Issue: Hello. I have tried to upgrade my PC from Windows 10 to Windows 11 but I encountered a BSOD with an error code INVALID_DATA_ACCESS_TRAP. What could be the issue?

Solved Answer

A blue screen occurs when Windows encounters something known as a “STOP Error.” This critical failure causes Windows to crash and stop working. The only thing Windows can do is restart the PC. This can sometimes lead to data loss as active apps do not have a chance to save the data. There should be no need to say that BSOD errors like INVALID_DATA_ACCESS_TRAP should be taken seriously and fixed as soon as possible.

There are different reasons that may cause this error – missing core files, corrupt device drivers,[1] memory or storage issues, and others. Sometimes, the presence of a third-party application can also cause INVALID_DATA_ACCESS_TRAP BSOD. For example, some third-party antivirus software have been known to cause issues during Windows updates and upgrades.

Besides, privacy-focused browsers like Tor is are not an optimal choice due to diminished connection speeds. The best solution for your ultimate privacy is Private Internet Access – be anonymous and secure online.
