I ditched bitdefender years ago. It's protection is top notch, but the program itself left a lot to be desired. Some pages took forever to load (youtube), and sometimes the updater failed to work. Sometimes the updater pegged my cpu at 100% for long periods of time. I just use defender and the...
I believe the feeds app is the news and weather app on the taskbar next to the clock. To turn it off, right click on a blank area of the taskbar, select "News and interests", then select "turn off". See if that helps.

Sounds a lot like a hardware issue. First I'd reset the cmos. Then like Trouble recommended, check your ram with memtest86 and maybe run prime95 to stress the cpu and heaven benchmark to stress the graphics. I'd also monitor cpu and gpu tempuratures while running prime95 and heaven.
