Answers :

The cause of this is because the devices connected from your machine was not been remove properly.

boot up your machine and hit F8 to boot into safe mode. if it doesn't work you need to reformat your OS because I suspected it has been corrupted. Before doing so, back up all your files because everything will be wiped out and will load to default factory settings.

you can use your hard disk as an external drive connected to other machine so you could back up all your files.
