    Sounds like something messed up your Windows Registry.

    Your easiest option would be to do a Windows System Restore. Note that this just rolls back recent changes to Windows, and doesn’t impact your existing documents, photos, etc.

    Go to Start> All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.

    Be sure to read the instructions and description of what it does. You should get a short like of dates, select most recent one from before your problem started.
