Reboot your PC and immediately keep tapping F8 until the "Advanced Boot Options" screen appears. Use up/down arrow keys to highlight "Last Known Good Configuration", then press <Enter>.

If that does not work, repeat F8 but choose Safe Mode. In Safe Mode do a System Restore to a date well before you began noticing any minor problems (even small peculiar happenings), use "show more restore points" if needed. When it reboots, go back into Safe Mode with Networking and run Malwarebytes full scan, remove all it finds. Then update and run your antivirus program and remove all it finds. If one or both finds and removes things, rerun Malwarebytes to be sure you are clean. Reboot normal.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
