  1. I've been having these problems for maybe 3 days. First thing was it took longer for my computer to boot up now whenever I finally able to logg in either my icons on my desktop disappear with my start menu and the appearance of my start menu and other stuff from computer look like they are in safe mode is there anything I can do to fix my computer. I can't back up my computer to a time where it was working perfectly can anyone help me?

    Even if you wait for a few minutes? Did you try booting into safe mode?

    I would go into the quarantine section of Malwarebytes and press "Delete All". Then reboot and see if this helped you.
    This is what I am talking about:[​IMG]
