Recently I have not been able to open mail, pdf, calendar apps.  When I click on one of them they look like they are going to open and flash and close. 


Not sure if I should reinstall windows 8.1 or is there a fix for this???

 What are you using for email?  Are you running those buggy Metro (aka Modern) apps?  I use Windows Live Mail in desktop mode.  Thunderbird and Outlook (from MS Office) work in desktop mode too.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
