A few days back, the armory crate app kept crashing and it kept flashing on the screen with the perfomance/ silent mode pop up depending what app I was using. The screen brightness caused by the changing power mode (App vs win) would change the brightness of the screen. So I looked into it.
As it was already broke I uninstalled Armory Crate and the ROG live services and installed them fresh from the My Asus downloads. This did not work. After some attempts. I've tried to uninstall them and the traces using Revo and this keeps leaving me with the crashes.
I have the log below. I have tried a rest (keeping personal files) of windows. I have a backup image of my files should a re-install of windows be in order.
I also have dumps and the logs below. Looks like an access violation exception in the dll of aura service (possibly caused by the user session helper) I'm wondering if this is accessing a updated driver. As I had updates when all this happened.
I've been struggling for some time puzzled and trying to work this out. I noticed the uninstaller for AC leaves traces so maybe there's something my eyes and revo didn't pick up.
I was curious on one attempt and removed aura service .dll just to see what would happen. It moved onto the next dll in the files with another access violation message. I think if I reset and updated I would face this again due to it acessing memory used by a driver?
I did thought I had fixed this once by installing the right visual studio C++ distro but this failed after a few moments 😞
