After torrenting Fallout 4 yesterday, my PC BSOD'ed while it was installing. Then whenever I tried to reboot the system, it would always BSOD.
I then took out the single drive in the system, which is a 120GB Transcend SSD, and reformatted it on a seperate system. I also shredded it using McAfee's software, as well as removing the volume using Disk Management. I then created a USB boot drive using the Windows 10 media tool.
When I tried booting from the USB to reinstall Windows 10, the computer still gives me a BSOD after going through post. I highly suspect there is a virus somewhere and I really need to get this computer up and running again.
Will changing the entire harddrive to a new one help?
I am open to any and all suggestions to how to fix this computer, I have around 3 weeks to get this done before my next semester starts in school.
