    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!

    The reports are incomplete - but you go most of those that I use.
    Please do this for the remaining missing report:
    Please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type (or copy/paste) "systeminfo.exe >%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\systeminfo.txt" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Then navigate to Desktop to retrieve the syteminfo.txt file. If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back. Then zip up the .txt file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
    Please uninstall MalwareBytes. Only run one antivirus or one firewall at a time.

    Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web. Removing some drivers may make the system unstable - so if you're unable to find updates, post back for info on the one's that can/cannot be safely removed.

    Beyond this, as there was only 1 memory dump in the upload, I have these 3 suggestions:
    1. Get ALL available Windows Updates. It may take several trips to get them all
    2. Run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings
    3. Start with these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

    Hi! Thanks for your reply, really appreciate it. I uploaded the .txt you want. Is there a way to check which drivers are outdated and/or need updating? Like maybe an external program or something? Thank you!

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!

    Only 55 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 60 - 80 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

    Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available.

    As for the outdated drivers, I use the memory dumps to point out drivers that are involved in the crashes. Those that date from before the release of the OS (or it's latest Service Pack) are the one's that are "suspect". But this is merely because they are older, not because of any inherent problem with them.

    I do not use programs that claim to update the drivers. I find that they are not very accurate, nor are they very reliable.

    You can check your C:\Windows\System32\drivers directory and see the dates there.
    But then the chore is to figure out who wrote the drivers and visit their website (if any) to see if the driver is compatible w/Win8.1 or if there's a newer version available that is compatible.

    But, not all drivers are located there, so then you have to search the system for files that end in .sys.
    And when you find them all, then there's the occasional drivers that don't end in .sys

    In short, keep up to date with Windows Update and get the latest updates from the system manufacturer's website.
    Any problems beyond that will be dealt with in troubleshooting sessions (like we're doing here).

    Good luck!
