Some apps are working, but others not so much

Ever since a few days ago when the computer decided it was time to do an auto update a Windows update, Windows 10 update, I was in the process of a system scan and shut down after that. But earlier that same day, we had a power out that lasted 20 minutes. The result was that later on that night, when I did the regular runtime activity of doing a Norton Quick Scan then set the PC to shut down after it completed, I walked away and during this time a blue screen error appeared and caused the system to crash and automatically restart. When I went to look at the PC after I thought it was shut down after a Norton system scan, the windows welcome screen was there, waiting for me to enter my Windows password. I ran the Norton scan once more time and this time the PC actually shut itself down as it was instructed to do. The next day my PC started up like normal and I opened up my browser to see what was going on at myLot. First thing happened was ... my browser crashed. Then after several unsuccessful attempts at getting my browser to working properly my PC popped up a blue screen error message that read: Memory Management error, tell support about this error message when you go get help, system will restart automatically. From that point on I was furious. I was in a Microsoft Chat window for 2 hours and it was unbelievable. I was told I could do this, or I could do that, or whatever, but all in all I later realized that no matter what I did, which was a factory restore of Windows 10 which did not actually remove some files it should have removed and I lost over 100 apps and millions of files. After that I figured Okay, I will reinstall Origin and redownload The Sims 4 and start to play that game. Well, half way into the Origin process of downloading my games the system crashed. It did this over and over with each download and install and finally I just figured maybe my PC's wireless signal was getting interrupted by being in the other side of the house and perhaps a weak signal to my PC from the wireless router was getting weak or interruptions from other wireless devices on my network or within the vicinity of our house. The error messages are as follows: 1. system service exception 2. kernel security check failure 3. IRCL not less or equal 4. Memory Management Each of these are called Windows Stop Errors or something similar. I type these particular phrases in a Google search box but only get the run around. I am certain that one of several issues may be causing me not to be able to download large files like my Sims 4 games from Origin, or the computer is connected wirelessly at about 50 feet from the router and is getting interruptions during downloads or the computer has dust buildup inside the CPU tower or the computer has faulty software and even possibly Windows 10 is corrupted. But the bottom line is, at this moment, I can get online and chat here and I can watch videos on YouTube but If I try to download a NVIDIA video update driver it causes a Windows blue screen of death when it is half way finished and never completes. And I can not play my Sims. Basically I am looking at a computer that is both messed up due to Windows 10 being a problem or I will have to just go buy a new one. That will mean that one day I will no longer be here at myLot. I am here to tell you that I will only stop doing my thing here if my computer stops working completely. Right now I think my PC is working 50 percent so for now I can still do my thing here. I no longer get to use Microsoft Word Starter 2010 which came with Windows 7 free and since the factory reset, that along with over 100 other applications and millions of files were deleted. Now my 2 TB PC has only 4 clusters being used as the rest of the disc is empty. lol

You said it right. Windows XP was good for playing games as well as runing older version software that now is obsolete in Windows 10 Home 64 bit and worse, some of my applications were removed by Windows just because they thought I should not have them in my computer. They have basically taken over my PC with auto updates, now BSOD has taken it's toll and still some mediocre apps still work but the ones I really want like The Sims 4 and Origin and some games from Gamehouse, just won't download nor function without BSOD and PC forced restart.

@akalinus , Well, it's not a good thing. It's in fact a terrible situation and along with that I have to deal with the over 1 billion Yahoo accounts that got hacked a few years ago that will cause probably several millions of users to lose their data their PCs and their sanity.

The apps are maybe okay for some people but I prefer not paying 1,000.00 or more for a 2 TB PC with 10 GB ram and an intel i5 micro quad core processor just to have it crash just because some error or incompatibility issues with Windows 10 that before, in Windows 7, worked perfectly.
