Noticed this was the "more" correct forum.
I'm at a real loss here... I'm typing form my roommates laptop, but I'll give you a rundown of what it going on. Any help will be greatly appreciated! I have a 37 page paper due on Monday... ha.
Okay i was streaming youtube and the laptop was running just fine, then all the applications closed and the computer restarted. It booted back up (after a significantly longer time) and immediately tried to open malwarebytes. However, now no applications of any kind will open. Not even IE. So I have no idea what to do. I booted into safe mode and am having the same problem.
I've been watching the task manager but only 5 processes are running. All of which seem normal except for maybe CTFmon.exe. don't know why that would be running of all things.
I'm in desperate need of help, so thank you for any advice you may have.
EDIT: Guess I should also describe what is going on... When you try to open an application, it appears in the task manager, and the spinning circle appears next to my pointer, but nothing happens and the .exe disappears from task manager.
