Multiple errors, system hangs and crashes in Win10

My computer is 18 months old. About 9 months ago I had multiple incidents where the computer would hang and simply sit. No error messages. No warnings. Nothing. I would manually power down and checking the event viewer, the culprit seemd to be the drivers that supported my Razer headset. Removing those did not help though and evetually, I ran a full system restore and restored the computer to factory settings.
Things ran well untril last week when the crashes began happening again and though I couldn't ID any one issue in the event viewer, I eventually had to restore factory settings again.
Well, this morning, the crashes have started again.
I have run the hardware diagnostic (with zero issues identified).
The errors that appear most often seem to relate to KNDBWM.exe but there are multiple entires like this -

I don't really know what other info to provide but I am hoping that someone might have some idea of what is happening and could offer some suggestion so I don't experience another cascade of failure leading to another reimaging of the HD.

Thanks!

    the events you found can be ignored. They are (sadly) normal, but have no negative effect
    and are not cause by KNDBWM.

    KNDBWM,exe is from "Killer" network drivers: they are known to be buggy
    jut google "killer network bug or problem".
