    Run a System Restore. It might work. It's the easiest 1st response.

    Might be something (likely for a rootkit) installed as a "driver" in that case you're probably better off formatting the whole thing from the sound of it because even if there are ways to check for hints, it's a often a tricky and painfully meticulous process. HTH.
