Windows keeps crashing more frequently & more violently, mostly but not always while playing video. It used to Blue Screen but mostly now it makes a grinding hum & shuts off immediately, the PC stays on & now the noise continues till the PC is shut off.

Found a possible solution, hope it works:

"I suspect that this problem is not directly bound to Avast! (in any case this canít be considered a bug of the application because Windows 7 is in beta status and so isnít officially supported by Avast! Antivirus)

The fix was simply to uninstall Avast!, replacing it with another free antivirus: Avira Antivir, that seems to run smoothly without any problems, also on Win 7".
