  p.k.   (further information)
Im a major techie, Its a spyware Trojan-virus. It tracks keyboard input, aswell, on rare occasions, slowly corrupts one file at a time, all the way from (useless) internet explorer history files, to the BIOS. (Cant run without that.) Also, on rare occasions it will screen-capture and send to the virus maker. It can sync with the keyboard inputs, so it CAN track your passwords on websites such as your bank.

Best practices for resolving hello issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with hello. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
