Unknown Crashes

Today, 06:37 AM

Posted by DarkSerge in All Things Windows
Something is disturbing my system and I don't know what.

About a week ago, my system randomly and unexpectedly rebooted. I was sitting here and suddenly without errors or odd behaviour, the system just rebooted. Not a normal reboot with a shutdown screen - just BLINK and I'm looking at the boot screen.

Several days later, the system completely locked up when I attempted to open a browser. Complete freeze - even the mouse cursor wasn't moving.

Friends and coworkers suggested overheating issues. So all day today I've been monitoring the task manager and the system temperatures. Nothing unusual. Temperatures stayed around 45 C - 50 C when sitting idle, going to around 55 - 65 during activity.

I was away for an hour without checking and the system had rebooted.

System logs have no errors before the reboot/crashes. There is only the error messages after the reboot telling me the system shut down improperly.

The only changes before the reboot was there were 2 Windows Updates the day before my issues started:

https://support.micr...ovember-14-2017

Does anybody know of any issues with one of thoses?

I haven't rolled back my system yet. I also have a bootable USB stick with "Memtest86+" that I will use to run a hardware scan soon.

Slax has released a new version several years after the last one. It's based on Debian! Sorry Eric.

White House makes public rules for disclosing vulnerabilities

15 Nov 2017

Posted by crp in Security & Networking
interesting. guidelines have been around for a few years but they were kept secret.
Know anyone can take a look and see how much they agree and disagree with the rules.
Note that these are rules but not regulations or laws.
