    Kernel security check failure


    I have windows 8.1 - and never had this happen before so I need help fixing this issue.
    My computer keeps crashing (luckily it does restart). I am horrid with computers so please explain as plain English as you can - and thank you.

    Your DM Log collector Tool does not have dumpfile(s) inside.

    Please check if your system is configured for collecting dumpfiles. (6. To have Windows Create a Small memory dump (Minidump) File on BSOD

    If you are using CCcleaner or similar Apps please uncheck deleting dumpfiles option.

    You have many windows update faillures in your eventviewer.
    Try runnng this windows Fix It https://support.microsoft.com/nl-nl/...e-issues/en-us

    In eventviewer i found:
    The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device ACPI\ENE0110\5&2dc12fb7&0. ( could be Radio Switch Device)

    Thank you so much - I have updated the driver/ fixed the windows updates and created a minidump.
    Why is a mini dump needed? I am just curious.

    Ill update and see if I get anymore crashes and if not I think the problem is solved!

    **Edit - Nope is still crashes. I noticed it happens whenever I use Adobe photoshop? I re scanned =P

    A dump file, also called a memory dump, contains the data from the memory at time of the crash.
    When a system crashes (bluescreen crash), the data of the memory will be dumped (saved) into a full memory dump called MEMORY.dmp located at C:\Windows\ standard for debugging purposes.
    A minidump will also be created, usually located at C:\Windows\Minidump\ (Minidump folder usually is automatically created).This file doesn't contain as much memory data as a full memory dump and isn't useful when someone wants to debug the whole process of what is going wrong, why and how, you need at least a kernel dump for that. A minidump usually does contain enough to find the cause.

    A full memory dump standard will be overwritten everytime a crash occurs due to the size, it would take too much space if this wouldn't happen.
    A minidump doesn't need to be overwritten, because the size is very small.
