Hey guys. I went to bed with a perfectly working computer and woke up to turn on my computer, only to find some error. It says:

"explorer.exe - Unable To Locate Component"

"This application has failed to start because POWRPROF.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

The thing that's got me thinking that this is a virus is that I'm able to run firefox and MBAM through Task Manager. My only problem is that it's giving me this error and I can't see my background or any of my programs and have to run them through Task Manager.
