For some reason, after I began downloading a Photoshop free trial, my computer randomly made a “shutting down” sound, and the toolbar at the bottom of the screen disappeared for a few minutes. Then it came back.

After that, I tried running a smart scan with Avast, and then I got this bluescreen crash. When the computer came back on, I tried running the scan again, and the same thing happened.

My computer has been going seemingly slower than usual lately, but this behavior didn’t start until after I tried to install Photoshop’s free trial.

I’m trying to uninstall Creative Cloud right now, but it’s not working I got this error:

Windows cannot access C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe Desktop Common\ ElevationManager\Adobe Installer.exe

Error code: 0x80070043
The network name cannot be found.

I know this isn’t a computer tech forum, but I don’t know where else to ask this off the top of my head, and I don’t know when this thing is gonna crash again. This community is one of the smartest I’ve seen, and has a lot of people who know at least a thing or two about computer software.

I have my backup Surface computer, but its a small, buggy, fragile thing.

The OS of the computer having the problems is Windows 7.

EDIT: OK, nvm. It might just be an issue with a recent Avast Free Antivirus update, according to this other post I found elsewhere:

BSOD problems are very irritating. It leaves you helpless and occurs loss of several vital information. if you are having BSOD error on Windows then steps given in link given below will help you fix your issue.

Thank you. I’m not having them anymore since I stopped trying to run a smart scan via Avast!, so I think it really was a faulty Avast! update that was causing it.
