Haven't really found a satisfying solution to this problem.

I have Windows 10 Home x64.
I have Google Drive, and Drive File Stream installed and syncing my drive. Most files are online until I interact with them, and it downloads them locally (pretty standard).

When I double-click on an .exe file, Windows BSOD straight away.


When I right-click the file and choose: Drive File Stream > 'Available offline'
then double-click, it also BSOD.

I have tried completely removing DFS from Windows and reinstalling.
I have used it on two Windows installs now, with the same result.

Tried taking this up with Google, who said that it is not supported to run executables from DFS, and suggested using Backup and Sync instead.

I haven't tried that yet, but I feel like it's going backwards. They said that it is not a bug with Drive File Stream, but with Windows.

If I take this problem to Microsoft, they'll simply blame Google.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

  • We need a mem dump. Anything under: \windows\minidump\ as a start? – HelpingHand May 22 at 7:51
  • @HelpingHand Yes I do. I've solved it and will post an answer. Basically via WinDbg it revealed a sys file related to a program I have installed. Uninstalling that program has stopped the BSOD from occurring. – TheManInOz May 27 at 5:44

Ok so after getting WinDbg running and analysing, I found that there is a program installed that was related to the crash. Uninstalling this program has resolved the issue.

Below is the WinDbg output with information redacted. You can see the areas I have written SuspectProgram.
