During certain times my Charms bar won't swipe via mouse, the left side's app viewer won't appear, and I cannot click on the start button. This happens frequently and I do not know what is going on.

Not a problem

Do you have a security program installed [antivirus] and is it current? Have you run a scan with that program?

I've seen that comportment several times and never found out why, but it was always curable with a reboot.

If that's not the case for you, then you'd have to look for something fundamentally wrong with your OS (I presume you're on Windows 8.1, correct?).

You could try opening a command box with admin rights and paste in the following.

sfc /scannow

The job may take half an hour.

To be sure that we're clear, if a reboot does fix the problem, then there's little reason to do the scannow job, as it's just a glitch that we see in Win 8 systems.

Of course, that's just my opinion.


All is well in Paradise.

Rebooting always works.
