I was trying to install malwarebytes from https://www.malwarebytes.com/. The download went fine, but when I tried to install, the progress bar got to the end and my computer froze, I got a pop up saying Microsoft Windows has stopped responding, and it asked me if I wanted to end the program. I hit no every time it popped up for a while, but after several minutes and seeing nothing good happening from hitting no, I started hitting yes, however that didn't solve any problems either.


After getting frustrated with my frozen computer, I held the power button to force it off. When I turned it back on, I got the BSOD with a BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO error.


I got back into my computer by following this youtube video: https://youtu.be/Wor7mASx3ws. Though I had to do it on my C drive rather than my D drive.


I don't feel like this is a proper fix though. I can use my computer now, but I'm afraid to do anything important on it since I don't know what caused the issue and I don't know that its fixed for good.


I would appreciate assistance investigating and resolving this.
