Windows BSOD Critical Structure Corruption

a critical structure corruption means window detected that one of its files has been modified or the data that one of its files owns in memory has been modified.
In this case it was the windows 32 kernel. This file is often under attack by malware, rootkits and viruses.

The first thing you would normally attempt is to start cmd.exe as an admin and run the system file checker.
sfc.exe /scannow

this will attempt to repair corrupted files from the hidden copy on your machine. Problem is malware just goes in and modifies the backup copy. Then you run
dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
this will attempt to repair your corrupted file from a trusted online source (microsoft update server)

after you get a good copy of the file, you would then try to figure out why it was modified.
IE do a malwarebytes scan or run memtest to see if you have memory problems unrelated to windows.

all else fails:
you would have have to copy the actual memory dump file to a server like microsoft onedrive, share the file with the public and post a link.
the files are stored at c:\windows\minidump directory with the .dmp file extension.
