File manager will no longer launch/load.  It will start to load, flash and then do nothing. I am running windows 8.1, and have all windows updates through 3/28/15.  I have not loaded any new software.  This problem started on 3/24/15. I tried to run SFC/Scan now but am unable to run as administrator.  ANy suggestions are appreciated.

do you have system restore enabled and a restore point before this happened?

Might also want to open a CMD prompt and run sfc /scannow to see of your system is intact.

There is another utility along the same lines as sfc (which stands for system file checker), called DISM. Here is a tutorial for running that http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/26512-dism-fixing-component-store-corruption-windows-8-a.html

I am not quite sure when you should use sfc vs. use DISM, since they both seem to do roughly the same thing. Maybe just do both.
