Press the Win + X keys simultaneously and, in Device Manager, double-click "Network adapters". Then right-click on the driver labeled as Wi-Fi adapter and select Properties. Next, you need the Driver tab and click Roll Back Driver. This will install the previously known stable version of the driver.
If you haven't updated your driver for a long time, you should do it now since it is the outdated driver that can also cause the netwtw06.sys error.
Open Device Manager as described above and double-click Network Adapters. Then right-click on the Wi-Fi driver, and select Update Driver. Better to click on Search automatically for updated driver software and then just wait while your computer downloads and installs the latest wireless driver.

To do this, type cmd in the search box on the Start menu and right-click Command Prompt. Next, select Run as administrator and click Yes to display User Account Control.
Now, enter sfc /scannow in the window and press Enter - wait for the procedure to complete without interrupting it.
This tool has proven itself on the positive side, so if the problem is in the system files, you can get rid of the blue screen of death.

If running the SFC tool fails to fix the problem, you can try running another similar DISM tool. To do this, open a command prompt as administrator as above and type DISM.exe / Online / Cleanup-image / Restorehealth in the window and press Enter.
If the damage is found, the procedure may take longer, so don’t worry about that. Then restart your computer to check if the “page fault in nonpaged area netwtw06.sys” error has disappeared.
