Hello. Since the Fall Creators Update came out, the machine has had issues at startup, among which are clusters of 4 DCOM errors (which I cannot take ownership of) and periodically 1 or more WHEA Logger corrected hardware warnings. An example is below

You can tell startup is affected (delayed) but proceeds as usual. No bluescreens so no dumpfiles. I want to know why these are occurring and if there is anything more I can do. The device ID A118 appears to correspond to PCI Express Root Port #9 and involves the NVMe--if not, please correct me.
What I've done so far: reseat the NVMe, clean installation of Windows 10 v. 1709 (3x), installation of latest Intel chipset and Serio I/O (3x). Latest BIOS (no Spectre/Meltdown one yet). The # of these WHEA Logger warnings can fluctuate from 1 to over 20 but don't occur at every startup. Fast startup and BIOS Quick Boot are both disabled. I've found that booting machine before Internet connection is fully established results in zero DCOM errors and zero WHEA.
Chkdsk /r showed no errors or bad blocks. The NVMe is about 3 months old. RAM is 2x8 GB Ballistix Sport DDR4 @2400MHz. Speccy does not detect two temperatures so here is a snip of the missing motherboard and drive information:
There are two temps for the NVMe in HWInfo snip.
The issue isn't really dire but any information is gratefully received. Thanks!
