I believe the problem may be related to a recent Flash Player update which came through about the time of the MS Updates (last Tuesday).
Instead of trying the system restore, if you can confirm a Flash Player update was applied to your system around the time you started having this problem then: Uninstall Flash Player | Windows
and re-install an earlier version of it: Archived Flash Player versions
That would be quicker than restore and help isolate the problem.
Good luck, please post back you results.
And don't forget to give 'rep' to durango1 for the workaround and potential solution.
