I have an HP Envy dv7 laptop computer. It has been upgraded to 8.1. My problem is that I am having trouble opening programs. If I click on a program the screen flashes, and I the mouse pointer changes to busy for a second but the program doesn't open. It does however start the background process. I've tried downloading a couple of the programs listed under downloads, but none of those will start either.

Have you done any testing? Like running sfc /scannow from the command prompt as the administrator. Or possibly an anti virus or anti malware scanner?

Keep us posted
