Lately I noticed a considerable drop in performance and frame rates(constant lag spikes) when playing video games,so I decided to scan my PC for malware and such.Just to be sure,I did that in safe mode.But just after I start scanning,my PC shuts down abruptly.It does not restart or give me a blue screen.This happens when I scan with either Avast or Malwarebytes,but only in safe mode.

I scanned for malware like this before,and it worked,Malwarebytes being able to do it's job and delete some bad stuff in my WINDOWS folder.Now it doesn't work anymore.

I do NOT see an overall performance drop in my PC,this only happens in video games.My graphics drivers are up to date,so what could be wrong.
