I`m going mental with this latest release of Windows......blue screen crash after blue screen crash...four in one session....isn`t it time for a less elephantine version of the OS for graphics /photography.....too much invested to jump to Mac at this stage....

Could be a number of things. How old is your computer?

It may be driver / compatability issues with older hardware.

which suggests you recovered the situation each time. I had a similar situation (Windows 10) about 6 months ago and I eventually solved the problem. However, the solution was lenghty and, although I don't like redirecting queries from members to other websites, tbh it's easier to provide the link to the website that I used rather than go through the procedure ( which I can't remember in any detail anyway !) . However, I remember that I had to uninstall/re-install several programmes and some updates.

Btw, I assumed you are using Windows 10 but if not there are other sites dealing with earlier versions of Windows.

HTH.

Blues screens these days are usually some sort of hardware issue, did you get a note of the error message ?

The computer is all up to date with enough ram, decent hard drive and a good chip....its possibly a problem with the death of some google pages....... and the size of windows 10 I think....it seemed to appear after the last update was installed which was around the same time as I started to remove some google junk. I only use the damn thing for Skype, E mail...Facebook, Spotify and the web ect as I process, scan, store and upload on another machine. Will look at the error codes more closely next time!

If you go to This PC->Manage->System Tools->Event Viewer, you'll see a list of errors. Clck on them and you'll get an Event ID with time of occurrence. That can give a clue. A Search on it should come up with something useful.

I had the same problem.
Sorted it the other day, if you go to settings and windows updates, click on troubleshoot and run it....
Mine came up with all is well and I thought 'yeah right' but then the update said it was ready to install. Click on the update.....took ages, computer kept restarting but finally when the computer restarted properly it said 'welcome to windows 10 Oct update' or words to that effect.
Had no crashes since.
Sorry I cant be more technical .
