Malwarebytes detected threats yesterday, I can't reinstall Windows

Recommended Posts

Recently, I've been having issues with Windows. First, I couldn't install drivers. For example, the NVIDIA display driver can't be installed, and in Device Manager it shows many unknown devices that can't be installed. I've also decided to run a scan with Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner, and they found threats, and then I removed them (I can't attach the scan results as I've removed Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner, but Malwarebytes found Spyware).

I've tried the Media Creation Tool and the ISO, but both show "Windows 10 installation failed" when they reach 58% on the blue screen of installing Windows. I've noticed driver issues in the FRST logs too. I've attached the required logs below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
