Windows Overlay Filter (wof.sys), file in Windows 8.1, is associated with BSOD in Windows 10 bld 9879 RRS feed

  • Question

  • BSOD in Win 10 build 9879 is with bug check 0x1e. Wof.sys is a file that is in Win 8.1. HP g7-1310us (refurbished) laptop has been having BSOD's even when it had Win 7 installed. Checked RAM, hardware, and SATA disk but there is no specific lead to why BSOD's happen routinely. Interestingly, there were no problems while this laptop was running Ubuntu 14. Any details on what Windows Overlay Filter driver named wof.sys does? Also, could this error be caused by faulty CPU? It has an Intel i3-2350M CPU @2.3Ghz, x64 based processor.
