Run Malwarebytes to make sure you do not have an infection. Then do a system restore to a date before you began having problems. You files will be safe, but you might loose SP1, other updates or other programs installed after the date you choose for your restore. Once everything is running right, back up these files and try your SP1 or updates again. If you identify the problem as one of the updates, restore again or uninstall the update and mark the update to not install in a manual windows update.

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