This is typically caused when the system is infected with a virus or has a rootkit installed.
See Microsoft's recommendations, which after saving your personal files, requires a complete disk wipe and installation of a fresh copy of Windows. A repair install WILL NOT fix the problem.
Before re-installing your personal files (which might be infected), be sure to install an up-to-date Anti-virus package to prevent a re-infection.
