For the last few weeks, I've been getting a MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD on my Windows 10 machine. I'm 90% sure it has something to with Windows trying to update (I can trigger it on command when I check for updates, and I'm pretty sure that when it randomly happens its because my computer is automatically checking) but I don't know how to fix it. I've used BlueScreen Viewer and it always lists ntoskrnl.exe+173ce2 as the culprit, but that's been supremely unhelpful in tracking down what the actual issue is.

Here's a link to a zip that houses a number of my most recent crashes dumps: link.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I'm pretty much at a total loss at this point.

  • you should use windbg to determine the cause of these crashes. – Ramhound Aug 12 '16 at 22:45

You have a large Memory/CODE Corruption.

The Windbg extension function chkimg detects 7 errors in the Kernel file in the dump compared to the original kernel exe.

The file can be faulty on your disk or it will be corrupted in RAM. So run a memory test tool (from Windows) or memtest86+. If this shows errors remove the faulty RAM.

If the memtests show no errors, run chkdsk /f to test your HDD for NTFS issues. If this is fine run DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth to detect corrupted Windows files and repair them.

If everything is fine, remove the driver aswSnx.sys/Avast AV suite, maybe it doesn't support those preview of Windows 10.

  • Thank you so much for this! I'd run a memory test a few times as well as chkdsk /fbut neither had fixed the problem. It ended up being my Avast antivirus that was causing all the issues. Honestly, I'd hit a wall and was close to reformatting my install, so you made my morning. – ImpurestClub Aug 14 '16 at 6:02
