Try a memory diagnostic in search, and test over night. Just type those words in search.

Wow, I made that other post many months ago. Forgot all about it.
Seems that the problem is deeper than I thought.
Try to run a full anti virus scan
Download and scan with malwarebytes.
If negative run a mem test using the link below.
