Hello everyone, I am having a problem with my Dell Latitude E6420. I am getting this random blue screen, but it looks fake to me. This is what it looks like:

If I use Ctrl + Alt + Delete it pulls up the screen, then I click log off and it works fine, I don't even have to restart. I have done a virus scan with Avast but nothing has come up, does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

Here is a video also:

This is very fascinating, I have never seen this before.
Is there anything in the event viewer at all?
It certainly looks like a virus of some kind.
What processes are running?

It isn't a real BSOD, you are correct.
It would never have a number on it to call. 0xED is UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME.
So whoever created this 'BSOD' can't even do his research.

There really aren't any processes running except for system, adobe, and opera. Avast won't pick up a virus so I have no idea at all. I am going to try some other anti virus methods and I will tell you what I got.

Good idea.
Is there anything logged in the event viewer?

Contact this free number, it's the Microsoft customer service help desk. They'll want to know about this situation, they should sort something out.

Looks like malware to me, maybe interacting with/from Opera since it's displaying a memory exhaustion page (whether it's true or not).

I'd run a scan with your AV/malwarebytes.
