Norton Live Update Causes a BSOD on windows 10 Pro
Hi. This is a shoutout to anyone using Norton Security on a windows 10 pro machine. I have a brand new desktop computer. The first thing I did, about 2 weeks ago when i got it from the shop, was installing Norton. Pretty much straight away I got BSOD's, ussually 15 minutes after booting up.
It took me a while to figure out the cause: it turns out to be the live update of Norton. Once it has scanned and downloaded the new virus patch, it goes into installing it and causes a WHEA_UNCONTROLABLE_ERROR bsod.
A few days ago, it actually installed the patch successfully. So I was happy, thinking now the faulty patch was finally removed.
This morning deliberatly ran the liveupdater again, and upon installing the updates, windows again crashes on cue. (Always giving the same WHEA error). My window OS is completely up to date. I've switched off the live updates for now.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
