    Not sure of what is happening...
    I haven't installed anything lately and this just started.
    When I log on it first changes my theme...
    My screen continuously starts glitching and flashing.
    Of course right when I am in the middle of something it gives me the blue screen of death and reboots...

    Also this is on a desktop PC

    The same thing was happening to me. I did a lot of reading on the Internet and saw that an anti-spyware program such as Malewarebytes might be causing this BSOD problem. I deleted Malwarebytes from my computer and no more BSOD problem. I've put Avast AV free on my computer
    and it also contains a free anti-spyware program [or so it says]. I wonder if the two anti-spyware programs [Malwarebytes and Avast] conflicted with each other?

    I run Malwarebytes Pro on four Windows 7 computers. None of them has experienced BSOD.

    The item mentioned is mctkmd64.sys which is a bad driver.
    https://www.file.net/process/mctkmd64.sys.html

    Or malware.

    I can't search now but I might be able to see what solutions are for resolving mctkmd64.sys
    Magic Technology driver.
