bootrec /fixboot 
bcdboot d:\windows /s c: /f ALL
 
If successful attempt to restart to Windows.

Boot with your bootable media to the Recovery Environment Command prompt. Run this command:

 

CHKDSK d: /f

 

Let me know if anything is found on the disk, like bad sectors, clusters and so on.

That is weird. You Can't restart into Windows? If the command was not successful, you should be able to to boot as before.

Is there a Startup Repair Option when you boot into the Advanced Options?

 

If that wont help, try these commands again:

 
bootrec /fixmbr 
bootrec /fixboot 
bcdboot d:\windows /s c: /f ALL
 

If that wont help, you should take in consideration the possibility that malware is causing this issue. There are two rescue Disk scanners that I would recommend you to use:

 

Kasperski

 

Dr.Web 

 

Try all this and I will see you again tomorrow as it is kind of late in these parts of the woods. Good night.
