Thanks Philip

At the windows login screen, hold the SHIFT key down and click on the power icon in the bottom right and click Restart (still with Shift held down).

Keep it held down, until the computer has restarted, and you are at a menu.

Click on Troubleshoot, then Advance, then click on System Restore.

Perform a restore from the last restore date, and let this complete.

When it has, tell me if you can then sign in please.

Thank you
