    If we actually get a new build today, pre-Thanksgiving activities preclude me from installing it until Friday. Hope all of my fellow Americans enjoy a happy Thanksgiving.
    In the UK, PC has taken over so much, we would probably ban Thanksgiving on grounds it is offensive to other religions. Hell in Aberdeen, the council no longer permits use of word Christmas, and refers to it as "The Winter Festival". I find that offensive as the true Winter Festival was hijacked by religious people anyway :-D.

    Seriously, enjoy your day.

    A Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well, magilla.

    This is working again thanks to our Brink if anyone is interested: Backup and Restore Start Layout in Windows 10 Backup Restore Tutorials

    It works in FCU. I have to clean install my 17040 in a bit to test there.

    As a Heliodromus of Lord Mithras and Primus Pilus of the First Cohort of LegioXII, the christian hijacking of our Winter Festival celebrating Natalis Invicti offends me.

    Anybody realize there's a secret Library called 'Slideshow' in: ?C:\Users\{your name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\BackgroundSlideshow
    Attachment 165005
    yeah, been using it for years. I get bored with things very easily, so I have my desktop background change every minute. I have a huge collection of abstract high res jpegs, and I point the slideshow to this folder. I rarely see the same background twice in a week or two.

    Looks like the memory manager was initially mapping a file into memory (NT calls this a section object), it does this by allocating memory from pools of kernel memory. After that, it attempted to deallocate a block of pool memory with some specific tag (ExFreePoolWithTag). The evidence points towards a double free, in other words the memory manager is trying to free something that is no longer there, which leads to undefined behavior and often a crash.We see that the pool header and the first parts of the pool header contents are zeroed out. Combine this with the fact that the function that called ExBugCheck (which is the function that creates the blue screen among other things) was an attempt to free a pool allocation, so I think it was likely an attempt to free something that was already freed.For reference, a pool header is the metadata Windows kernel adds to requests when allocating/deallocating memory from a pool. You can view this data structure in windbg from a live kernel session:
    Code:
    dt nt!_pool_header   +0x000 PreviousSize     : Pos 0, 8 Bits   +0x000 PoolIndex        : Pos 8, 8 Bits   +0x002 BlockSize        : Pos 0, 8 Bits   +0x002 PoolType         : Pos 8, 8 Bits   +0x000 Ulong1           : Uint4B   +0x004 PoolTag          : Uint4B   +0x008 ProcessBilled    : Ptr64 _EPROCESS   +0x008 AllocatorBackTraceIndex : Uint2B   +0x00a PoolTagHash      : Uint2B
    You see, this is what I have never understood about computer os's. If this indeed is the case, knowing all we know about AI, why does the computer crash when it tries to free something that is already freed???? Why don't they write code that is smart enough to recognize that it was already freed, and make a note of it, so this isn't a problem in the future, INSTEAD OF CRASHING???? Why do we get codes that we need to look up when there is a problem in our OS? Given the advances with text to speech as well as AI, why doesn't the computer just tell us in plain language what was wrong and how to fix it, or better yet, go ahead and fix it??? Computer OS's should be self correcting, and have the ability to diagnose their own code, or any other problems within it. This is the 21st century, and you have to wonder why it isn't already happening?

    FWIW.... I hate Starbucks coffee, and I'm hardly what you would call PC!
