id do a scan for virus or spyware, try booting into safe mode if you cant do anything in normal mode.

so your pc was working fine not long ago, did you install any software? alter any settings on your pc?

run checkdisk on your hard drive or drives. Then download memtest and run that for a few hours, and prime95.
