Roll Back Driver

Can you "Roll Back" the NVidia driver to the previous one (in the Device Manager)?

okay did run chkdsk again on safe mode and got this:
Tiedostojärjestelmän tyyppi on NTFS.
Toinen prosessi käyttää asemaa. Chkdsk (another process uses disk/system)
voi ilmoittaa virheistä, vaikka tiedot eivät olisi vioittuneet.
Aseman nimi on HP.

VAROITUS! F-parametria ei määritetty. (warning F-parameter is not determined)
CHKDSK suoritetaan Vain luku -tilassa. (run in read only mode)

CHKDSK tarkistaa tiedostoja (vaihe 1 / 3)...
2 prosenttia valmiina. (152013/760064 tiedostotietuetta käsitelty)
Määritetietue (128, "") on vioittunut tiedostotietuelohkossa
169795. (((((modifier record is damaged on filerecord section))))
760064 tiedostotietuetta käsitelty.
Tiedostotarkistus suoritettu.
3151 suurta tiedostotietuetta käsitelty.

Virheitä löytyi. CHKDSK ei voi jatkaa vain luku -tilassa. (chkdsk cant continue in read only mode)

Yep as wildstar says mate that is how chkdsk works all versions up to 8 - plus turn off the Windows Defender as you don't need two real time AV's at the same time. If Malwarebytes is real time too then disable it I only ever use it for on call scans (free version).

You may want to try running these too
AdwCleaner Download download from here

Did you save those reg entries via CCleaner you may have to reinstall them.

Hope you have all your data backed up because it is beginning to look very much like a clean install tikkar.
