    Recent random freezes


    Win 10 20H2 build 19042 1288

    Windows had been working perfectly for a long time, then the last week or so I've started getting random system freezes (4 times this last week). I get a blue circle "working" icon that never finishes. I can move the mouse but can not change or affect the application I'm in with the mouse or keyboard and can not move to a different app or close. Control-alt-del has no effect. I have to crash/restart Windows 10 by holding the power button.

    check under C:\Windows\Minidump if there are any dump files, and share them.

    Also take look at the Reliability monitor and check for the cretical events that happened during the hangs/crashes, it can give you a clue about the application or service that's causing those hangs:

    Happened again this morning with but blue circle and had to restart with power button.
    I checked and Windows is set to save minidump in root of C but there is no dump file there.

    Boot following last crash gave error:

    The exception unknown software exception (Oxe0434352) occurred in the application at location Ox00007FFDCC8D4F99,

    Could not get Win Explorer to start at that point.
    Rebooted again and then Explorer started OK.

    Thanks for your help.

    I followed the suggestions at How to solve unknown software exception 0xe0434352
    sfc /scannow found and fixed errors.


    Wating to see if that fixed it.

    Can you run the log collector and share the logs, so that we can check for more details:

    I don't see a dump file, but I see that the "Image Transfer Utility 2.exe" has crashed several times!
    it's a Canon application (C:\Program Files (x86)\Canon\ImageTransferUtility2\Image Transfer Utility 2.exe)

    Prevent this application from running at Windows startup and see if it helps;

    Also make sure that Windows is up to date;

    I don't see image transfer utility in startup, I see only the Canon:

    Canon Advanced Printing Technology Printer Status Window Launcher

    Which I think is not it?

    - - - Updated - - -

    I checked in C:\Program Files (x86)\Canon\ImageTransferUtility2\ but that directory does not exist

    There is a C:\Program Files (x86)\Canon\CameraWindowLauncher with a CameraLauncher.exe in it but?
