Hello Vprabh, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you post another screenshot of this? The one you posted previously did not work.

I'm not sure if this is malware or not, but it would be a good idea to scan your system with the free Malwarebytes and Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to help be safe.

Afterwards, you might see if running a sfc /scannow command may be able to help if it's a corrupted system file causing this.

If not, then you might consider doing a system restore using a restore point dated before you had this issue.

Hi Thanks a lot for you help, I tried system restore but unfortunately It says it cannot restore no matter which point i try because it says it cannot extract some movie file which it may have backed up. (I deleted the file once I watched that movie) I use lenovo y550 so I do not have a manufacturers cd. (it seems lenovo users should have created a back up disc recently after purchasing it damn it I was not aware of it). What other options do you suggest??
