Try this 1.

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

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

tapping the F8 key)

2) Select "Safe Mode with Networking"

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

Registry Editor will be opened. Navigate to the following location

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

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

shell value data should be

userinit value data should be

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


Just double click shell and userinit and enter the data values as

shell --> "Value data" should be

userinit --> "Value data" should be

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

Then download "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" from the below link.

Update it and perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan"

Good Luck.
