Windows 10: THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER BSOD error when browsing, and playing

    THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER BSOD error when browsing, and playing

    Yet again, I'm here with a problem. Not the same that I got when I had avast! antivirus. Today I just uninstalled avast! antivirus, because it made the computer get THREAD STUCK IN DEVICE DRIVER problems. Until now it was disabled. But when I uninstalled AVAST it just started even more problems. When I am loading a game and browsing the internet sometimes I get THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER problems. It is very annoying, because I got a lot of mods for that game, so I watch videos until it loads. When I looked through the BSOD files in BlueScreenView, all the BSODs have the same file error: atikmdag.sys and dxgkrnl.sys Please help.

    Also why does VMWare Workstation pro disable my internet? I currently don't have it installed, but when I install I lose my internet connection?

    Please remove ASUS software while troubleshooting.

    Please uninstall everything of AMD using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from ASUS. Be sure to install as less as possible software using custom/advanced options, you can use this tutorial for the installation part AMD Graphics Drivers - Install Without Catalyst Install Manager - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Daemon tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause for BSOD's.
    Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover.

    1. Uninstall Daemon Tools
    2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
      • Double click the executable to open it
      • Click on the button shown below

    If the button is grayed out, like in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can close the window

    Do you have any extension enabled that blocks ads or something? They may block the image.

    I have AdBlock Plus. But I tried by disabling on this site, but nothing worked. Also, I'm really annoyed of this Driver stuff. I tried installing it more than 2 times, including failed attempts. Oh and also the computer keeps crashing really soon when I play Unturned. I have no time even to get out of main menu to singleplayer,

    Or, there are two more options:
    Go to a restore point before or after Windows 10 update or Reinstalling Windows 8.1 with a secret partition. Does ASUS X550ZE have a secret restore partition

    Usually all laptops come with a 'hidden' recovery partition that could be used.
