Had a bad storm last night, so I shut down the comp. Restarted this a.m. tried to stream the Arsenal match and mozilla would crash every time I tried to leave the home page. Went to IE, watched the match, and then began to TS moz.
After a bit I decided to unistall. Upon trying to reinstall i get a corrupt file error msg during extraction. I then tried to d.l. Chrome and had problems w. that too. Yet amazingly enough, IE works fine. :angry: Is this Microsoft just f'in w. me 'cause I'm not amused?
I also notice that in my start menu I have no quick select icons for network connections, control panel, etc. any help would be great. thx.

Hello and :welcome: to bleeping computer!

I'm guessing by the topic title that you ran a windows update before shut down? Did it install before you shut the machine down? Also do you have any virus/ malware protection installed?
If I have replied to a topic and you reply and I haven't gotten back to you within 48 hours (2 days) then send me a P.M.

Crashing Installs, Missing Icons...

Do you have running Antivirus? If so Scan.
If not report back for suggestions.

Can you download and install and update either Malwarebytes antimalware free

or Super Antispyware Free http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html

Whether they install and update normally or not please report back.

Good Luck
