I know this error is because EAC detects something running that it doesn’t like, but I have absolutely no idea what could be causing it. I’ve looked up all the common causes for this error and no solutions have worked. I’ve also tried reinstalling EAC, and Darktide. Is there any way to find out what program specifically is causing this? I looked through the logs and didn’t seem to find anything particularly useful.

Try a ‘Selective Startup’:

  1. Press the Windows key
  2. Type ‘msconfig’ and select ‘System Configuration’
  3. On the ‘General’ tab, select ‘Selective Startup’
  4. Deselect ‘Load startup Items’
  5. Reboot your PC

Hey Julia,

Thanks for the timely response! While your solution did not work for me, it did lead me down the right path to figuring out what was causing this. While I don’t know exactly what service is causing it yet, I was able to fix the error by going into

msconfig → services tab → hide all microsoft services (so you dont disable them) → then disable all services.

likely candidates : Virtualbox system service, LGHUB Updater Service

UPDATE: I have no idea which service was causing the crash. When I reenable all the same services (one of which was causing the error…) I now no longer crash.

So it seems my issue was simply fixed by :
disabling non microsoft services → restarting computer → re-enabling those same services again → restart computer for changes to take effect
