So Yesterday I updated to the AU....noticed issues, like cortana not really working correctly, but I dont use it that much, just the search part.... also noticed my wifi speed seemed a bit slower, but read something about that, a little bit ago, so maybe that will get fixed in time....because I have bigger issues then that....


Today, heck broke loose... got 3 blue screens

Kernel Security Check Failure

Page Fault in Not Fault area

DPC Watchdog Violation


I was pretty much just using firefox to do some job searching... and the first showed up...security check failure... I noticed it had something to do with a Solid State Drive, (when I started to do some digging on my tablet about it)  I dont have one of those.... so I started to run a System File Checker... got the second page fault.... so then. I tried locating a system restore and got the watchdog violation screen.... So I ended  up booting into safe mode... ran adwcleaner, malwarebytes, both came back with no finds.... I really have no idea what could cause this... I noticed from different articles online it could be a various things, from drivers or just programs not compatible... but I'm wondering if there is something else that is more underlying that could be the root of these issues... or that the AU just plain old, didn't work for my machine... I have no clue... but I have a feeling eventually I will have to get this update in the future, how long am I really able to go without updating it.  


So anyways, If anyone can offer some advice.. I would appreciate it.. I hope I posted this in the right spot...
