Welcome to Sevenforums!

I'd say the first place to start would be a System Restore.

Make sure you go back before the problem started.
System Restore

Run sfc /scannow. Run it 3 times, if it finds problems.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Update your Anit-Virus protection, then run a scan, fix anything it finds.

Download Malwarebytes, update, scan and fix anything it finds.

Download CCleaner, keep running the registry cleaner until it doesn't find any more.

You may want to wait on reinstalling the game until we make sure your computer is running better.

Afterwards, let me know how your computer is running.

Click here to download the required zip file::

http://www.dll-files.com/binkw32.zip?0WFgTCVHmP

Extract binkw32.dll from binkw32.zip. Extract binkw32.dll to the installation directory of the program that is requesting binkw32.dll.
If that doesn't work, you will have to extract binkw32.dll to your system directory. By default, this is:

C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP, Vista, 7)

In some games, the binkw32.dll file is placed in the wrong directory when the game is installed.

For example, if your game is installed in C:\Program Files\Game, copy the binkw32.dll file from C:\Program Files\Game\System folder to the game's root folder at C:\Program Files\Game.

If above process didn't work then try this::

Open Windows Start menu and select Run
Type CMD and press Enter
Type regsvr32 binkw32.dll and press Enter.
