I'm trying to use Process Monitor but I get a BSOD saying aswSP.SYS crashed.
aswSP.SYS is Avast! antivirus self protection system driver file.

Do you know why do I get this BSOD and more importantly how can I make Process Monitor work without uninstalling avast antivirus?

I would choose another AV protection, Avast has many issues in Windows and there are better choices Free and Paid. –  Moab May 21 '12 at 14:23
    
@Moab What AV protection would you recomend (free and paid)? –  david.s May 21 '12 at 14:36
    
@Moab Why do you say "Avast has many issues in Windows"? Can you give me some more information? –  david.s May 21 '12 at 14:37
