Windows 10: Occasional BSOD while watching videos/streams online

    Occasional BSOD while watching videos/streams online


    A few times a week, BSODs occur while I'm watching online videos or streams. The BSODs are always related to ntoskrnl.exe or other system files (I checked with WhoCrashed and BlueScreenView). I have to mention that I keep all drivers updated (apart from an AHCI driver that causes HDD clicks on certain Samsung drives, documented here: HDD click (excessive load-unload cycles) | Intel Communities).

    Here is the debug file: Attachment 76411

    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you for the fast reply! I suspected PrivateFirewall, as the program was not properly updated for Windows 10. I will uninstall it and report back.
