The BETA installer sent out on 7-5-2016:
'SharkIndicators-Installer-1.232.6030-BETA-BH-and-BlackBird-20160705.4-Trace' somehow created a 'blue screen' windows crash before it could complete the installation.
I had uninstalled the previous BETA version from 'Control Panel' prior to the new install:
When I then tried to reinstall the BETA version prior to the crash (directly above), it also then crashed the system with a 'blue screen'. I wasn't able to capture any error messages.
One other thing I noticed with the prior working version was when the 'dev' extensions were included, it seemed very erratic... after I removed the BETA and reinstalled with out the 'dev' extensions, the problems seemed to be resolved. I wasn't able to get any specifics about this.
I finally did a sfc/SCANNOW and the system seems to be intact. A Norton System Registry check also didn't have any significant problems.
