    BSOD when opening speccy.

    Formatted yesterday using an iso and so far I've tried opening speccy.exe which is a freeware utility and sometimes it crashes giving a bsod. Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum,

    Yeah, it's actually the CPU-z part of it that crashes,

    Uninstall speccy and make sure that driver is removed from the location I highlighted above.

    That's a hidden folder so you need to unhide it,

    You can try the portable version of Speccy and see if that doesn't crash.

    So I uninstalled and deleted the .sys file but when trying the portable version the .sys file comes back in the same location.
