    BSOD after Win 10 security update KB4041676 or Win 10 Fall Creators

    Hi everyone, I hope someone can assist me.

    I'm having serious troubles since October 16.
    As far as I know, because this computer in troubles is remote, it has been restarting by serious crashes since Microsoft automatically installed the last security update.
    The first time I thought it was caused by faulty hardware and I ran some test but recently after digging, and learning as well, I found that it was related, by the date it starting having BSOD, to a recent security update.
    Since then my computer has been crashing over and over again twice or even more times a day.

    After reading and following the "posting instructions" I already have the crash reports as requested.

    I apologize for my bad English.
    Thanks for your time.

    The bios on the computer: BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. F1, 2/20/2017
    There were bios updates in April, June, August, and September.
    The update can be performed by downloading the latest update:

    The risk, if something goes wrong, a bricked motherboard. That is, if there isn't a backup bios.

    Hello DinoGuy,

    If you are still getting problems have a look to see if updated drivers are available for the Qualcomm Atheros AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter. The current driver athw10x.sys was picked out in the last crash dump.

    Hi everyone, thanks for the answers.
    I was out of the city, so sorry for the late reply.

    As a first step I think I'm gonna update all drivers and see if it works.
    Since the computer is remote I think I'm gonna update the BIOS when I have physical access to the PC.

    I still have one question, How do I backup the BIOS before flashing it?

    1) Backup the files on the computer to another drive or to the cloud.
    2) Make a backup image with Macrium:
    Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free
    3) Place the backup image on another drive or into the cloud.
    4) Create a brand new restore point.
    5) Work on the computer when there is little likelihood of a power outage.
