I recently updated to windows 8.1on my pavilion laptop (was forced to actualy) and since am having a lot of problems. The one that's driving me nuts currently is that my volume buttons and other function buttons are intermitantly not working. any advice would be much apreciated.

 Try running SFC.  From the Search charm type CMD, then right-click CMD.EXE and click Run as administrator.  From the command prompt type sfc /scannow.  If that doesn't fix it, download, install, and get Malwarebytes up to date, then do a scan with it.

 

Good luck.

Thanks wpgwpg, I am running sfc now.    I have already run Malwarebytes and it found some stuff.  That is another thing. before I upgraded, I rarely found problems when I scanned with malwarebytes. Now it finds multiple problems every time I scan.

I ran sfc. It said it found corrupt files but was not able to fix some of them.  Not sure what to do next.

 SFC creates a log that will tell what the files are that it can't fix.  It's in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.  Copy CBS.log to a different folder, then double-click to open it, then copy and paste it into a reply here.
