Could be a virus. Run an online scan first:

Then run a full scan with whatever antivirus you use.

You could run MalwareBytes freebie on it too, just to be sure:

Or it could be faulty memory. If MalawareBytes shows nothing do a memory check.

Download the image and burn it to a CD. Boot from the CD and run it.

I agree with #3 - there are many possible causes. Worth getting the virus idea out of the way so we can then concentrate on other things.
