    Bitdefender Install Borked It???

    I've been getting BSOD's periodically ever since installing a trial version of Bit Defender last Sunday. Going back with a pre-install restore point did not help. Tried that again today, but the restore failed and all the restore point files were gone after reboot. I've also done a driver upgrade. I did a clean install of Win 8.1 from DVD a month ago, then upgraded that to Win 10 and installed my apps. Things were just fine until last weekend. Hoping someone here can help me out!

    I don't see anything newer on the HP website for your system.

    If you have not done so, please try turning of Fast Startup:

    warning   Warning
    Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
    If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

    An easy way to get remove these drivers is by using a restore point prior the installation.

    Please remove / disable items from the startup in taskmanager
    These programs could interfere with the boot process giving you trouble and increase the boot time.

    Please (re)move some files to increase the free space to at least 15%.
    Every partition needs at least 10-15% free space so Windows can do its thing in the background, 15% is to be on the safe side.
    warning   Warning
    Less free space could cause BSODs or other problems, because Windows cannot perform the tasks it needs to do in the background!

    Please make sure your pc is configured for small dump files How to configure minidump | Windows 10 tutorial.

    Again, thanks for the quick response! Unfortunately I have no restore points; the last time I tried to restore the restoration failed and the system removed them all. HDTune health reports some CRC errors and suggests checking the drive cable; I opened the laptop, reseated the cable at both ends. After restarting, the CRC count remains the same. The error scan came back 100% clean. The drive is a SanDisk 500 GB SSD I installed about 4 weeks ago.

    The CRC isn't something to worry about, it is about communication errors that could be there from day 1

    Since there are no available restore points, is my best move to do a system restore, or what would you suggest? And thanks for the comforting news on the CRC's!

    There is no system restore point but you ask if your best move is a system restore point?

    I meant recovery, not restore ... in other words, reinstall Windows keeping my data in place.
