I'm not sure if this is malware or virus or some other issue. It just happened out of no where. Past few weeks my computer has been having little stutters when doing certain things like loading up a game or a program, but only for a second so I ran a virus scan in AVG and Malwarebytes. Both came up with nothing, so I didn't think much of it. But a few days ago my computer booted into CHKDSK out of no where and did that a few times. And since then the stutters have gotten worse, to the point of happening when doing almost anything. And now it just freezes everything for anywhere from 5 seconds to a minute. But not like a normal freeze, I'm still able to move my mouse around and change to different windows, but I can't interact with anything. This is happening from the moment I start my computer. I've noticed that when this happens task manager shows all cpu usage drop to 0%. And now I've been getting this error sometimes when I turn my computer on http://puu.sh/9yLNN/e9cb915735.jpg. I unplug everything but that doesn't fix it, I just keep trying to reboot until it eventually does boot properly.
I'm running Windows 7 with an i7 2600k cpu, an AMD Radeon HD 6950 1gb GPU and 8gb of ram.
I'm really not sure what to do or how to fix this. It seems to work fine in safe mode, without any issues. And I believe it was working normally when I tried a clean boot yesterday, but now not even trying to clean boot is solving it.
I really hope someone here can help me fix this. I will try anything I can to fix this.
EDIT: I just rebooted it and it gave me a black screen saying "BOOTMGR image is corrupt. The system cannot boot" or something like that. I restarted it and it booted to some other screen with some text on it that I didn't get to read, but it seemed suss. Then it went back to showing me this http://puu.sh/9yLNN/e9cb915735.jpg and then after a few attempts it booted into Windows 7. Could this be a rootkit or something?
