I understand that, but I just was answering your question
I'd like to go further with your SSD and HDD after a malware scan.
The why is easy,
an infection could cause critical registry changes (depending on the infection of course),
hardware failure could also cause a system to malfunction including problems with the registry.
Is the firmware of your SSD up to date? You could use Samsung Magician for checking this.
Please run a threat scan with Malwarebytes*, a full scan with your AV, scan your system with Adwcleaner, Kaspersky TTDSKiller, ESET Online Scanner and SuperAntiSpyware
*(Uncheck trial version in the installation process)
