Hello,
Try this 1
Check if you are able to boot into the safe mode.
When you switch ON your PC, start tapping the "F8" key to get "Startup Settings" options ( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and keep tapping the F8 key)
Select the option "Safe Mode".
Also let us know the operating system you are using.
Good Luck
