    WppRecorder.sys problem when updating Windows 10 from 1909 to 20H2


    Situation: (see my profile First System for specs). I always leave my automatic updates on so I just assumed that it would keep up. Last week and got an update icon in the notification area informing that my version of Win10 was reaching the end of support, and on checking winver, I found I was still running 1909 - it hadn't even updated to 2004. I checked in Settings>WindowsUpdate and it said I was up to date, but whereas the other computers I have all offered to update to 20H2, this one did not. After some research online, the consensus was that I could manually update straight from 1909 to 20H2 by downloading Windows10Upgrade9252.exe from the Microsoft website and running it, so I did, and that is where the problems began.
    Problems: Windows10Upgrade9252.exe downloads the update OK but then it runs into pronlems
    1. On restart we get the usual grey "Working on Updates" screen and the update takes about 10 minutes to get to 30%
    2. Computer restarts again and the "Working on updates" screen come up and quickly get to 48%
    3. Screen goes blank for a few seconds then the following blue screen comes up

    : (
    Your device ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting
    some error info, then we'll restart for you
    % (rolls up to 100%)
    Stop code: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
    What failed: WppRecorder.sys

    What I have done: On recommendations from my google searches so far, I have tried

    1. Removing all attached devices such as printers, card readers and USB HDDs
    2. Running scf /scannow
    3. Running DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    4. Running dism /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    The next thing I find I'm being advised to do is to download a new copy of WppRecorder.sys and copy it over top of the existing version in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\ - I consider this to be a very risky step, and not one I am willing to take until I have exhausted all other options - it would be the last thing I try before simply carrying out a fresh install.
    Does anyone here have suggestions a to what else I might try?

    Thanks but that will be my very last option.

    This a work computer with a massive amount of specialist, licenced software - a fresh install followed by installing all that software will be a colossal task.

    I have downloaded B150M-A-M2-ASUS-3806.CAP, but I don't know how to use this file. When I double-click it, it opens the Windows Photos" App and wants me to download codecs from the Microsoft Store.. this doesn't seem right to me.

    1) Are the Macrium backup images up to date?

    2) Make a new restore point:

    Create System Restore Point in Windows 10


    3) List and uninstall all non-Microsoft antivirus software

    4) List and uninstall all non-Microsoft firewall software

    5) List all Microsoft and non-Microsoft drive encryption software.
    Uninstall all non-Microsoft disk encryption software


    6) Windows 10 Home 32-bit
    B150M-A/M.2|Motherboards|ASUS Global
    See if this link works for BIOS upgrades.




    7) Run HD Tune (free version) (all drives)
    HD Tune website
    Post images into the thread for results on these tabs:
    a) Health
    b) Benchmark
    c) Full error scan


    8) Run Sea Tools for Windows
    long generic test
    Post an image of the test result into the thread

    如何使用 Windows 版 SeaTools | Seagate 支持 *国




    9) Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    chkdsk /r /v
    This may take hours to run so plan to run overnight.
    Run on all drives using the syntax: chkdsk /r /v C: or chkdsk /r /v D: changing the drive letter to the applicable drive.

    C:\Windows\system32>chkdsk /r /v
    The type of the file system is NTFS.
    Cannot lock current drive.

    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
    process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
    checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

    Type: Y
    reboot


    10) Use the information in this link to find the chkdsk report in the event viewer.
    Copy and paste into notepad > save to desktop > post into the thread using a one drive, drop box, or google drive share link:

    11) These steps / tests can be performed overnight:
    a) HD Tune full error scan
    b) Sea Tools for Windows long generic test
    c) Chkdsk /b /v




    12) Read these links on Windows driver verifier:
