    As we can see that the Graceful Shutdown was called but that resulted into a bugcheck. According to the exception, this would mean that a critical process was terminated unexpectedly.. If we dump the 1st and 4th Parameters of the Dump File :-

    I would advise you on running "SFC /Scannow" first with Admin Privileges in the Command Prompt. Once this is done, please run the below DISM Commands as according to the Dumps, the Windows SubSystem caused the problem.

    Here's the DISM stuff:
    Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt). Press Enter after each one:
    Code:
    Code:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    Code:
    Code:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    If the problem is fixable, you can use this command to repair it (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt). Press Enter after typing it:
    Code:
    Code:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    From this article: Repair a Windows Image


    Once this is done also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption.
    If the problem is still not solved then please remove the driver highlighted in RED as it is very well known to cause BSOD's. The Driver is associated with Western Digital Software.

    Also, remove the Daemon Tools till the time we are troubleshooting. Let me know how it goes ^_^

    Thanks a lot blueelvis! I ran scannow and DSIM though it didn't find any errors. Then I tried to uninstall the Western Digital driver and it seems to have done the trick.
