Hello,

As you did not provide a whole lot of information, I have a few things to suggest.
1). Try to boot into safe mode (F8 at boot usually) and run widows system restore to a working date,
2). Download a live cd for cleaning threats such as spyware or virus' check google for some.
3). Download a live diagnostics cd to check ram, hdd, gfx for problems. Check google.
4). Backup data with a live cd and restore windows, when you configure it, make a backup weekly :)

Andrew888... Welcome to Geeks to Go. Lets see if I can help you.

A system recovery will take you back to the day you bought the computer. You will lose all of your data, emails, pictures, etc.
The first step is to try F8 to get in to safe mode. Reboot the computer and then start tapping F8. You will come to a screen that gives you a few choices. First try "last known good configuration". If that does not work, then try safe mode. This will be an odd screen. If successful, you will see the words safe mode in all 4 corners and the monitor resolution will be out of wack. Do not be alarmed, it is normal for safe mode.

This will pretty much tell us that you might have a driver issue because this loads defaults.

Also, can you give us the make and model of the computer to start with?
