I checked in the event viewer and there are a lot of instances of Event ID 1017 and Event ID 8211. In fact there are 3 of 1017 together with 1 of 8211. This is a group of 4 and that group appears repeatedly!!!
event id 8211 is volume shadow copy failing because a service isnt running. Were you having problems backing up?. Event ID 1017 is also service related and Im wondering if some services might have been turned off either on purpose or by accident
Best bet is to run sfc/scannow to check the sytem files, try a restore for earlier. If that doesnt work, a repair install..
lastly If it was mine I would do a clean install.
Hope this helps
