So, you downloaded a fresh install of Windows from Microsoft's site, using the media creation tool, then installed off the flash drive you made, completely wiping the existing hard drive? Just want to make sure; there have been many misunderstandings in this thread due to the terminology used.
Any ideas now?

Just to confirm again, did actually you go to Microsoft's Media Creation Tool download site and run that program to create a new Windows 10 install USB drive to then install a clean installation of Windows to your hard drive or solid state drive? Do you know how to install Windows 10? If you did it properly you would no longer have everything you had installed on Windows 10.

The problem you are having is possibly related to a non Microsoft .dll file. Can you list all the other hardware you have installed on your motherboard and whether you have downloaded and installed the newest drivers for everything. This would include any device currently installed like a printer, microphone, mouse, keyboard or even an external hard drive.

Uninstall any drivers and software that were installed for the blue yeti mic and disconnect it. Use the system as you would normally for a few days and see what happens. If you still get the error message it was probably not the mic drivers and software.

What error messages are you still getting or anything new? If you are actually installing Windows properly from a new installer with a new installation, you shouldn't be getting the same error messages unless Windows update is installing a driver that is broken. The only other possibility is either your CPU or motherboard are faulty. Maybe try running userbenchmark and post the web-page link result. It might reveal some issue with a piece of hardware. https://www.userbenchmark.com/
