Welcome to CF!

When you used the computer on the 26th, did you make any changes to it? Drivers, Software, etc...? (note that I cannot view the image you uploaded as I'm at work )

Do a system restore to a date previous to the 26th and see if that resovles the issue. Then I would go through and Uninstall all the programs that you may have installed on that date. Next, just for good measure, uninstall all the crapware or programs that you do not use and then run the Registry cleaner portion of the program CCleaner. If you have any questions about a program that's installed on your machine, by all means ask.
