There are many possible reasons but the first step is to run your AV and check for viruses. Also download MalwareBytes freebie because this can find and fix nasties that AV's miss.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Do first Malwarebytes and then your Antivirus (updated) in Safe Mode with Networking.
Then update your drivers.
Then run msconfig, go to Start Tab, and uncheck all except Microsoft and your antivirus program. Apply and Restart in Normal mode.
Uninstall any program you never use.
Run Disk Clean up. (repeat monthly)
Clean out your browsers History, Cookies, Temp Internet Files, etc. (repeat weekly)

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