Boot in safe mode go to start> run > type (msconfig) go to startup disable all... start in normal mode running fine please install any good anti virus an scan you hdd....

This can be caused by a bad sector in the hard drive. Instead of a restore, try a system repair ,then reload if the repair doesn't work. If you have the same issue, or if it has an issue during or after the repair/reload, the the hard drive is beginning to fail and needs replaced.
