Does the message *really* say "the display continuously crashes"?
If so, that's a very strange message!

If not, what makes you think it is the display which is crashing, not
the computer?

Generally, if something goes wrong with the video display other than
being disconnected or being turned off or otherwise losing power,
Windows won't know about it, so can't put up a message box. It will
be obvious that Windows can't put up a message box if the monitor
is disconnected or turned off, but Windows *will* beep in that case.

Conversely, if your monitor loses the signal from your computer, it
may put up a message box saying so. That could be because the
video cable is loose and makes a poor connection. If it happens
when you adjust the position of the monitor, that's probably it.

If you actually meant "computer" when you said "display", then I'll
leave it to others to explain what to do about your computer crashing.

Odd that it only happens in your browser.

Go here (blue button top right) download and "Save" the file:

Double click the saved file and run the Scan. I have found it has always been safe to run the Clean but there are options. By all means copy/paste the log onto here if you are unsure. Let us know if there has been any change to your issue.

EDIT:
I overlapped with above post.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

So, while using your browser, Comodo Dragon, the screen often flashes,
after which one box pops up saying that your "display" has recovered from
a crash, and a second box pops up saying that "the display continuously
crashes". Is that correct?

My first guess would be that your computer has been infected by some
kind of technical support scam malware, which tries to convince you that
it is actually infected by someone else's malware, and you should go to
their website to get your computer cleaned by them. But in that case,
you should be seeing such a message.

The use of the term "display" in this context seems really peculiar. Maybe
it is intended to refer to the display screens of handheld devices as well
as monitors and laptop screens. But in general, computers crash, while
video displays go bad in other ways. They never "crash".

Worth running this freebie as it often unearths things that your AV can miss:

(green button top right). Keep logs of any malware program you run which finds something - they could prove useful.
