Hello. Just built my new PC for a few days. Seems to have a virus now? I only installed drivers for all my hardware plus steam, chrome, and WinZip.
Started up the PC after 2 days of playing games, no problems. Although did realize the comp sometimes while basic navigating and opening programs, it wasn't snappy as I thought it'd be.
Opened up Google chrome, watch YouTube. And had pubg on.
Noticed that Google chrome consistently crashed every few minutes or so.
Closed the webpage which led to a strange ghosting effect that quickly went away. Like there were two webpages open.
This happened a few times....
After a few times, which I can't remember if I got a bsod before or after installing antivirus software.
I was still able to restart the PC normally after 3-5 times.
EDIT: the installation of antivirus was never completed all the times I tried. Just said installation didn't work because it was missing a file. Something like that.
I ended up changing the boot to flash drive and tried reinstalling windows.
Deleted all partitions, started install, and got another bsod. I'll list codes after.
Now the PC starts and is stuck in windows loading.
First bsod code I got was:
Driver irwl not less or equal
Second code during reinstallation of windows:
Kernal security check failure
Not sure where to start. I dont want to damage anything. Please help
