    Here`s a method you can try to resolve your problem which needs a deep inlook into the Operating System.

    Follow the process as described.

    Press "Windows Key + R" from the keyboard.
    In the "Run" window, type "MSCONFIG",click "Ok".

    Click "Boot" and uncheck "Safe Boot".

    On "General" tab, click select option "Selective startup", and click to clear option "Load startup items" check box.

    On "Services" tab, click select "Hide all Microsoft services" check box, click "Disable all".

    On "Startup" tab, click "Open Task Manager". In the "Task Manager" , right click on each startup item those are enabled and manually select "Disable".

    Click "OK", Restart.

    After finishing troubleshooting, follow the steps to boot in normal startup mode.

    Press "Windows Key+ R" on the keyboard.

    In "Run" window, type "MSCONFIG" , click "Ok".

    On "General" tab, click "Normal Startup" , click "OK".
