    This is a log collector that is used in another forum.
    Please run it and post a share link into the thread:
    BSOD - Posting Instructions - Windows 10 Forums
    It will automatically collect: msinfo32, dxdiag, drivers, mini dumps, hosts, install, uninstall, services, event viewer files, etc.

    3 alternative paths suggested
    Will do the BSOD first then try running the command text and finally will as a last resort, do the reinstall if all else has failed.
    Will keep you updated and thanks for all the help so far

    unable to do either the command option, even in safe mode, or the BSOD option, both saying "Access denied"

    Guess I have to do the reinstall.
    Are there still things to run after I have done a reinstall whilst keeping data?

    Scroll down to the bottom of the page to try the beta tool:

    BSOD - Posting Instructions - Windows 10 Forums

    log collector v2-beta06.zip



    If the above does not work please post that into the thread.

    Then open administrative command prompt and copy and paste this whole command:

    Code:
    md "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\CollectedFiles"&wmic /output:"%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\CollectedFiles\hotfix.txt" qfe list full /format:table&copy %SystemRoot%\minidump\*.dmp "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\CollectedFiles"&type %SystemRoot%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts >> "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\CollectedFiles\hosts.txt"&systeminfo > "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\CollectedFiles\systeminfo.tmp"&findstr /v "Owner."

    The beta was blocked as was the command line that I pasted.

    See if you can modify Windows defender.
    Then see if you can run the DM log collector options and/or the administrative command prompt commands to post logs into the thread.

    If Defender's Controlled Folder Access is turned you can get results like that, check and turn it off if necessary.
