    I would be grateful if my friends here would guide me on resolving ntoskrnl.exe BSOD error in win 11. I have seen it only on win 11 from around late Sep builds. Around 95% of these instances happen mostly on cold startup within 1-2 minutes though random BSODs with same ntoskrnl.exe account for remaining 5%. Same hardware but no issues on windows 11 but quite a lot of BSODs on win 11. Nothing has fixed this, neither the win 11 updates or AMD 3.10 drivers. Motherboard is Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra (updated to latest BIOS of Oct 21 that `fixed' TPM for win 11). Memory is tested OK (Gskill 32GB Trident Z neo 3600 Mhz), GPU is ASUS 1660Ti, CPU is AMD Ryzen 7 3700x, power is clean, new, 750W 80 Gold. No overclocking except setting RAM to XMP in Bios. I must stress that this is not a win 10 but a win 11 problem for my PC hardware. After consulting here and elsewhere, I thought I will try these even though it may cause performance or otheGskill 32GB Trident Z neor sacrifices. The sole objective is to avoid BSODs first and then care about other things. So I am trying as below but have no technical skills to know if these matter or help in resoution
    1. Not installing AMD chipset driver (3.10)
    2. Using these registry entries (runtime broker)
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\TimeBroker]
    "Start"=dword:00000003
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\SysMain]
    "DisplayName"="Superfetch"
    "Start"=dword:00000003
    3. Setting page File at Shutdown to 1
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\ClearPageFileAtShutdown=1
    4. Changing NDU value from 2 to 4
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker] "Start"=dword:00000004
    5. Disable Sysmain in services.

    Would be grateful if I can be helped here as to the efficacy or otherwise of above. Any other solution would be welcome.

    most of BCOD problems cause by
    bad driver Or bad software
    Also cause by hardware failure
    check what you install lately

    Balanced. But I don't think power plan is causing it.

    acyuta, After installing new AMD chipset drivers with AMD power plan i had thee BSOD per 2 hours. Changed PP from AMD to Balanced and no BSOD at all. That's why i asked you what power plan you had.

    Try to disable RAM to XMP in bios. I had BSOD with this settings too.

    Thanks a lot. Will try but clearly disabling XMP and running 3600 MHz at 2133 Mhz is not anything but a temp fix. Then it will be remove NVME, remove NVIDIA, etc!!! It is a win 11 issue for my PC as it is rare in win 10.

    Any fixes to the borders in Windows 11?
    Because no matter what I choose in the personalisation options there remains a white border around Windows

    Do you have 7-Zip or other tool associated with CAB? If yes then it won't work until you remove the association.

    Delete WinRar and Zip and reinstall WinRar and 7zip with the settings.
    otherwise they block it in the context menu.

    Clear Needless .tmp Folders Created At Boot
    By @pf100

    Apparently this bug has existed since Windows 10.

    Clear the repeated needless creation of numerous .tmp folders at boot time:
    Code:
    "%systemroot%\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local"
    See @pf100 post.
    Code:
    @echo off
    takeown /F "%systemroot%\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local" > nul
    cd %systemroot%\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local
    for /d /r %%i in (*.tmp) do rmdir /s /q "%%i"

    Apologies mate, didn't see that one. It would be good if the coder/scripter folks would tag me as and when you make new useful tools for tweaking/modding, I've noticed and added a few real good ones when reading here and there, and it's clear that ppl find some of these great tools real useful.

    Sorted now, added to main post index as: Add DISM Info To Context Menu - .iso/.esd/.wim/.vhd/.cab/.msu [Added 15-Nov-2021]

    Cheers.

    Hi folks,

    I think some versions of W11 don't save window location on reboot/application exit. There's a simple regtweak that works:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "RestorePreviousStateRecalcBehavior"=dword:00000000
    

    Then either restart explorer.exe or reboot. I don't know how persistent it is via updates, etc but I'm sure it should be fine for most installations.

    Thanks :)

    Does anyone know how to remove the log on pin permanently? I can't seem to find the thread referring that here. Thanks!
