go to start up menu

go to Run

type    sfc /scannow

if it asks put the o/s dvd ... let it complete the scan

it'll automatically fix the errors if any happen to o/s

all the best

You also should scan for viruses and malware as this may be what caused the problem. Run your own anti virus application and do a thorough scan. When that is complete, scan with Malwarebytes (malwarebytes.org). Do both, restart and test.

You may need to do a Windows Repair Install. Do this from the Windows 7 DVD or try from the Recovery Partition on your computer. Be certain to back up the computer first.  Here is a Seven Forums. tutorial for Windows 7 Repair Install.

Why not try a system restore

start--> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System restore.

Note: Doing this step would put you back to an older configuration, that means that programs and windows updates that were installed since that date will be gone. BUT any data will stay intact.
