Do clean boot..looks like something in  startup is creating this issue.

Clean boot process

Start-type - msconfig- click on startup tab- click disable all...then click services tab- put a check on hide all microsoft services ...and then click disable all....click ok and then restart the computer in normal mode.

If everything works fine in clean boot then enable five startup items and services at a time to find the faulty software.

Dear Ded9,

I disabled everthing in the startup tab, and all in the services tab apart from microsoft services, and then restarted the computer.

However, the same problem persists....

Dear Ded9, It is a good idea if I would give you my teamviewer User / Pass, so that you can reach my computer and have a look at it, please?

Looks like your o.s and server profile are  corrupted.

Issue coming back on every reboot indicates the server profile  and local profile are corrupted. Make sure the server profile is recreated or thrashed before you login. Reinstall windows first and then login.

Extended error might be caused by network drives.
