    Go to Device Manager > Find your graphics card > Properties > look for the Roll Back Driver button and press it. Does this help?

    Managed to get it fixed, Windows Kept downgrading video driver to 17.1.1, but sticking with 17.3.3, so disabled Windows Update from doing driver updates with Windows Update

    Ran some other maintenance tasks, cleaned up component store, and system is functioning very well now, besides annoying internet related issue, but I think that's on Comcast side/or related to Manufacter of the Gateway device.

    Also found out I forgot to exclude Secondlife/Firestorm viewer folders and files in Avast exclusions, so that is probably why was slow to
