Why does Windows experience problems without files being obviously changed?

Windows suddenly will not boot. Comes to a cmd prompt looking screen with a header that ends in LoginUI.exe. the prompt reads: "Press Ctr+Alt+Del to continue" Sometimes I can press it, sometimes I can't. Sometimes the drive fails to boot at all. It would not backup, nor clone on Acronis. It would not copy using disk2VHD.exe.

My biggest question though is this. Why does it suddenly become unbootable, yet no file changed dates are altered outside of the user profile? View hidden files is on. How do I file OS files that may have changed to make it unbootable? Is that a possibility in Windows 10?
