  1. Random actions since W10 update.


    Since the last update the laptop has been acting as if haunted. Various interfaces and windows open randomly including the right click interface, the inspect element window and interfaces in 365. In both Chrome and Firefox windows are closed or opened or attempts are made to leave pages, new tabs are opened.
    When writing text stretches of text or the entire text is suddenly deleted, or the cursor moves to another space and continues to enter the text being typed there.
    Windows are closed without warning, causing loss of work.
    Sticky keys are off as is the touchpad.
    Working on a German Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga.
    This behavior appeared once before and then disappeared on its own. It returned a few weeks ago.

    Help appreciated.

    :)

    Random BSOD while browsing internet


    BitDefender is nothing special. mwac.sys causes BSODs anywhere.
    A tiny documentation can be found here: Solved Random BSODs - Windows 10 Forums
    In that very thread, the suggested action apparently worked.

    The storage and network filters of any third party antivirus can cause BSODs. Neither MBAM nor BitDefender is any special. For a regular antivirus, it may be shifted to an alternative; but MBAM has no alternative. So a clean install of the said program is the most feasible first step.
    As far as the first step is not failing, it is better to not think for the second step. Because the BSODs are not universal, failure at the first step is not universal; and success at the second step is also not universal.
    That is why I posted that my suggestion may work, or may not. Let us see where it goes.
     
  3. random restarts

    Hi,

    If a Windows computer random restarts, the device usually have some damaged system components. For us to provide an accurate solution, we would need you to answer the following questions:

    • Which build, version and edition of Windows is installed on your computer?
    • What changes have you made to the device before this issue occurred?
    • What troubleshooting steps was already performed to your laptop?

    In the meantime, it will be best to make sure that the latest update of Windows is installed on your device. If the same issue happens after installing Windows Update, we suggest running the power troubleshooter. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Open the Control Panel.
    • Using the search bar at the upper-right corner, type troubleshooting.
    • From the search results, click on Troubleshooting and then select System and Security.
    • Click on Power and then follow the prompts to successfully run the tool.

    We are looking forward to your response.

    Random actions since W10 update.

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Random actions since W10  update. :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
