There is a possiblity your computer is getting infected with some sort of Malware. So I say --- Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.

For example, back when the MSblast worm was infecting computers, Microsoft came up with fixes to plug up the hole in Windows XP.

You must reïnstall Windows and don't install Visual c++ 2003-2010 redist.

Then it works!
