Definitely confirmed that Malwarebytes is the culprit, they have put out a beta fix that appears to be working. I have not had a crash for a week. Initially I uninstalled MWB and this did the trick, so when they advised of the fix, I re-installed with the fix applied and no problems as yet. It took them 2 months to find the fix.

Well, that is EXCELLENT news. I'm also glad it's not a hardware related issue. Well done Peter!

Thanks Dave, yeah I am a bit stubborn, don't like things beating me, so I am like a dog with a bone. Still cost me for my tech mate to do a rebuild which in hindsight was not necessary as I can do that myself, but I thought it may have been something a bit more sinister initially, which would have been a bit above my pay grade to deal with. So if anybody here is getting BSOD and they have MWB installed, it is almost certainly the cause.
Thanks for all your help and suggestions.

Same here. I even have a few holes in the backyard that I've dug in my time

Good to see the end of this saga, Peter.

When I was building these boxes, I used to run this software overnight:

It stress tests all of the system components.

Something for the next drama!
