Hello,

Check this article SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker and see if that fixes it if not then run a Startup Repair : Startup Repair

If none of that works try going into
HKey_Local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\policies\run

and see if there is any spyware in there.

That's what I found using Google and TomsHardware
