For a few weeks now I will randomly get this blue screen. When this blue screen problem started my computer has been very slow as well and and quickly got slower and slower. I do not remember downloading or installing anying new in the last month. I can Virus scan but only the fast scan, if i slow scan i get the blue screen a minute of scanning. Even Ccleaner does not work properly. It will clean everything but temp files.
I already backed up my files on a flash stick and was prepared to use my system backup but it was deleted.

Anyone know how I can fix this problem?

Hi Nekotechan, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

In order for us to get a better understanding of what is causing this please download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Ccleaner has a registry cleaner, Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:

• Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

• Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

Please post the make and model of this computer.

• Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.

• Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.

• The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in unpredictable results.

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

What happened when you went to download this? Did you download it successfully?

When you unzipped this file there should have been three icons left in the folder, which one did you click on?
