Perhaps this problem is manifested because of the third-party theme you have installed and enabled. Revert to the default theme and see if the problem persists.

Hello Cr7NeTwOrK,

You might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened may be able to fix it for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
