|Yikes! After reading the references to the solution you cite, maybe I can live with the BSOD! Looks like I'll have to set a day aside in order to implement this fix. And then I'm concerned about the use of your phrases like "possible fix" and "may occur" [because of mismatched files]. |
If I understand your response correctly, I can spend the better part of a day performing an in-place Windows upgrade and this MIGHT solve the problem? And if the basis for this procedure is "mismatched files", since Microsoft files performs all of my system updates, how can the files become mismatched?
I sincerely appreciate your responses to this problem as I had no place to turn for its solution. Now I have at least a possible solution, but I wonder if the cure is worse than the disease. I do have some reservations about proceeding with a procedure that will take much of a day when there is only a "chance" of success. In the simplest of terms, I can reboot from BSODs a lot of times in the duration it would take me to eliminate the BSOD from this problem. If I took my PC into a shop and had them do it, I may be money ahead buying a new PC.
Thank you for this solution. I now have to mull over how to proceed.
