Built a new computer with :
GIGABYTE B450M DS3H AM4 Motherboard
AMD AMD RYZEN 5 2600X WRAITHS CPU (6Core with hyperthreading, 12 cores)
IPSG 16GB 2X8GB DDR4 3200 KIT RAM
SAMSUNG E 500GB 970EVO NVME M.2 SSD
Nvidia GEForce GTX 1660
Sorry, not yelling -- it's copied from my order. Smile | :)

This computer is soooooo fast! Except...
Installed the latest Win10 1903 release.

I install the Nvidia drivers and it runs perfectly. Blazing fast running Android Studio, Android Emulator while running Visual Studio at the same time.

Except...
Every time I reboot (or shutdown and turn on computer next day) Win10 re-installs the graphics drivers it thinks is best and the computer crashes within moments of starting FireFox or Android Studio or whatever. So I install the appropriate graphics drivers again. Everything is fine until windows installs the wrong driver again.

Check this laughable BSOD out:

Yes, if you call a support person please provide them with the stop code: KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE and make sure you yell it loud enough.

Here's another BSOD I've seen : https://i.stack.imgur.com/Pf4pl.jpg[^]

Those of you who like Win10 will experience sympathy, others will let the schadenfreude rain down.
Laugh | :laugh:

FireFox, Android Studio
The odd thing is that the generally the first time I boot up each day the machine will crash.
Then I reboot and after that everything is fine.
How could this be true? The computer cannot tell the difference from one boot-up to another. I don't get it. Unsure | :~ Confused | :confused:

FireFox seems to always be the culprit, but Android Emulator and/or Android Studio can generally get the crash too.

Crash Dump
I've looked over the Crash Dump with WinDb and I see that FireFox is the culprit but not much else.

EDIT
I downloaded Opera Web Browser and I closed FireFox so I can test for a while.
I have Android Studio, Android emulator, streaming the Apple Event livestream in Opera window and posting here all at the same time as a test.

I immediately got an error in NVidiaShare.exe which crashed becuase it "couldn't read a file from the m.2 drive." That makes me wonder if I have some kind of disk errors.

Oy! New super fast computer and I'm moving slower than ever.

EDIT 2
Well, it's not just FF, because Opera crashed. Loads of fun here. Hmmm | :|

EDIT 3
Apps kept crashing so I did another test. I ran the Nvidia driver installation again (in case Win10 invisibly updated them) and it seems like this is fixing it. So I really think it is the Graphics Drivers and Win10 overwriting them every time.
if (Win10_update overwrites graphic drivers)
{
   Win10_update = TERRIBLE!!!
}


EDIT 4
Running for hours now after running NVidia driver installation and no apps have crashed and win10 is stable. Why, Win10!?! Why do you do this to us!?! Mad | :mad:
Well, as long as I don't reboot... Hmmm | :|
