I am having two issues with my desktop computer.
When I went to open up control panel, my computer or another folder I am having issues and it is not loading or is very slow. The left side bar has an icon with a magnifying glass and the icons are not loading. Files in the folder are white. Also in control panel the icons do not show up and there is only a white background. My computer folder shows a green loading bar.
Also when I restart/shutdown my computer is stuck at logging off part. I need to force my computer shutdown.
Steps I have looked into.
system restore: there are only two system restore points from 5/13 and 5/14 made by windows update. Should I do a system restore?
clean boot: I did a clean boot with only microsoft and my av (avast free) service running and the issue still occurs.
What could be causing this issue and how can it be fixed?
I have backups of my files but not of my operating system and already did a fresh install a couple of weeks ago and it was fine for awhile.
Also I sometimes get this BSOD (which could be because of a parallel port pci card i recently installed):
