    since days I have the BSOD problems.
    The PC crashes more times a day.

    I looked to change the RAM but this doesn`t help.

    Is their anybody having an idea?

    Thank you for your help!

    For the first thing, try uninstalling MalwareBytes and seeing if that stops the BSOD's
    The crashes blame farflt.sys - a MalwareBytes driver.

    I have other concerns about this system (written below) - but they may not directly affect the BSOD's.

    Your BIOS dates from 2010 - I would seriously wonder if Asus still supports this motherboard.
    - I would check the Asus website to see if it does support W10
    - I would update the BIOS to the latest available, W10 compatible version

    Less than 5% free space on your D: drive. Windows likes 15% free space on all drives so it can work in the background without causing problems. You can usually get away with 10% free space without noticing any significant issues. Please free up space on your D: drive immediately.

    Last Windows Updates date from early August. Please visit Windows Update and manually install ALL available Windows Updates. Make sure that your drivers are updated also (instructions on it here: Enable or Disable Driver Updates in Windows Update in Windows 10 )

    If all of this doesn't help, then please post back with the results and we'll move on from there.
    Good luck!

    Thank you, it seems like the MalewareBytes was the problem and the deinstallation solved it. What I didn`t understand is the Windows Update part. I always do Updates and the System tells me everything is fine and actually. So what should I do?

    You've fixed this problem, so the system is working properly now?
    If so, then there's not a lot to do.

    The point here is that this motherboard dates from the time when Windows 7 was first released (I had one of these boards).
    As such, Asus won't support it indefinitely (if they are supporting it now - which I wonder about).

    I had 2 problems with this board:
    - the ASACPI.sys driver caused BSOD's (updates seem to have fixed this)
    - the chipset didn't work well with my RAID card (I fixed this by upgrading to the V2 release of the board)

    As long as the system continues to work properly, then there isn't a problem.
    But, eventually, there will be either:
    - a security problem, or a
    - a performance problem
    These will come to light when doing updates. If the affected software isn't updated, then the problems won't be fixed.
    But there's lot's of things that need to be updated:
    - Windows
    - System BIOS
    - System drivers/software
    - attached devices/drivers
    - applications/programs
    Your issue will be if any of these aren't supported (and aren't updated) any longer.
    At that point you'll have:
    - problems that can't be fixed, and/or
    - security problems that compromise your system and your data/information

    In short, what I'm saying is that, in the near future, you may face major, unfixable problems with this system.
    What is the solution? Well, it's getting to be time to purchase a newer system that's going to be supported for a while
