Installed update Service Pack 1 for Windows 7.

Recently installed AVG Antivirus (the day before the update).

Also have HitmanPro and Malwarebytes free installed.

Do you think my crashes are caused by installing SP1 with Antivirus/Malware running on my computer? I read that was a possibility.

The .dmp file reads it was caused by ntfs.sys

This was all after I got rid of the new Spora Ransomware I was infected with. I made another thread concerning that (I have a Hackintosh and had some questions). The computer is definitely free and clear of that. Just wanted to throw it in there.

The crashes are random, none on startup or shut down. First one happened shortly after the update at idle when I went to the kitchen. Came back and the computer already rebooted. Second happened just now while just on the internet using Google Chrome. I just shut down the computer for now and I'm going to bed. Also before it shut down Windows installed 2 more updates randomly. I'll have to use the computer and see if it happens again when I wake up.

Thanks for any insight!
