoft Security Essentials.
Then go HERE and get the first link in the list.
Uninstall AVG and them immediately install MSE. You may find your bootup time will be less as well as your system speed may increase. There seems to be a general consensus that AVG is a resource hog and can slow your system down.
WARNING: DO NOT go online till you have the MSE installed as you will have no Virus or Malware protection.
There is no previous owner the computer is manually built by me with parts.
If AVG is the cause by uninstalling it then the problem should go away.
It is possible that the previous owner may have tried to uninstall it and part of the program is still there causing the system to BSOD on you.
Okay the system was stable for about a day and a half and just received another BSOD.
I understand your hesitation but no AV is going to be able to catch everything. There are to many new infections created everyday.
With a AV, Spyware, Firewall and malware program installed along with safe internet surfing habits you can cut down the potential for a infection drastically.
Also another good addon we suggest is WOT or Web Of Trust for your browser.

In my bios there isn't anything about the hdd but some of these under power options.
Two options for this BSOD... Video card or the configuration for the HD in the bios.
I'm going to try the HD first.
You will need to boot into the bios or setup area depending on what your system calls it.
Normally that is achieved by tapping DEL when you first tun your system on. Yours may be F8 or F2.
Once there go into the advanced or hd area.
Highlight your hd and then see if it is set to ACPI/APIC and if so either disable it or change it to IDE.
Let me know if it works.
Some posts ago I said its a manually built computer by me so it's a desktop yeah.
OK I just realized i don't know if this is a desktop or a laptop.
