From Event VIewer:

 

Faulting application name: Explorer.EXE,

version: 6.1.7601.17567,

time stamp: 0x4d672ee4

Faulting module name: mswsock.dll,

version: 6.1.7601.18254,

time stamp: 0x522be0b3

Exception code: 0xc0000005

Fault offset: 0x00000000000012c9

Faulting process id: 0xc1c

Faulting application start time: 0x01cfc1711fa860aa

Report Id: 926dd48b-2d64-11e4-9918-d02788836d6e

 

NOTE: I use KIS 2015 and MBAM Pro for my protection. I have already run full scans (rootkit option enabled) with them. Nothing was found.

 

Any advice? 

 

P.S. I have a custom build computer. It's not the best, but feel free to look at it's specifications in my profile. I love it and that's what matters. It's my first self built computer. I've very proud of it. :)

 

P.P.S. I have Speccy & CCleaner.

If nothing else, there are corrupt files, thus you need to do a diskcheck/repair.

Is there a way to limit diskcheck to drive C:\? I can only imagine it would take hours to check my E:\ Drive. The problem lies in the OS files from what i can see, so I shouldn't have to scan E:\.

Absolutely, in fact, as best as I know, you can only scan one drive/partition at a time.

Do you know how to schedule the diskcheck/repair?

Yeah, it would be nice if it solves everything, but if not, there are solutions to every problem and it's just a matter of time and patience to find and fix it.
