This looks more like a system file corruption or Virus attack.
for system corruption, you can either try Windows repair.

For Virus Attack, I would recommend a Windows reinstall.

It may well be caused by a Malware infection.
Recommend downloading & updating Malwarebytes anti-Malware, from here:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Click Finish then MBAM will automatically start.
Tutorial available, if you require >

If you cannot run mbam, try downloading a new mbam and rename it *before* saving it to your desktop, then try again.

If unsuccessful try Hitman Pro 3, a Second Opinion Malware Scanner:

Just for the record, even though a System appears clean you can still have an infection such as a rootkit, & this can be difficult to detect.  
However, as you seem fairly convinced that your machine is uninfected, i would recommend a repair install, and here is a good article by Michael Stevens, a past Microsoft MVP.  
Please read whole article carefully before starting, & good luck:

Alternatively if you should later decide upon a clean install, this article will help>
