Bug Description

I tried to install mscorefonts,they were already installed,but they didnt worked,so i unistalled them,and deleted.
Then i downloaded and installed them,so i can play a game(League Of Legends).
After the installation it said installed succesful(something like that),i heared,when you update Lol(league of legends),that ur PC will crash a lot of times,tried fiew times,crashed,so i said i will start tommorow.
Today,i started my PC,and it wasnt starting like it usually did,it was powering,then it stoped,i just saw the color of my desktop,i didnt had to log in(But i couldnt do anything,just look at home screen,the color,no icons and stuff)
