Basically a system thread exception is a bsod and it sounds like athwb.sys is the cause. This relates to a Qualcom Atheros network driver and possibly needs either removing or updating. I'll move your thread to the correct section. Please read the sticky found in the wondows 10 bsod section on how to post the details.

Hi.but sorry i cant do that as my the restarting thing just loops so i cant see my desktop what do i do?
Please do not send pm's as we do not answer questions via the personal message app.

If you can get a friend to download the windows 10 iso from here:
Windows 10

You could then use it to either repair the current os or perform a clean install.

Also can you please post the make and model of your machine as there may be other options but we need to know what your using so we can advise properly.
