    watchdog violation after windows update

    So I have an Old pc upgraded to Win 10, worked ok at the weekend. But after a windows Auto update I get a Watchdog violation every 10 mins or so. I guess some driver has been 'updated' by windows and is causing a crash ? Heres the log. Hope someone can help or at least tell me which driver I need to downgrade. I hate windows update it just breaks things.

    Hi happyhiker,

    I would suggest you to check Dell for driver updates.
    The Nvidia storage driver has caused the crashes.

    ok thanks, that makes sense as that caused BSOD on initial install. Windows Update must have backed out the driver.

    You can check it by looking at the Windows Update history :)
