So here is my story.
I was gaming on my PC, as usual, then I randomly opened up a harmless image that I've opened before (and that my friend tested, and said it opened fine for him without issues), and it showed a weird error that I forget. So I dragged it onto my desktop, and tried opening it again. Didn't work. My taskbar icons then disappeared, and Windows just kinda broke. I closed my programs, and restarted my PC. Everything seemed fine for a few hours, until my PC just crashed, and shutoff instantly, as if it bluescreened, but instead of bluescreening, it just went straight to the restart part. After that, time and time again, I tried logging into my computer, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and where the welcome screen should've been, was replaced by a black screen with a cursor in the middle. The windows key did not work, CTRL+ALT+DELETE did not work, Windows Key + R did not work, nothing. However, you could move the cursor. I restarted several times, and it did not fix itself. I had to reinstall Windows, and I was able to get my files back with Windows.Old. Now, instead of crashing, I have a new issue. My Windows Plug and Play or DCOM Server Process Launcher services will terminate unexpectedly, and will try to force shutdown my PC within a minute or so. When this happens, I generally just go in the command prompt and type shutdown /a to abort the shutdown. As far as PC gaming and general file transfer, program opening, downloading stuff, etc. goes, it works fine. However, my audio will be shot, and when I try and change the volume of my audio device, it's just a black box. It wont' detect any audio devices. Plus, whenever I try to do something in the control panel of Windows 7 when this happens, it will just not work. No errors or anything, but when I try opening audio control, or try to open the program uninstaller, it'll just sit there as I pointlessly click on it. Nothing will come up via the Control Panel. Note that this is a fresh copy of Windows 7. I reinstalled. I have no idea what might be causing this. I did a full scan on my drive with Malware Bytes, and the only thing it found was a taskbar, which didn't really solve anything, as I've still been having the problem.
