I've just found that if I close MP (so that it's minimised to the tray) and start Internet Explorer, I get a BSOD relating to ati. If I close MP first, no BSOD.

It's probably the driver (Cat 11.2) as they've been having trouble with BSOD lately (11.1 was even worse), but I can't be sure as I used to use 10.12 with MP 1.1.2, which was fine, but I don't know if I tested 10.12 with MP 1.2A.

I doubt the logs will be much use but I might as well attach them.

    Logs are not going to help with BSOD but MP is also 99% sure not the issue.
    The things that can crash windows to BSOD are drivers and hardware.

    Yep, everythings working normally again with 10.12, so please mark this No Bug.

    EDIT: within minutes of posting this, I got another BSOD with ati2dvag, so clearly I haven't found the problem yet! I only downgraded the actual driver (of which ati2dvag is a part), but I'll have to try downgrading the SB driver and CCC as well. I would have thought the SB driver more likely to be the problem than CCC though, but it could be something else entirely of course.

    EDIT 2: It's been OK for a couple of days, but I just got another ati BSOD when searching a network folder, so I'm going back to 10.10 now. I wonder if these crashes are because of the VNC Mirror driver I've got installed. I'm going to uninstall it, but I recall last time I tried, XP wouldn't boot anymore, so I'm making a partition image first!
