    I'm using Windows 7 and for the last couple days I've been flooded with all sorts of "Program" has stopped working" notifications, from everything from the nvidia control panel to windows explorer to various processes that I don't even recognize that must be other ordinary windows processes. These just happen without warning, and when I restart my computer, I get about ten of them right on startup, everything is crashing and I don't know why?

    Have you scanned with Malwarebytes? It almost sounds like it could be a file infector. I hope not.

    Also, maybe run command prompt as an administrator, type "sfc /scannow" without the quotes, and let it run to fix any corrupt Windows files, and see if that helps.
