Somehow, I have been locked out of functions in control panel. When I try to click on many of the tools, it tells me this app can't run on your pc. I have used several (adaware, malwarebytes, Microsoft) anti-virus tools in safe mode, but each reports no problems. I tried to restore (I know, I probably shouldn't have), but all I managed to do was lose Google Chrome. Most install exes I can't run, because I get the same message, about can't run apps. Can anyone here help? Thanks,
ps My operating system is windows 8.
