Tap the F8 key as soon as the PC starts to boot up.
From the Advanced Startup Options choose "last known good configuration" and press <Enter>.

If that doesn't work, reboot and keep tapping F8 again, but this time choose "Safe Mode" and press <Enter>. When in Windows safe mode, use System Restore to turn the system back to a date when it was working okay.
