    Hello

    Do the following and check:

    Step 1:

    Try to do a Scan of the SFC (System File Checker). The scan will look bad system files and will attempt to fix them, if possible.

    (a) click the Start button.
    (b) type: cmd.exe in the search results.
    (c) right click the cmd.exe file and select 'run as administrator '.
    (d) in the CMD window, type: sfc/scannow and press the Enter key.
    (e) restart and see if that solves the problem.

    How to use the System File Checker tool to fix the system files missing or corrupted on Windows Vista or Windows 7

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/929833

    Step 2:

    If the problem persists, you can also scan your computer the Microsoft Security Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware and other malicious software.

    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.

    http://www.Microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Note: The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.
