Hopefully this will fix the problem. You need to do this offline with a linux disk as it cannot be done in Windows. The first thing to check is the date of the hives in the following directory. C:\Windows\System32\config\regback. The hives must be dated before the date of your problem.
Download Parted Magic here. Burn the iso file to a CD on a Windows 7 or later computer by right clicking and selecting Burn Disk Image. You will need to disable SecureBoot in your UEFI settings and enable Legacy or CSM boot. Your computer may have a boot menu accessed at boot by tapping a key to select the boot device, in your case the optical drive.
At the Parted Magic Desktop you should mount your devices per this guide( see second image ). Browse to the regback folder to confirm if the date on the hives in regback is before the date in the config folder. If it is rename the following hives in config
SAM to SAM.bak
SOFTWARE to SOFTWARE.bak
DEFAULT to DEFAULT.bak
SECURITY to SECURITY.bak
SYSTEM to SYSTEM.bak
Copy the above hives from regbak to config. Exit out of PartedMagic and reboot.
