    Something to try.
    1-Boot to Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key while booting
    2-Choose safe mode, Press Enter
    3-Select operating system, Press Enter
    4-Click Administrator Account
    5-Windows is running in Safe Mode, Click YES

    Click Start - all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore.
    Restore to an earlier date before your trouble started.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If you get into your computer do more cleanup.
    1. Error Checking- This takes about 35 minutes.
    Start - my computer - right click local disk (C) - properties - Tools Tab -
    Error checking section - Check now - check mark both boxes - Start -
    This requires a restart to begin.

    2. Start - Run - type - sfc /scannow - OK
    Don't forget the space between c and /
    You will need the Recovery CD that came with your PC if any thing is found wrong.
    Don't insert unless asked for.

    Then use the Defragmenter.
    Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Defragmenter - Analyze and Defragment.

    CCleaner and use the Clean and Registry.

    Un check the Recycle Bin and Run and anything else you don't want removed.
