Visual Studio 2017 Community - Blue Screen of Death when starting my project (CTRL+F5)

Hi All - I have a project that I've been working on for a few weeks and I haven't had any issues running it, meaning when I click CTRL+F5 it opens my browser, connects to my localhost:port and displays my web page.  

However yesterday, out of the blue (literally) CTRL+F5 now causes my entire computer to crash and display a Blue screen of Death.  The BSOD error reads:

What Failed: FLTMGR.SYS

Coincidentally my coworkers computer experienced the same exact issue approximately 3 hour after mine.  All of a sudden CTRL-F5 caused BOTH our laptops to crash with the same exact error message.

We tried the following:

  • Created a new blank web application (assumed there was something in one of our projects that was causing the BSOD), left the default code untouched, did a build of the app and CTRL + F5.  (Bluescreen)
  • Uninstalling/Reinstalling VS 2017 Community (Bluescreen)
  • Openned VS 2013 Pro(I had this older version on my laptop), created a new blank web app (Like before) left the default code untouched, did a build of the app and CTRL + F5.  (Bluescreen)
  • Updating Windows and reattempt the above.  (Bluescreen)

So I'm at a loss.  I have no idea how to go about fixing this.  I'm wondering if anyone know how I can troubleshoot and hopefully fix this situation.

Thanks in advance for your help.
