Yes I have removed all of the PCT drivers from device manager now but the two I found originally in C:\windows\drivers (PCTBD64.sys and PCTBD64.sys) are still sitting in this folder? Should they be removed? I am awaiting the next crash so I can get new logs. Of course, I am hoping that there won't be another crash but I have a feeling this won't be the case I will keep you posted. I will wait before I do anything else as I am trying to work through this systematically. Again, thanks for all your help. Chris

Yes they have from device manager. It hasn't BSOD that I have spotted yet but I have heard it reboot a few times and then I just get a black screen and have to switch it off and back on again to get it running again. I'm waiting to spot the BSOD to get another report.

I don't dare hope that this problem is fixed - but my laptop hasn't BSOD for 2 days! I wonder now if the reboot problem I had might have been some windows updates because I did do another update just before it kept rebooting randomly. The reboot issue where it doesn't always boot into windows might be a separate issue and I still occasionally get a message about not be able to load a driver - but no BSOD which is brilliant! The hard drive has stopped working overtime as well. I will give it a couple of days and report back again - or will report back should I get the BSOD in the meantime. The 2 PCT files are still there - C:\windows\drivers (PCTBD64.sys and PCTBD64.sys) but not sure how I can/should remove these? Unless I reinstall PCT and try uninstalling again cleanly - but I won't bother if they are not giving me grief? I will keep you posted anyway. Feeling quietly confident but I have had a couple of days before now without a crash but not recently so hoping it might have been PCT causing this. Thinking back, I originally had PCT installed but uninstalled it because it was giving me some issues. I installed AVG instead but then decided to unintall AVG and put PCT back on a while back. It may well have started a while after that so this could have been the issue all along. But I will wait a few more days before celebrating! Chris

Well.... I'm glad I didn't hold my breath! It has just BSOD again. It didn't manage to boot into Windows - got the black screen again but switched off and back on and F8 and have managed to collect the files which I am attaching. Also another file which was something I ran from the MS site a few days ago - not sure if it's useful. SO disappointed.... I do hope these files help identify the issue. Thanks for your continued patience/help

Code:
BugCheck FE, {8, 6, 5, fffffa8006f05160}

Probably caused by : usbhub.sys ( usbhub!UsbhHubProcessChangeWorker+ec )
The USB Hub driver is the main cause of the crashes, since every dump has pointed to this driver, I would suggest a Repair Install and see if that resolves the issue:
Code:
Unscanned Files:
------------------
[c:\windows\c:\windows\system32\drivers]
tfnetmon.sys        The directory name is invalid.
[c:\windows\system32\drivers]
tffsmon.sys         The file is not installed.
tfsysmon.sys        The file is not installed.
These two files are linked to PC Tools, and I understand that the other PC Tools files are reappearing, with this issue I would suggest installing PC Tools again, and then using the official installer (if available) or uninstalling via Control Panel in Safe Mode, and then using a program such as CCleaner to attempt to clean up any left over files:Have you ran System File Checker?
