Hey all. I've never really had problems with my system since I bought it in 2010'ish. But I went traveling in February, and just got back a week ago. So I vacuumed the tower out, ran windows update, driver booster, etc. Everything seemed good, except one windows "cumulative update." A couple days later a bunch of my system files were corrupted. I couldn't open any folders, exes, videos, but I could still play games, browse the net, etc.... Whenever I attempted to open a file folder the screen would flash black for a second, then nothing.
I couldn't solve the issue (couldn't run a repair or anything) so today I ran a fresh windows 10 install. That seemed to solve it. But a few hours later I got a BSOD because there was something wrong with AMDSBS.SYS. I'm an idiot and didn't write down the error code or any specifics. Sorry. I ran a repair off a flash drive copy of windows 10 which seemed to fix THAT, but then I got a NTFS.SYS (something like that?) error. When trying to log in to my account the account page was black, and the cursor was only visible when moving the mouse. It was just flickering and nothing else.
I was worse off than before so I just... reinstalled windows again :/
So I have checked the health of my Vertex 460 SSD, which my OS is on, and it is apparently 95% healthy. I checked RAM health, but apparently that's also healthy... I really have no idea what is going on.

"Perfmon /report" was stuck for 10 mins so I don't think it was working? :/
