Didn't even realize you were the same person at first. I pay a lot more attention to avatars than names. But the question has not been answered. Have any changes been made since the last time it worked properly?

No changes have been made. It just started acting up.

Open an elevated command prompt (right click command prompt and choose run as admin) and type SFC /SCANNOW. It will attempt to fix any system file errors. Run as many times as necessary until it gives you a clean bill of health or it says there are errors that can't be fixed. If there are errors that can't be fixed, you will need to do a repair install.
