Back to Acer I fear

That sounds bad. As is hardware failure bad. Remember I can't tell if you are using other than the supplied OS and drivers.

I spy

Spybot-S&D 2 Scanner Service and
Spybot-S&D 2 Security Center Service and
Spybot-S&D 2 Updating Service .
All three running while running Avast .

I don't know if that's relative though...
The Pro's will tell us

Speccy reading.

1. Online Guardian?
Not what it purports to be,
Read https://www.how-to-remove.com/online-guardian/

2. I see other mixes of protections, so think back to when this started. Go back to stock and clean an OS as you can to avoid a factory reinstall.

3. Citrix
This could be it. Remote apps tend to setup and monopolize the graphics system. Remove.

4. https://malwaretips.com/threads/ever-heard-of-bytefence.56677/ is in line with my read of item 2.
Someone is installing multiple "protection* apps and that never ends well.

5. uTorrent

End of reading. Torrent user. Can't help further.

Because of item 5 my advice is a factory reset.
