    BSOD: DPC_WATCHDOG VIOLATON (Windows Update Triggered)

    Hello there,

    Up until recently I've had no hiccups with Windows 10 (Enterprise).

    Unfortunately lately I've had to manually disable the Windows Update Service as otherwise a non-optional update seems to automatically get pushed through and triggers a BSOD with the error: "DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION"

    Once the error is triggered my system is doomed to a BSOD loop, the only recourse for which I've found is to "reset this PC" using the startup recovery options...

    It took quite some time for me to narrow down the cause to Windows Update but since disabling the service I've been BSOD free for almost a week. - The downside of course is I'm now blind to any updates which is always a security issure.

    Any advice? Tips? Points of reference for further reading?

    Much obliged,
