have you tried starting in safe mode. You can do that by following method.

restart the machine and press F8 and you will see option one of it will be safe mode. Try booting it in safe mode, if it does then you can run some checks to see whether there is any issue with normal mode.

has anything been recently installed if so then you can delete it in safe mode to revert back the settings.

hope this helps

Does the EE article by rpggamergirl get you anywhere?

You may need to download NCRFix.reg, RogueKiller and MalwareBytes AntiMalware onto a USB stick using another computer.

disconnect computer from network to test if it is some network access permission change. scan for viruses and malware to see if there is a takeover trying to happen. check what starts when the computer starts up and/or the user logs in. Use sysinternals autoruns.exe or msconfig to try to eliminate unneeded items. try logging in as a different user to see if the same problems occur. see if there are any windows or hard drive corruption, chkdsk c: /V /r and sfc /scannow. check your system logs for any issues.
