I agree with centaur78, and recommend that you don't start your computer anymore until the PSU is replaced or ruled out.
The kind of failures you're describing and from the video, not to mention it already possibly damaged a SSD, can cause more damage like: motherboard, CPU, RAM, SSD, HDD, etc.

ThermalTake PSUs don't have good reputation, the one you have is not there best model.
Either borrow a PSU to test with, or take it to a repair shop and tell them you want to test the system with a different PSU.

I believe it may be the PSU, currently running burn in tests, and all my other
Component have been fine, while PSU has crashed. Thanks guys! Much appreciated

Hope your not running stress tests with that PSU, you are risking damaging other components.
Please be careful.

Has anyone else figured out a workaround to this issue or is uninstalling this the only option? I have had 50 machines over the last day having this problem. Any easy way to uninstall every update? I'm not running WSUS just yet. So manually uninstalling is in my future :/
