What you should do is try a system restore, do you know how to do that?
Expert:  Martin replied 2 years ago.

Here are the steps: (Note no personal files will be deleted, only settings will be reverted)

Press WindowsKey+R type rstrui and hit Enter

(WindowsKey can be found on the bottom left of the keyboard between Ctrl and Alt and usually has a flag-like icon on it)

Go next and see if you can choose one of the oldest Restore points, or select a date where you are sure the computer was working properly.

Go Next and let the system restore run.

Let me know when you've completed the restore.
