Try replacing your Mobo battery, they are cheap and it might help. Also check to see how much free space is on your HDD, clearing out unneeded junk files if necessesary to enhance free space. Hard to say what is causing this problem, could be a number of things, including a virus that malwarebytes doesn't spot. Another common problem is SATA cables becoming unplugged because they plugin VERY loosely, yet the cables are VERY stiff, so if there is a bend in the cable near the pugin points they tend to "unplug themselves".
Apart from that, I would suggest that you use Norton Ghost or some other similar program to create an "Image" file of your "C" drive when you get it fixed, so that in the event it is a software problem, if it ever happens again after it is fixed, you can restore your drive from the "Image" file, though for that a "Dualboot" machine is very helpfull.

I would check the temperature in the BIOS...and the functional status of the hard drive...as first steps.
What model Dell?
Have you tried to boot into safe mode?
