Hello and welcome Danny by no downloading does that include no browser as well?

Mate some system specs would be good and do you have any security programs at all?

Try these from safe mode

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

and
Disk Check for starters to get safe mode in case you are not familiar with this is shut down power back on and tap F8 select safe mode and go from there.

Is there any way you can download MalwareBytes (Free Version) on another computer, copy to a USB flash drive & then install it on this computer. You may have some Malware, spyware and viruses on your computer.


Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download

So I assume you have done a full virus scan? The easy way out is if you don't really care about your files then just wipe your hard drive or if you had a time where you could download things then restore to that time
