    A freeze crash isn't the same as a bluescreen crash and thus won't produce anything.
    Suggested to not use the USB network adapter.

    Hi Axe,

    Not using the Wifi adapter not but still it blue screens. I am grateful for anything else you might be able to suggest.

    Also do you think Microsoft will allow me to reuse my Windows 7 key? (This install of W10 is a standalone install) W7 is an old disk I have.

    Cheers Matt

    Normally you should be able to use your key again, there is only 1 type that can't be used again but that type is mostly only used for laptops.

    Is your installation a clean installation or an upgrade?

    Windows 10 is a clean install I brought the disk when I built the computer.

    My Windows 7 disk is from my old computer.

    Run driver verifier to find the offending driver.
    NOTE: it may take a few times to find the offending driver, even with driver verifier the offending driver is not always shown.

    warning   Warning
    Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
    Please create a restore point.

    Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

    Some windows drivers are blamed in a few crashes, but that usually means that a 3rd party driver is actually the cause.
    Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

    Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

    If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

    Note   Note
    Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.

    I will give driver verifier ago when I get home.

    Just in case I now have a copy of Windows 7 Pro.

    Thanks for the help so far Axe.
