1050ti and 338.43 drivers

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though NVidia has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

I had shut down F@H while troubleshooting and trying to change drivers, so there is no F@H log for that time period.

No Microsoft issue that I know of, since I do not allow auto-updates. Is there a KB reference for removal of OpenCL? I do download all drivers directly from nVidia.

I also had the computer set for auto-restart after crash. I've reset that option; maybe I'll see the BSOD next time. OTOH, it's run for 36 hours since the reload...

Go to the FAH data directory and look in the subdirectory "logs" The previous 16 logs are retained by FAH, so you've probably got the log I was looking for.
According to the previous log you posted, you are using C:\Apps\FAH\Data instead of the default data directory.

And Windows event viewer will show the fatal error if it was a BSOD.

Unfortunately, all those previous logs were overwritten when I reloaded the C: drive from backup.

Current F@H log, start through current WU, is

The only critical error of any interest regarding drivers is several instances of
"The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: Uim_VIM"

In the Application log, for F@H there are several scattered instances (5/27, 7/19, 7/30) of
"Failed to connect to No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it."

FWIW, I reloaded F@H 1 more time yesterday. It could not get a connection to re-download Core 21, so I copied it from my other machine. I also slightly modified the fan profile on the GPU, and max GPU temp since has been 66C at 50% fan RPM. It's been running OK since...

I know nothing about Paragon software, but it's not releated to FAH.

You probably have a setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Uim_Vim
and System32\Drivers\Uim_Vim.sys is apparently is a Plugin for a game called Paragon

Windows should ALWAYS allow connections to If your security software is blocking that connection, FAH isn't going to work correctly. is the loopback connection to your own machine and port 36330 is the default port used by FAHControl to talk to FAHClient.

The only Paragon software I have is my backup software. I did a bit of looking and found it is a "Universal Image Mounter". Dunno what it does, but Paragon works OK...

I don't know what caused the issue. F@H works most of the time, so there must have been a transient error somewhere. Running Malwarebytes and Norton Security, and have not made any manual entries re

Are the errors associated with a reboot?

I have seen a few occasions where there was a lot of activity during the startup processing. Sometimes FAH can get started before TCP/IP is fully initialized and is's possible that causes a message to be issued due to temporary problem cause by a race condition.

Possibly. They were scattered in the past, so I didn't dig deeply...
