    Svchost.exe crashing since April Updates?

    Hello all,

    For some reason, I noticed several svchost.exe crashes in the Reliability History ever since I installed some Windows and Office updates from April 2016. The program that is tied to the svchost.exe crash is the Program Compatibility Assistant Service. The crashes has occurred 3 times till now, it's random and I have no idea how to trigger it. It happens once around every 3-6 days.

    I have attached the errorlog and the updates that I installed before this issue.

    Windows 8.1 Pro x64
    CPU i5-3570K
    GTX 660Ti
    8 GB RAM

    Anyone else having this?
