Windows 10: BSOD while watching streams
After I uninstalled Microsoft Office, I checked all my programs and it seems that I managed to remove the cracked ones.
So far I have not had another BSOD, but you can begin troubleshooting whenever you can.
With what program do you watch streams?
Given the bugcheck & parameter + that other things don't crash your system it is clear that not the video card or drivers are causing problems even though the bugcheck indicates a video problem which usually relates to the drivers or the GPU itself.
Please update the BIOS to the most recent version

I finished updating my BIOS to the latest version "B85M-K BIOS 1011". So it's possible, by updating my BIOS, it'll prevent such issues from happening in the future?
I also changed my USB Network Adapter to one that has Windows 10 compatibility and updated the driver to the latest version.

I had this one before with the default windows driver:
Download for TL-WN823N V1 - Welcome to TP-LINK
That possibility is present, it mainly depends on the changes though but looking at the changes it is a change that helps stability
So it's possible, by updating my BIOS, it'll prevent such issues from happening in the future?
Great! I've been watching streams for a while and it seems to be fixed for now, I'll update this thread if I encounter any freezes/BSODs.
Thanks a lot for your assistance!
FYI, freezes aren't the same as BSODs and we usually don't help with them in this section of the forum.
Freezes leave only the 'unexpected shutdown' log behind (event id 41) and don't generate a dump or something which we use to analyze crashes, the same is with restart/shutdown crashes and as such they can be more difficult to troubleshoot as there is less data you can get a lead from.
BSODs leave dumps behind because a function for it is being called for prevention of corruption or when corruption already has occured (happens sometimes) to prevent more corruption. With a freeze, shutdown or restart this function isn't, or rather can't be, called because it isn't a crash where Windows can prevent data loss.
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...
I recently built my custom computer and every time I watch a video on Youtube or any other streaming channel the computer crashes and says that it will restart but it doesnt do and I have to manually restart it myself. Any help would be much...
First off I'm on a fresh install of windows 10 x64 the latest Nov. build
I was watching some streams on twitchtv just letting it play not doing anything else on the Pc after two hours of that the bsod occurred saying system_service_exception.
I have a BSOD watching an online stream, I don't know if it's related but games that my computer should handle fine have been lagging whilst some more demanding games run perfectly.
