Thanks for your report.
Unfortunately the Debug File doesn't seem to show the exact reason of the crash. Do you have the "Debug Write Direct" option enabled ? If not, please enable it. Do you maybe launch HWiNFO from a drive that is cached ?
You might also try to disable Drive Scan to see if that maybe helps.
Thanks. I can see now more precisely where the problem occurs, though I'm not yet sure about the cause.
This is in fact a very unique issue never observed before.
Can you please try to upgrade the graphics drivers (and/or system BIOS) to see if that might fix it?
Before using HWINFO64 Portable I followed the instructions in the Help File very precisely - I updated all drivers prior to use.
More specifically, I updated the
graphics driver (latest AMD Radeon (R5) graphics driver); and
all other device drivers; plus
installed one missing driver (AMD PSP 1.0 Device).
Despite my best efforts I have been able to diagnose what is causing the mid-scan system restart.
I've poured through the "Read Me" files in all the AMD folders to ensure drivers were installed correctly, used the built-in Windows driver update function, and even employed Slimware Utilities' SlimDrivers to locate the most recent drivers.
What do you suggest next?
I don't think there's anything more you could do to fix it.
I'll try to implement a workaround for this case in the next build released due sometime next week. If you need a fix sooner, please let me know.

Well Martin, this has, without a doubt, been the easiest, fastest bug fix - ever. My experience here has been overwhelmingly positive.
HWINFO64 Portable functions...and it is a real gem!
I do not have time to review its complete functionality at this very moment, but the build you provided scans completely within 5 seconds.
Once I get a chance to review it thoroughly I will update you on the build here.
You Da Man!
Due to an unrelated issue I had to Refresh my PC. Consequently, I lost the 447 Beta build of HWINFO Portable.
If at all possible would you re-link it so that I can download the .zip file?
Please use the latest public Beta version. It includes that fix and all subsequent versions will as well.
