Hi Oberion :)

If you configure a clean boot, then restart your computer, are you able to download files and launch programs freely?

If you boot in Safe Mode with Networking, are you able to download files and launch programs? Instructions on how to proceed can be found in the link below.

Do you mean "CCleaner"? If so, did you use the Registry Cleaner function?

Hello,

Please try Start Windows 8 in safe mode and select Safe Mode With Networking, ..........

 

Or - Go to an Elevated Command Prompt in Windows 8 , type sfc /scannow and press enter. That will invoke the system file checker.

The SFC Command will inspect all of the system files and replace any that it deems to be corrupt or otherwise damaged with a fresh copy.

 

Tell us what happens when you try this -

 

Thank You ..

Can you answer my questions in post #8 please? Also, did you run the SFC command under a normal boot, or Safe Mode boot?

Is this for Microsoft Office? Then that must be uninstalled, and may be installed later....

 

Delete all temp files - not with CCleaner, but use this method in Normal Mode.

 

Start > Type “%temp%” in the start / search box

Press Enter

Wait for files to load then delete all files

Now just type  “temp” in the search field of the start menu

Press Enter

In the box that comes up (System Properties) click Advanced Tab and then Environment Variables

Under "User Variables" for (your name). click on any that show up (Wait for files to load) and then click Delete

 

 

If you receive the message, do you see a small window with  lsass.exe - Operation Failed

The requested operation was unsuccessful

 

Reboot your computer.  At the manufacturer's logo start tapping F8.  Select Safe Mode with Networking. 

Download the following tool and run a full scan to ensure you've not been infected with malware.  http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=16

 

As a precaution I also advise you to disable system restore because malware is known to hide in restore points.

Disable system restore >>   http://support.microsoft.com/kb/264887

 

When finished, reboot into Windows. 

Retry running System File Checker ( sfc /scannow ) as advised.  Note the space between c and / as it must be there to work correctly.

 

When finished, re-enable system restore.

When you open the elevated command prompt (command prompt with Admin Rights) to enter the sfc /scannow command, where is the command prompt pointing at? Normally, it should point at C:\WINDOWS\system32>.
