This has gone on for a month now, and my patience has worn thin.
Since Creators fall, my PC BSODs multiple times a day—between three and six is the norm. I had hoped that with the seriousness of this bug—one where I have lost hours of work—one of your subsequent updates would address it. That has not happened.
The error is DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, and the error is in tcpip.sys.
I have tried the usual SFC scannow and the routine copy-and-paste stuff I see on this forum. Drivers are all up to date and I have even gone to individual manufacturers’ sites to download theirs.
My suspicion is that there is some USB incompatibility between Windows 10 Creators fall update and the Asus motherboard I have, but Asus has no new drivers.
I say this as the system BSODs often when I use Explorer to browse files. The moment Explorer tries to access other hard drives, it can BSOD. One time my partner unplugged her phone and managed to BSOD the PC.
I have made sure that in the power settings, none of the drives are on a power-saving mode, but that has made no difference.
After running Windbg on the dump file, I get this:
In more depth:
I believe there is a serious bug here, one that did not exist with Creators spring, which worked reasonably well. I honestly have not seen this number of BSODs per day since a faulty machine was running Vista. This far exceeds anything I have experienced
with 3·1, 95, 2000, XP or 7.
Indeed, going back through the number of posts I have made since 10 was released, I have to conclude this OS has been a real lemon. Please fix this—whatever you did with fall and the USB control, change it back!
