I think you have to perform a system restore on your laptop. For restoring your system files and setting you can follow the below given steps:
--Click to start button and open system restore, you?ll see a search box, type a system restore in the search box, and then in the search result, click system restore. You?ll be asked for a password, provide the password and confirmed it
-- click recommended restore and click next, choose a specific restore point from the below steps.
-- Review the restore point, and then click Finish.

there may be virus behind this, check for virus by scanning your system with antivirus software. Some virus make this kind of problem, there are viruses which make duplication also. Install a good antivirus software and scan your system. if you found any virus then remove that virus from the list. If you don?t found any virus then it may be some other problem, you have to diagnose that problem. I think you have to restore your system file. there are different methods for doing this you can follow any of that. Sear4ch on internet about this you?ll get the solution.
