Windows 10: cpuz138_x64.sys causing PAGE_FAULT_IN-NONPAGED_AREA on boot Solved

    cpuz138_x64.sys causing PAGE_FAULT_IN-NONPAGED_AREA on boot


    Exactly what it says on the tin. I've already ensured that CPU-Z, GPU-Z, OpenHardWareMonitor, Speccy, etc. are not/no longer installed on my system.

    What else can I do to ensure this issue stops happening?

    Welcome to the forum,

    It seems to be a remnant still stuck in the temp folder.

    Check this location,

    Code:
    C:\Users\DRAGON~1\AppData\Local\Temp\cpuz138\cpuz138_x64.sys
    Delete that whole folder cpuz138 ​and see if that helps.

    That is a hidden folder so you need to unhide it,

    I'm unable to delete the folder. I receive an error message stating the folder is open in another program.

    I'll see if I can use Process Explorer to find and close the program that is using the folder.

    E: It seems that explorer.exe is holding it open, but only when I am viewing the folder. However, this makes little sense to me - how am I to delete the file when what I must use to delete it is preventing me from deleting it?

    You can try safe mode,

    Do you really want all those startup programs? You've got quite a list.

    Most of those programs I have set to boot with Windows are ones that I do want to boot with Windows. Unless there's some I'm not aware of?

    I'll see if Safe Mode will allow me to delete the file.

    Safe Mode did the trick. As for the startup programs, Pidgin is disabled. I just haven't removed the .lnk file.

    Some of those other things - like OneDrive, BTSync - I will be disabling. Most of it, however, are things I do want to start up right alongside Windows.

    No problem. I see you marked this solved so I guess you are confident it is.

    Have a good one.
