Suggestions only :

1. Install and run Malwarebytes. It is to catch any infection. It is one of the best in the business.
Download link : It is free
Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (free)

2. Run a system file check. It is to look for corrupt files and try to repair them if any found.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

3. Run a disk check ( chkdsk /f/r ). It is to find and repair any file system errors and bad sectors.
