The computer works fine in safe mode....but when I start normal it freezes up and turns the screen white smearing black numbers and lines in a pattern across the screen.  Ran Hitman, RogueKiller, Malwarebytes, and a few other removal tools cant seem to figure it out.  Avast Boot-time Scan pulled a ton of PUPs and issues.  Could it be a hardware issue or possibly the Processor overheating when it is running all systems out of safe mode?

In safe mode...your video drivers are not loaded...system uses Windows default video drivers.


I would go to Device Manager...uninstall current drivers for graphics...reboot the system and reinstall the graphics drivers for the system/motherboard/card.
