    Frequent BSOD while working - IMPERSONATING_WORKER_THREAD


    Hi there! We were doing fine with a computer upgrading to Windows 10, and it worked good for a while. However, now we're getting this BSOD several times a day, seemingly at random. I've updated all the drivers on the PC and tried to find any sort of solution online, but couldn't find anything for this specific error.

    From the dump I get:
    Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe
    IMPERSONATING_WORKER_THREAD

    but not much else. Would anyone be able to help?
    Thank you very much.

    I am seeing the same issue. The problem started on Thursday. A silverlight update occurred on that date. I have uninstalled silverlight and am waiting to see if it occurs again.

    Good looking out, looks like it happened on Thursday for me as well, and I see Silverlight got installed that day. Fingers crossed that uninstalling it fixes it, thanks!

    Let's hope it was Silverlight as the dumps have no useful information in them.

    Just bsod again, same error confirmed that no updates have happened since, and Silverlight is uninstalled. It did start Thursday though, same day as the update, is it possible that there's anything else it could have affected?

    edit: I'm going to do a system restore (point) to before the update to see if that fixes it.
    edit again: The system restore failed lol.

    Did a system restore from 06/21/16 on 06/27/16. Same BSOD.
    Updated Video, Chipset, Audio, LAN and Scanner Drivers as of 16:00. BSOD at 16:26

    I posted this problem on the Microsoft Community Forum and received an interesting reply:

    My misbehaving system is a dell Optiplex 9020. What about yours? Could it be a dell driver update that occurred in the background?

    I'm using a HP - HPE-450f. I don't have anything other than Windows Update to update anything. The only other common program used is CCleaner, besides work-related stuff (that no other users in the office have experienced issues with).
