I currently cannot open anything other than iTunes lately which tends to freeze up.

If I try and open ie or any folders they will show open on my tool bar and I can Hoover over them and they will appear to work but when I click on them they will not pull up. If I try to right click on item I want to open on the tool bar and select maximize still nothing opens.

I have tried running malwarebytes but it does not find anything

Any idea how to fix this?

Edit:  I forgot this is the Windows 8 forum.  I was going to ask if you can boot into Safe Mode, but because of the speed in which it open you can't boot into Safe Mode from the start.


What is the make and model of the computer?


Do you have the installation disc for this version of Windows 8?
