Hello,

Try this 1.

1) When you switch ON your laptop, start tapping the "F8" key to get

"Advanced Boot Options" ( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and keep

tapping the F8 key)

2) Select the option "Safe Mode with Networking".

3) Click on Start --> In search box,type regedt32 and press "Enter".

Registry Editor will be opened and then navigate to the location

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

\Winlogo

At the right side, find the strings shell & userinit and check the following

shell value data should be
Explorer.exe

userinit value data should be
C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,

If shell and userinit are having different data values then change it as mentioned

above then just double click shell and userinit and enter the data values as

shell value data should be
Explorer.exe

userinit value data should b
C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,

Note: there is "," at the end of userinit.exe

3)Download "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" from the below link.

https://ccm.net/download/download-105-malwarebytes

Update it and perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.
