I've tried to add the Mini-dump but its not letting me change the permissions in that folder

I've narrowed it down to the vwififlt.sys file.
After some researched, I've updated my driver for Wi-Fi.
I'll give an update later if its solved the problem

This has been ongoing for months now and it's starting to leave me with little options but to try a reformat, which I'd really like to avoid. They sometimes happen when the computer is being operating, but...
