You might try: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/windows-repair-all-in-one/


When Windows Repair opens, click the Start Repairs tab. Click Start. Uncheck all the boxes except for the following four:
- Reset Registry Permissions
- Reset File Permissions
- Repair WMI
- Repair Windows Firewall
Then click Start. Once it's finished, restart your computer. Let us know if that helps you.
