    it's either hardware (overheating etc) or software (corrupt os/virus)

    hardware - check fans/vents/psu for excessive dust

    scan for virus (use malwarebytes (free not trial)

    check system files - open cmd.exe with admin privileges - type (including the space) sfc /scannow and hit enter - check the report at the end or cbs log

    Also change the auto run's if you know what you are doing.

    Also try using this for a quick malware check.
