Hello, I recently started experiencing issues with my computer. It would randomly but rarely minimize all windows, and sometimes close them. However, recently it escalated. So far, in fact, that I don't have a task bar or background anymore, I do not know what to do, and I have tried everything i could think of. I scanned for malware, and I tried to reinstall windows, but it didn't let me open the settings menu. I tried to uninstall all of my software, but it didn't let me do that either! I have been sitting here watching my PC slowly die while trying to figure out what is wrong, but I found nothing wrong! I came here because it no longer boots correctly and just displays absolutely nothing but the few programs that act as if nothing happened.
I realized history would help.
It all started when i noticed my firewalls where randomly down. I said "that's no big issue, i can just turn them back on!", but neither of them turned on (i had 2 at the time). I installed 3 more at the time, then instantly noticed my dumb decision and uninstalled 2 of them. Then, I tried to get cortana to work. It didn't work, so i waited a few days, and eventually it did work. Next thing that happened is that no settings menus would open (i think it was bitdefender that i kept for the antivirus), a long freeze, then a reboot. Then it booted up to the login screen and i logged in. It then loaded me onto a blank screen.
The way I opened chrome is by using advanced system care, clicking on the "buy now" button which opens your default web browser.
I do not know my exact parts, and don't know if you would need them, just ask if you do.
