Please try performing a system restore to see if you can go back and resolve that issue.

Please go to

Start menu --> All programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore

Once there, please pick the option that states you want to restore back to a previous date, and go back to before that problem occurred by at least a few days (if possible), and once you’ve picked the date, go through the wizard and then your computer will be restored back to that date (which will require a restart). Let me know how it goes; thank you.

Note: Press CTRL+D to save page as a favorite so you can return to it after the restart
