I'll try to keep this short.

My computer was acting fine then I got a message from Windows Essentials saying a required restart was needed to finish an update. I exited the message as I was doing something a restarted 15 minutes later. When I restarted it went through the normal shutdown cycle then the monitor turned off. But the computer stayed on. I figured this was part of the update and it would shut down in a minute. After about 15 minutes it still didn't shut off so I shut it down manually. When I restarted it, it got to the welcome screen and it went to a blue screen. I thought it was a one time thing so I restarted it again and the same thing happen. I tried safe mode and the same thing happen.

One time the computer started it got to the desktop but wasn't acting right at all. I saw a message from Windows Essentials saying "A full system scan is required to finish threat removal." This was the first time I saw any evidence of a threat." I clicked scan but the computer was not responding.

I cleaned out the computer of dust, the cpu fan I believe (see screenshot below) accumulates a lot of dust and has been the cause of random shut offs once before. I saw a large amount of dust deep inside by the fan so I unscrewed it and blew out all the dust. I put it back together and tried again with no luck.

Here is the blue screen that comes up

Here is the inside of the computer and what I cleaned out
