Installing 2004 caused a few problems on my PC, for example, some video files wouldn’t open. Couldn’t purchase the latest Cyberlink PhotoDirector upgrade, from their Website. (Checkout unavailable) and I got a message about when I tried to use it. Something about insufficient files.

I used Macrium Reflect to restore my most recent snapshot backup (Created just before I downloaded and installed 2004) and normality was resumed. I can live without this Windows 10 update.

With regards to my broadband problem. This occurred a few years ago when the signal would drop off for a while. This could be anything from a few seconds to several minutes. Not much fun when you're watching a major sporting event on-line.

I bought the wireless dongle hoping that if or when  the broadband problem kicked in, the Wi-Fi would take over. This is just what happened on a few occasions.

The good news is that the broadband anomaly seems to be a thing of the past. is working perfectly and in my opinion, it's a great asset for all computer users.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the reply. I did as you instructed then reinstalled I then booted into Safe Mode, I selected the repair option, but left the Repair Network (and the UAC as I keep that switched off) unchecked.

I got the BSOD again concerning the rtwlanu.sys, but this time the message continued, collected some error info, then rebooted my PC back into Safe Mode.

I restarted the machine and I was soon back into Windows 10.

Later, I realised that there was something I was taking for granted.

I get my Internet via a broadband connection, but because of a problem I had with it a couple of years ago, I bought a wireless dongle, as a sort of backup. Could this be having an effect on the situation?

The dongle has been sitting in one of the USB ports on the computer. Out of sight, out of mind, so to speak.

As an experiment, I removed the dongle, then booted into Safe Mode and

I opted for the System Tweaks then rebooted the machine. No BSOD this time.

The following day, still without the wireless dongle, I Safe Booted into

I opted this time for a Disk Cleanup (got nearly a Gig from Memory Dump), then rebooted into Windows  without a BSOD appearing.

I'll monitor this situation for a week or so, but at the moment I'm optimistic about the outcome.

Meanwhile, the wireless dongle will be kept in a safe place, 'just in case.'

Thank you for your help with my problem.

My computer is a desktop, which was created by Quiet PC and as the name might suggest, it does not contain any fans. My operating system is Windows 10, 64-bit.

I recently installed a registered version of, but unfortunately, I soon ran into some problems.

I booted into Safe Mode as suggested and had a look at the various things the programme had to offer.
I then selected a few of the repairs and ran the programme. When this had finished, I chose to reboot.

I got a BSOD with the message "Your PC ran into a problem & needs to restart" "What failed? rtwlanu.sys."

I switched off the power to the PC then rebooted. I made a search for a solution to the problem, but as I was unsuccessful, I restored a snapshot backup, using Macrium Reflect.

A few days later, I reinstalled and once again I entered the programme via Safe Boot.
The only thing I did was to to enable the f8 Boot function.

I then chose the reboot option. I got another BSOD message. This one stated "Attempted execute of noexecute memory" "What failed? srv2.sys."

To cut a long story short, I restored my latest Macrium backup and currently, is not installed on my PC.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
