I wonder if we have finally got there with Windows 10’s many BSOD crashes.
Since my last post on the subject in late January, I have had a few more BSODs, but (knock on wood) things have been more stable for a few days. Then again, I haven’t pushed the computer quite as much. Here’s how the Reliability Monitor is looking:
Changes since my last post included adding lines to eudora.ini to switch Quicktime off, which seems to have stabilized that program, and brought the number of appcrash crash messages down.
However, when I did get a BSOD a few days ago, it looked like this (again after using Explorer):
The memory dump revealed nothing new; it was the same as the one I saw when all this began (as far as I can make out).
The big change seemed to have happened after I installed the Intel chipsets, and the number of crashes reduced from dozens to between seven and ten.
I don’t think I have got to an absolute cure yet, but we are getting closer.
The cumulative Windows update (KB4058258) released a couple of days ago may have helped, too—if it did, it showed that Microsoft had released a lemon with the fall Creators update and rushed to fix things. The number of fixes during the month of January alone suggested that they knew that the OS was iffy. That update was installed yesterday.
