1. Since when are you facing this issue?
2. Have you done any recent changes on the computer?

Method 2:
If you do not face the issue in safe mode then you may check in a clean boot state.To perform the clean boot follow the step 1 mentioned in the below article and then try checking in this clean boot state -


If the issue gets resolved check which non-Microsoft service is causing the problem; referring to the article and following other steps.

 After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

a.    Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

b.    On the General tab, click the Normal Startup option, and then click OK.

c.    When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.

Method 3:
You may perform a SFC (System File Checker) scan. It will list any issues and will also recover any files if needed.
Follow the below steps to p
erform a SFC Scan -

b. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
sfc /scannow 
A message will appear stating that 'The system scan will begin'. Be patient because the scan may take some time.
c. If any files require a replace SFC will replace them. You may be asked to insert your Win 7 DVD for this process to continue.
d. If everything is okay you should, after the scan, see the following message "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".
