Windows 10: Windows 10 crashing while attempting to play Dota 2

    Windows 10 crashing while attempting to play Dota 2

    I don't get a BSOd, but this seemed like the most closely related forum section to post in. Dota 2 keeps crashing whenever I try to play a game. In general, my computer is also HORRIBLY slow when doing rather basic things, such as playing a Youtube video. My computer was running just fine yesterday, but now it's lagging horribly. Attached is the results of the dm_log_collector. Also, my system specs are filled in, but please note that I have 2 graphics cards, not just 1.

    What I know/have attempted:

    1. I ran 3 free Anti-virus programs and only 1 found a file to quarantine, however even after it did so I'm still experience lag/crashing.

    2. NVIDIA Geforce Experience crashed while trying to install a new driver. After I re-opened it, it said I had the latest drivers.

    3. I have both an Intel card and an NVIDIA card, but when I run dxdiag it reads my card as the Intel one. However, I heard that you can sometimes have Windows select a certain graphics card when running certain programs. I might have it set to do this, however, I'm not sure.

    Please uninstall Avira, it causes some problems.
    Windows Defender should be enabled automatically, or you can manually enable Windows Defender after removing Avira.
    How do I uninstall my Avira Antivirus product?

    Avira is now uninstalled, but the crashes were happening before this.

    Im curious though - why isn't dxdiag recognizing my nvidia card? It only shows 1 tab for the intel card.

    What is device manager showing about the nvidia card?

    I'll confirm this 100% when I get home from work, but I think I checked that and it read both cards fine. I was hesitant to disable the Intel card though just so I could always have something that Windows could fall back to. Maybe I should have just disabled it?
