Although this had happened to me, I made it stop by recovering my PC. But this is more of a question rather than asking for a solution, in what way would defragging cause a complication like that if it could? during those moments i had been playing either PUBG (pulic unkown battleground) or Wow (World of warcraft) Twice with pub then once with wow and figured, (i'm not dealing with this) and recovered, never had the problem since. If anyone has any input i'd love to hear it! every time i tried to find answers online i'm assuming my wording doesnt get me anywhere since the questions i find are (should i shutdown my pc after defragging).

It's very likely that this is not a defrag problem, but you've probably made a choice in the settings to turn off your computer after defragmenting.
What kind of defrag program do you use?

Defragging a disk that has errors can cause corruption.


Open a Command prompt and type chkdsk /r , then press Enter.

Download the free version of HDD Regenerator from http://www.dposoft.net/hdd.html  and run it under Windows for a standard check without repair.
You do not need to purchase a license for this use it as a trial.
Once you are completely sure there are no bad sectors you could go for chkdsk /r .
