How do I prevent a BSOD when trying to watch video in Chrome? Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000

I have tried uninstalling the Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 driver from the device manager making sure to tick the uninstall driver software box. Then I let the computer automatically reinstall the driver after rebooting. This didn't work. I then tried uninstalling the driver again and reinstalling the one directly from Intel's website. This initially appeared to work but ultimately did not fix the issue. I also tried reinstalling Chrome and rebooting to no avail.

·        What is the brand and model of your system?

·        Do you have the BSOD while using the system on any other task?

·        What driver version have you tested?

·        Do you have all the driver and BIOS updates provided by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) installed on the system?

The issue has been resolved. It was Windows Memory Integrity in Windows Defender causing the BSOD.
