I have Windows Vista Home Premium Edition (x64) Service Pack 2.
Twice in the past six days I've had a System_Service_Exception occur. Both have been caused (according to BlueScreenView) by win32k.sys
Description of the Crash:
The information I received from bluescreenview about the latest crash:
-I have already tested my memory, and it checks out.
-I have run a quickscan of MalwareBytes
-After the first crash I did a system cleanup to clear up space (currently 402 GB of free space of 454)
-I have not installed any new hardware in the past year.
-I have not installed any new software in the past year
-My computer is 5 years old.
-I had system_service_exception crashes back in March and in November of last year.
I figure having a crash once every 4 months or so is somewhat acceptable, and maybe even expected. But twice in six days has given me reason for concern. Should I be concerned? And are there any other steps I should take to try and prevent future crashes?
