    The logs look good.

    The scripts and posting instructions can be modified.

    Which part was not easy?
    What could be done so that you would have done it on the first attempt?

    I didn't think any part was difficult. Posting the .bat files instead of the reports was just an error on my part.
    There are some suggestions made that I haven't had time to try yet.

    I take it that as the logs look good there is no pointer to what the problem is?
    One thing I found was that running CHKDSK /R on my system failed at around 27% three times. Does thatimply the system SSD is faulty?

    This is a good indicator that the SSD is failing. If you want a second opinion. You can download Disk Genius in my signature. Select your SSD and go to the Toolbar to Disk/View or Repair Bad Sectors/Start Verify. This will take a long time. If all of the boxes are Blue, the drive is Healthy. If any of the boxes are Amber, or RED the drive is failing and needs to be replaced.

    The drive file system can be cleaned and or reinstalled/replaced if it's logical errors.
    If it's a hardware problem then replace the drive.
    The test results should display the needed information.

    Thanks for all your help. Will try this tomorrow. Bed time this side of the pond.

    Some of the tests can be run overnight.

    I think the problem must be the SSD system disk. I tried the Disk Genius and it found one bad sector at about 15% in but at around 31% in, it stopped running and a minute or so later died with a BSOD. The BSOD itself seemed to be locked as it didn't do the usual send of information and just locked at 0%. Had to do a cold re-boot.
    On the plus side, but I am not betting on it continuing, once Windows is up and running it doesn't seem to be crashing to BSOD every 10-15 minutes.

    Edit - Since I posted the above about 5 hours ago, the computer has been behaving with no BSODs. The screen saver however is no longer displaying images though - it just makes both monitors go blank. That may or may not be significant.
    However it does leave with the decision as to whether or not I need a new SSD.

    For now I will say thanks for the help and mark problem as solved (sort off!).

    If you booted into Windows and do not have any BSOD's then try running Disk Genius again. If any boxes are light yellow, it's Caution, the drive is beginning to fail but has life left in it. If any of the boxes are Dark Amber or Red the drive is on the way out, backup files you want to keep to another drive before this drive fails to boot, and replace it.

    Ran OK from start to cylinder 19156 when it locked up for 30 seconds or so and then crashed to BSOD. Re-started it at cylinder 19157 and it then ran to end without problems. Overall apart from less than 10 yellows and 2 reds, all were either green or blue.

    To replace or not replace, that is the question! Computer seems to be running OK now so something has changed during the various tests.
    Edit - corrected numerical typo.
