Hi everyone,


I'm looking for a little help if possible. If I am in the wrong area, please let me know.


A couple of days ago, I started to get an error when I opened an adobe file. Chkdsk was recommended to fix it. I waited a couple of days to fix it due to time.


Then yesterday, I started to have a couple of other error messages pop up but my computer worked fine. By the end of the day, I had more error messages labeled "the application was unable to start correctly (0xc0150004)" and I started having issues with applications. The error messages were for:







I ran Chkdsk and nothing came up. I did a scan in cmd and the scan showed that there were some corrupt files, but they were not repaired. I opened the cbs log and that is where I found a bunch of "cannot verify component files, manifest is damaged (FALSE)."


My Windows is a mess. I cannot open certain applications like Dropbox. I'm getting error messages for PowerPoint. Half my icons in my toolbar are gone. The troubleshooter won't open. I downloaded some Microsoft tools but when I click on them to open nothing happens. I can't get into Action Center. When I click on the flag or go to System and Security, when I click on it, nothing happens. The message in Action Center says "troubleshoot a problem with your computer's harddisk."


I'm not sure what I need to show, but does anyone have suggestions? Is this soley a hardware issue or could it be virus related? I am pretty conservative on the net to try to avoid viruses, but you never know. I have run malwarebytes - one of the few programs or applications I can open - and it hasn't found any malware.


I'm a little frazzled over the whole thing.
