          Hello Murray1978,

          We understand your system is showing BSOD's after some system updates. This can happen for different reasons, as first step, we recommend to perform a clean installation of the wireless driver:

           1. As first option, we advise to use the driver obtained from the Computer Manufacturer Support, if the issue persists you can try the generic version of Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows® 10 [19.70.0]
           2. Go to Control Panel, Programs and Features and Uninstall "Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software", if it is installed. When prompted, choose the option to "Discard settings".
           3. In Control Panel, Device Manager, Network Adapters, right click on the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 and Uninstall it. Make sure you mark the option to "Delete the driver software for this device". 
           4. Reboot the PC or scan for hardware changes, check device manager and if an older wireless driver is detected and installed, repeat the actions to uninstall and delete it as well. Repeat this process until the OS does not allow deleting the driver, or until the controller shows as Unknown Device. 
           5. Remove temporary files: Press the Windows Key + R to open the run box. Type Cleanmgr.exe. Press OK. Select the main drive, usually C:\. Check Temporary Files and uncheck everything else. Press OK. 
           6. Install the Intel Wireless driver. During the first steps of PROSet/Wireless installation, make sure to customize the installation and install all driver components.

          Additionally, make sure your OS has all applicable Windows* updates.
