Hope I can get some help with this, it started early yesterday morning.
Laptop freezes shortly after startup in normal mode, 5-15 minutes after logging in. It's working fine in safe mode. Ran chkdsk, ran windows memory diagnostic tool, looked at problem history and event history - nada. Did system restore to 24 hrs before problem started, didn't help. I have Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and AVG free on it, ran both on full scan which didn't come up with anything.
Not getting any BSOD or error messages when it freezes - can't even use ctrl+alt+del, just have to shut it down.
Weirdly, CPU usage in safe mode is between 90-100%, and when I checked it in normal mode it was between 20-40%.
Does this sound like a bad/corrupt driver? If so, how do I uninstall and reinstall? I'm so not technically proficient, so bear with me.
Appreciate any advice, thanks!
