  • Hi,

    It seems related to the website. Try uninstalling any software from knowledgesutra and reboot and test.

    Next, try a clean boot, where you disable all except Microsft services, reboot, observe, then enable half of the non-Microsoft services, reboot, observe and determine what is causing it by process of elimination.

    Start Windows in Clean Boot mode

    Note: You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to complete this procedure.

    1) Click Start.

    2) Copy and paste "msconfig" (without the quotation marks) in the Start Search box, and click Enter.

    3) Switch to Services tab and then Check Hide All Microsoft Services.

    4) Click Disable All.

    5) Switch to the Startup tab and then Click Disable all.

    6) Click OK.

    7) Click Restart to restart the computer and test the issue.
