What is the problem with your Discord Rob? maybe someone here could help :)

Hey Denis, been working on it most of today. Googled every fix but nothing seems to work. There are quite a few Threads on it so it is not that uncommon.

By default, when Discord starts up it runs an update.exe file. At this point it fails to update and just goes into an endless loop of looking and failing to update.

Downloaded latest version, uninstalled several times, restarted the pc several times, renamed the update.exe file, checked Firewall and virus programs checked with Malwarebytes and Spybot. Nothing seems to work.

I'm officially open to suggestions

Well, it appears my BSOD issues have nothing to do with my new computer, but my G25.  That's typical, I mention something about still using an old G25 and
then I get a BSOD followed by noticing a burning smell.
I suspect that it was pulling too much current through the USB 3.1 connector and that resulted in the BSOD.

Interestingly I hadn't noticed it playing up, just the smell. I'll pull it apart and see if it's something nice like the brushes needing replacing, if not
then I'll get a new wheel.     
Hope that hasn't caused any problems with the new pc. Does the port still work?

yeah, it all still works fine. I did scare the crap out of me a bit especially as it's a new cpu/ram/mobo/nvme ssd.
I'll have a look at the wheel this weekend. I'd like to keep it going somehow as I occasionally do a bit of retrogaming on old pc's and the
G25 will work on everything from Win98 up to Win10.
I now have 2 spare G25 wheels one of which you can have, I live in Coffs Harbour.

It's good to find the cause, and an excuse for a new wheel is a good thing :)
A burning smell near your PC is always alarming though.
