Welcome to our forum.

Help Please is not much of a thread title.

Try using this tutorial by Brink to restore your computer to a time when this problem wasn't there.

I'd also download, install (declining Trial) and run a full scan with Malwarebytes
and SUPERAntiSpyware - Downloads .

Then check if any System files are damaged by running SFC /SCANNOW Command.

If this isn't sufficient, then work through the other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 to go over your install thoroughly and often uncover problems.
