    It's a DirectX driver file and if you don't need or use DirectX you can uninstall it. There are instructions on how to do this in that link.

    So I dug my way thru all 6 pages of this thread and read plenty of 'listen to me' comments. Snake oil or otherwise, if used with commensense and caution using these types of apps is a great way to learn.
    Anyway, as some of you guys appear to know heaps, answer me this please
    And this is a challenging comment. Judgemental at the same time. Moreover, this question does not fit in the discussion of the current thread. You should have made a separate thread for this question. Still we can try to answer to your question provided you provide adequate information.

    Bootlog, Win 10 Home, tells me that dxgkrnl.sys loads, or attempts to at least, 6 times.
    What drives this behaviour as it causes me plenty of grieve during the boot process (near the end at the desktop)
    There has to be a file or registry hive which drives the loading of *.sys files. But where is that???
    Bootlogging is enabled for troubleshooting. That means, if bootlogging is enabled, there is a trouble. What is it? The behavior of the driver is highly influenced by the nature of the issue. We need to know the issue it at first.

    Boot logging creates a file, ntbtlog.txt. Collect it and upload it here. It will tell us what is actually going on.

    Till now we dont have any of the basic information. At that point we can only the basic thing. That is, If you are running the computer in safe mode, none of the DirectX components including dxgkrnl.sys will load at all.
    But if it happens in normal mode, then there is some issue relating to the display environment (which contains a lot of hardware, software and environmental variables; DirectX is almost never the main soure of the issue reported to be caused by it).
    After that, troubleshooting may be started, but definitely in a different thread. Create a new one, give me the link to that one.

    And before you ream my rearend for asking this question in piggy back fashion on this thread, I have posted this question in numerous forums and never seem to get an answer. So maybe you knowledgable fellows can point me in the right direction.

    We are neither interested nor responsible for the activities of the other forums.
    Right direction for you is, create a new thread. Explain the issue properly, attach the Ntbtlog.txt file (will be found in C drive), give me a link.
