You have 'Windows Update' set to auto install.
A few days ago there was a bundle of updates.
One of the updates 'hosed' your machine.
Why?.......I dunno.

Until you get this sorted it might be best to turn off that auto install......otherwise it's coming back.

Backup.
At a minimum copy 'your stuff' to optical........two copies would be nice.
Look into an 'Image' or a 'clone'......gets everything.
Then there's that 'cloud' stuff.......I'll let others comment about how well that works.
