Windows 10 crashing on startup
I'm not very tech-savvy so I'm not sure I'll get all the terms right. But bear with me
I'm using Windows 10 on a Lenovo IdeaPad Z560 laptop. Yesterday I started having trouble with my operating system. I can turn on my computer and log in (write my password and go to the desktop), but when I reach the desktop, it starts blacking out and relaunching. All my program icons appear, but items on the taskbar are missing
I tried activating in safe mode but the persists. I went to the security options (Ctrl+Alt+Delete from the desktop, then clicking on restart while Shift is pressed). I tried reinstalling Windows but it encountered an unspecified error. It couldn't find any restore points or older versions of Build to scale back to. I have no idea what to do
I should note 2 things that might be important. First, a few days ago start menu stopped working. I tried following some instructions I found on various sites (mostly using command prompt and PowerShell) but nothing really happened. But maybe it affected my computer somehow
Second, my battery is pretty old and runs out of power quite fast. I have a new one which curiously loses power even quicker. I tried switching between them a few times (after turning off my computer), and I think the older battery is even weaker now. So it might have also messed up my computer
I have a screenshot of my desktop and a video of it crashing, but I don't know how to upload them. I'm writing from my phone (Nexus 5 if that matters), and the only options I see are uploading from URLs
I hope I gave you all the information you need, and reeeeeeally hope you can help me find a solution to this problem. If this has already been asked and fixed on another thread, I'd be thankful if you can direct me to that thread. I searched here but couldn't find nothing
Thanks in advance for whatever you can offer me

OK, uploaded my screenshot, hope you can see it. My operating system is in Hebrew, but I think you can still see the problem. Look at the taskbar specifically
I also uploaded my clip. Should be fine

Boot in Clean Boot State and see if the problem continues. If not, then identify the offending process and isolate it.
Can you get to Advanced Startup options? Then too you could get to Safe Mode to disable all startup programs.
See if you can then system restore your computer back to a good point.
