Hello, I've been dealing with blue screens the pass couple of days...

These files look suspicious:
notoskrnl.exe
win32k.sys

They seem corrupt.

Yesterday, I was on the Internet, when the computer suddenly blue-screened. Upon startup, it stated that an IRQL_not_less_or_equal error was preventing windows from starting. To make matters worse, I can log into Safe Mode only 1/3 of the time without my PC crashing at the sign-in screen or as the desktop is loading. Sometimes it will even crash at complete random while I am inside Safe Mode while clicking on a button.

To make matters more interesting, I was using Malwarebytes to scan for viruses, and it found 60 in my system folders. Oddly enough, my computer randomly decided to shut down (and prompted me it was shutting down, like it had a mind of its own) while Malwarebytes was still scanning my hard drive, leading me to believe this is the virus's way of avoiding detection. The same happens when I use other virus scanners, too.

I also used ESET online scanner and it found 18 win32 trojans and removed them, but I'm still having this problem. I also cleaned my registry, but no luck.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
