So i started mining 9 months ago. 8 card rig, all of em 1060 6 GB cards. Things ran relatively smooth. I took the steps necessary and advised to block any and all windows updates. Well, at some point Windows overpowered.......windows lol. It went from 1709 to the latest 1803 build. This foooked everything up.
Happened like 2 days ago. Anyway, after 4 hours of messing with -eres 1 or -litag 0,1,2,3 etc etc and trying new and old claymore versions; not to mention hours of googling, i finally just did a restore build. You can rapidly and VERY simply roll back windows builds. Zero issues.
Everything is up n humming at my normal 193.7 Mh/s!!!!
This is just an FYI for anyone who gets an update on accident. I did have my updates completely shut off. I have no clue how it updated but when i saw my miner offline the other night i went downstairs to check on it and saw it in action, doing an update.
