Welcome,

There may be several other answers depending on what's happening. A few questions about what we're working with here. Operating System?, is it current? Computer, make and model, installed RAM, HDD size and % free space. Any security software installed? Is that up to date? What scans have been run? Just the basics, so we can get a picture of things.

Thanks

 There're things you can do including running SFC, Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, Junkware Removal Tool, TDSSkiller, and doing a full system scan with your antivirus.  

  To further diagnose the problem Please download and run Speccy.  After running it click File -> Publish snapshot... Copy and paste the link it gives you into your next post.

 Then download minitoolbox and run it with the following boxes checked:

 
List last 10 Event Viewer Errors
 
List Installed Programs
 
List Users, Partitions, and Memory size
 
List Minidump files
 
Copy the resulting log and paste into a reply here.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
