    Invalid kernel auto boost lock release

    Twice while doing random activities (palying LoL and browsing the internet) I BSOD'ed with the error "Invalid kernel auto boost lock release". I just built this a week ago and already crashed a few times so I want to fix it, but don't really know what the issue is

    Crash dumps shows possible contribution of "Asrock Extreme Tuner" in the crashes.

    BugCheck 3B, {c0000096, fffff800043bedf4, ffffd0002c6a8de0, 0}
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for AxtuDrv.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for AxtuDrv.sys
    Probably caused by : AxtuDrv.sys ( AxtuDrv+1df4 )

    Please try the below steps.

    1. Uninstall "Asrock" Bundled softwares.

    Both "Asrcock Appcharger" and "Extreme Tuner" is known to cause issues with Windows 8" . Please uninstall both of them and any other Asrock utilities installed on the system.

    2. Uninstall "Daemon Tools".

    "Windows 8" doesn't need any third party utilities to mount ISO images. Please uninstall "Daemon Tools" and use the native ISO mounting function.

    Unfortunately I can't tell if the problem is fixed since the BSOD is random, but hopefully this fixes it. Thank you very much for your help!
