Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

Does pressing your Windows key - two to the left of the spacebar - bring it up? If not, you may have been attacked by malware so restart the system and tap Function 8 before Windows starts to load. Select Safe Mode with Networking and see if the Start Menu behaves normally when you log in as Administrator. If it does, go to and downlaod the programme.

Install and update it - possibly twice - and run the full scan. When it completes, click Show Results and then Remove Selected. Restart into Normal mode and see if things are back to normal.
