Yes, HTCW is a bot, but the programmer who created it is not Maunder.
It's created and run by a former scriptwriter for the Wachovski brothers, Laurence, and Andrew sisters, Lana, and Lilly, who was fired while working on the pilot for Sense8, and has since been sighted in Iran, wearing a Revolutionary Guard uniform.
The programmer running this bot, is, obviously, quite gifted, technically.

I wiped the machine completely and reinstalled Win10. Now, it is no longer the graphics card faulting but something else. Previously, ever single error pointed to a graphics card problem. That is no longer true from the Memory.dmp to the app crashes I've seen. Also, there are far fewer crashes now.
Whatever it is, FireFox is the most consistent on crashing from the problem. That's exciting, isn't it?
Check out the results. I cannot tell if it did do something and should expect it to be fixed or not. https://i.stack.imgur.com/k55Nz.png[^]
I guess I should just be blindly optimistic now.
I've definitely gone thru the Stages of Grief with my new computer. Denial - No, this isn't happening. It's a brand new computer with a activated win10 installation! Anger - This cannot be happening!! It's a brand new computer with activated win10 installation!!!!! Bargaining - Don't let this happen. Let the computer work.... Guilt - This is happening because I bought the wrong hardware, right? Sorrow - Computers don't really work. It's all just a trick to make you think technology works. It doesn't matter anyways. I'll just take up knitting. Acceptance - It's fine. I understand that I may or may not be able to use my computer. All computing is unreliable and untrustworthy. I'm going outside.
A few moments after I posted, bot a BSOD and when I ran WinDgb I saw this.
These are totally different errors from what I saw before the windows refresh.
A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer. This overrun could potentially
allow a malicious user to gain control of this machine.
A driver overran a stack-based buffer (or local variable) in a way that would
have overwritten the function's return address and jumped back to an arbitrary
address when the function returned. This is the classic "buffer overrun"
hacking attack and the system has been brought down to prevent a malicious user
from gaining complete control of it.
Do a kb to get a stack backtrace -- the last routine on the stack before the
buffer overrun handlers and bugcheck call is the one that overran its local
