Whocrashed finds the reason why your PC crashed

I bought a new HP AIO (all in one PC) and upgraded Windows 10 to the newest anniversary edition (1607).  My PC kept crashing with blue screens of death (BSOD) but it wasn't clear what was causing to crash.

I've used WhoCrashed before (several years ago on Windows 7 to identify a buggy Juno VPN driver) and once again it was quickly able to identify the buggy driver (in my case a buggy driver for Intel Wi-Fi causing the crash):

Crash dump file: 
This was probably caused by the following module: netwtw04.sys (Netwtw04+0x32DC2)
Bugcheck code: 0xD1 (0x8, 0x2, 0x0, 0xFFFFF80194C10E28)
product: Intel® Wireless WiFi Link Adapter
company: Intel Corporation
description: Intel® Wireless WiFi Link Driver

Review of WhoCrashed (Lifehacker)

When it is done analyzing it gives you an explanation of each crash and at the very bottom conclusions on what to do.

I've updated a new driver....hopefully that solves this BSOD.
