Welcome to SF arunkg!
You won't like this, but Uninstall McAfee and install MSE, link below my signature. McAfee has a bad record with w7 and causing various issues.

Also find the link there for Malware Bytes and install it, do an update and run a full scan with it and MSE.
Sounds like you may have caught something.

You can use another PC and save both to a flash drive.

MCAFEE posted a faulty DAT-file last weekend. Maybe that's the cause of problem?
