AHhh sorry about that whole quote thing! It's okay, you can be a nag, you're offering this help for free!
Okay, about the AVAST thing, Its strange because I thought you saw that before and I removed it before but it's still there? I will try to get that out of there. I gotta work today so I'm not sure when I'll be able to get to it (today)
A few things I'd like to mention; I figured out how to see in Event viewer the crashes ONLY so I could see when they started. It was actually Dec 2. There were 12 total critical events recorded. Although I can't recall the longest period between crashes it appears as though quite a few days could go by, or I might even get two on the same day. Then I checked to see when I did that big Windows update. (Under settings, security, updates, update history) Dec 2... do you think it's a coincidence?
Yesterday I noticed there was a system update for my system that addressed several issues; Windows Update KB4057291 so I installed it.
