    Delete all 3 files: avgtpx64.sys, PTSimBus.sys, PTSimHid.sys

    Delete the subkey for each of them (all 3), found in Regedit at

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services

    Reboot.

    Make sure you do that well or could be problems. It's not hard. Might have to look for subkeys a little.

    Done. Anything else to do? I'll test running some games.

    Well, the games I tested (TF2, Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs) all crashed after about 30 minutes or less of playing. HL2 was okay, but I didn't play for very long. But I haven't had a BSOD yet, so fingers crossed I guess.

    That means that you have a temperature problem.

    As a test to verify, open up the case and put a room fan blowing on the inside of it.

    If games never crash like that, then you have an answer and should add more fans to the system.

    The fan seemed to help. I'll be getting some compressed air to clean it out and see if that helps any. I don't have much room in my case for more fans, so I want to make sure it's something that can't be fixed without it.

    Scratch that last post. Games still crash while using the fan.
    It don't think it's overheating at this point. The highest I've seen my GPU was 52 degrees and it while playing games it stays around 40.

    Any suggestions for something else to try?

    GPU is not the only component that temperature is critical for, but the test was good to do.

    The basics...scan for malware with malwarebytes, uninstall programs that are not critical to you, maybe try another power supply if you have another machine to borrow one from with enough output power.

    Scanned with malwarebytes, removed what it found, but the games still crash.
    Unfortunately I have no spare power supply.

    Clean install Windows. Killdisk use first is very recommended.
