Thanks.... what's the status of the issue? Did you turn off hibernation?

Is your system up-to-date? Launch Windows update and check for updates even if it say your system is upto date.

Have you checked your system for malware?

Malwarebytes and ESET online are good on demand scanners - just be sure to install the free versions and always be alert during the install (many free version now bundle other things such as toolbars that you don't want or need - untick any checkboxes that offer software not directly related to what you want to install. Some also offer a trial version - you want the FREE version, not a trial)

MDO is great for offline scanning.

MSE and Avast offer good real time protection (choose one or another - don't have two real time protection apps running at teh same time. Most on demand scanners run fine with a real time app).

What is the UNREGISTERED VERSION in your image in post# 1?

If your system is up-to-date and the scans show no malware, we'll try a different tact.
