Hi Terra321. Welcome to the forums.

I would recommend doing a System Restore, either in safe mode, via your computer recovery options (press F8 repeatedly while booting (just after POST) or via a System Repair disc. Choose a restore point that was created before your problem occurred. Here are a few tutorials to help:
