BSOD 0x00000f4 or Shut Down while playing games

Hello. My laptop shuts down while I am playing games,watching video on Youtube, Live stream or for no obvious reason. I recently opened it and cleaned it, changed the thermal paste. My GPU temperature is (according SpeedFan) 65-80 while doing nothing and goes 90-100 while playing youtube/twich.tv video or video game. The laptop just shuts down or BSOD. After the shut down it takes time to load again. It just starts and shut down again in the BIOS. I'll attach my last minidump file.

Sorry for the bad English and grammar. I'm not native speaker how you can read. Thanks for any help!

We need all the files from the BSOD utility to check further. The 0xf4 bug check code is a termination of a critical Windows process. In this case, it was Wininit.Exe and it failed due to lack of memory. This is a Windows start up process that controls the start of other programs after booting. It is also a known target for malware.

Run SFC /scannow from an elevated command prompt and report any error on the console.
Download and install the FREE version of MBAM, update it and run a full scan.
Review your startup programs and trim where you can.

Included for information only.
Code:
 
CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION (f4)
A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been
terminated.

system; when they are terminated (for any reason), the system can no
longer function.

Thank you for the response!
After running the SFC /scannow it said that there is Restore pending and I need to reboot.
The scan of MBAM found 6 malware, after removing them I restarted the laptop and it shat down in the BIOS. Right now I can't start it and I'll try later.

PS: I have one more minidump file wich I'll upoload when the laptop starts.

Please upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download

Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.

Then boot into Advanced Boot Options > Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced)

Does it work?

When you are on the desktop, try Windows Update - Reset.

If it failed, we will take help of the activation and update specialists.

Thanks for stepping in Archie. I wonder if this could be some clever malware? I've never seen a "pending restore" like that stop SFC.

I guess it is possible, Ken
IMO the seatools test will determine our next steps. If the Stop 0xF4 is not caused by any physical hardware issue, then malware will be a prime suspect for sure.
