    Well this is unusual. Second sentence, last paragraph, you re-installed update. Have you ever done a in place repair / upgrade?

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    Even though tutorial says your files are untouched I always recommend a backup. Always good to have and a Plan B is always handy.

    Can't understand how there is no activity for at least 1/2 hour before freeze.

    Not saying to do this but have you check if there is a newer BIOS for your device. If there is nothing in log is it some how tied to how windows interacts with the basic machine. Seems strange that it would start after an update.

    I wonder if Driver Verifier would provide any answers.

    Enable and Disable Driver Verifier in Windows 10

    I do have the latest bios on the MB and video card

    I do ALWAYS back up before any major changes. I also do backups when I hear that there will be major system upgrades. UNFORTUNELY, before I realized this problem I had over written my last post update mirror drive.

    Yes, I have done a roll-back with no issues and reinstalled the upgrade from the MS site using a 8GB flash drive. I will take a look at the instructions you dropped and see if there are any issues. All other functionality seems the same, but maybe I did miss something that might have stopped this freeze.

    I will take a look at driver verifier, but I currently use DriverHQ for some years which seems to work better with home brew systems.

    Thanks for your help and thoughts, Ken.

    Driver Verifier is most a tester rather than an updater. Myself I do not install the latest and greatest drivers. I'm of the mind set if it ain't broke don't fix it. If I'm experiencing issues then I will update.

    Keep the forum posted.

    Sorry, to be so long. I ran driver verifier with a clean boot and a normal boot. No Dump.mem after freezing in either case. IT WAS SLOW! AND 4:01 for normal and 1:42 for clean boot. Weirder and weirder. I said stress all drivers in both cases.

    This is not very likely, however I do have experience with a similar issue years ago. Turns out it was the old PS/2 mouse I was using that was causing the issue. Do you have a different keyboard/mouse you can try? I realize its a real long shot, but worth a try. Also, are there any USB devices other than the keyboard and mouse connected when this happens? IF so, try disconnecting them for a bit and see what happens.
