Sounds like it's in a bad way and you may have to re-install Windows or use Factory Recovery. Back up all your user files before doing either of those.

The factory recovery is a great way to fix everything. It will delete all your current data.

You may try a recovery point to a time when it worked also.

You never want to be logged on as an administrator. Make everyone use a standard user account. When you need to do admin tasks then use runas. Admin has to have a strong password. Choose a phrase that you can remember with a tip. Like tip of Uncle Bob lives in what city? Your password might be Westchester.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
