3 days ago I had to leave and I pressed the shut down button from the start menu. I was waiting for the pc to close for 10 mins. I was in a hurry so I held the power button till it turned off. Today after 3 days I reopened it to find out that when I logged in the user, I clicked on chrome to open it and after some seconds the pc froze. The only way to close the pc isby holding the power button. I tried again but this time I opened the My computer icon. I could navigate normally. Then I tried to close Skype from running in the background but it froze again. I tried runnin in safe mode and everything was normal. Does this have to do with the power button?

I doubt it's the power button. I would probably reboot first in Safety Mode and run some scans.
These are some good streamlined tools that a lot of people out in the IT field use. Put these on a flash drive from another computer and set them up to your computer while it's in safe mode. Run them each one at a time, not altogether at the same time.
After that's done, turn the computer on and see if it works. If it doesn't, you may have to do a Safe Mode System restore, like the other user stated.
