Hi,

 

Try the following.

 

Boot the computer normally and log-in.

 

Let windows fully load for a few minutes.

 

Hold down the ctrl and alt keys and press delete.

 

Select Task Manager.

 

Click on File and select Run new task.

 

Type rstrui - also enter a tick in the box for 'Create this task with administrative privileges' - and click Ok.

 

When the system restore interface has loaded, pick a restore point at least 48 hours before this issue first occurred and then proceed with the system restore.

 

Regards,

 

DP-K
