    General bad performance and IQRL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL


    Since doing a clean install with 10 I have had many performance issues from explorer being slow, context menus slow, start menu not working, and so forth. CHKDSK and SFC /SCANNOW return normal results.

    I also have a lot of issues with my video driver kernel crashing abd being recoverd. This mainly happens on wake. (GTX 970). I uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled as a first attempt, used DisplayDriverUninstaller on the second attempt, and on the third used Revo, DDU, CCleaner, and windows to remove it and I still get crashes.

    Finally I came to using the driver verifer tool to try and force a BSOD. After two days of use this is what I get, "IQRL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL".

    Hi zenixnet,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    A quick tip
    Partition Y doesn't have enough free space.
    Every partition needs at least 10-15% free space.
    Please move some files from partition Y.
    warning   Warning
    Less free space could cause BSOD's

    It seems that a VMware driver caused the problem.
    Please update VMware or remove it.
    Code:
    3: kd> lmvm hcmonstart             end                 module name
    fffff801`58720000 fffff801`58731000   hcmon    T (no symbols)           
        Loaded symbol image file: hcmon.sys
        Image path: \??\C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\hcmon.sys
        Image name: hcmon.sys

    Thank you for the reply. I think I uninstalled the VM software that used that driver, I didn't need it anyway.

    On a related note I saved the event logs for the video driver crash and the logs that happen around the same time. Are they something you could take a look at and possibly see what is wrong?

    The only thing that they have common is that it is all about shutting down software because it is not reacting anymore.
