So the quick launch icon has turned into a blank on my taskbar. When I try to access Hyper V it comes up saying the .EXE does not exist. I cant even access Hyper V manager without having to open up the MMC snap in and then I have to save its state to pick up where I left off. What caused this to even happen? I ran all my scans and nothing came up still, so I just re imaged my computer.

To me this has every tell-tale sign of being a corrupted file. Sounds like you're back up and running with a re-image though eh?


I'd guess either your windows icon database got corrupted (which can be fixed with a reset of it) or some other essential registry chunk got screwy or both. I'd be curious to see how old your hdd was too. The older they get, the quicker weird things happen - like suddenly corrupted files.


Of course, I'm a bit of an "old school" expert. My detective work might be out of date now for all I know.

Go to Programs and Features in the Control Panel and uninstall the Hyper V.  Download it and install it.


Please run sfc /scannow
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
To open the Command Prompt press the Windows keywindowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the X key at the same time.   A menu will open with the option Command Prompt (Admin), click/tap on this.
You will see a window similar to the one below.
When the Elevated Command Prompt opens copy and paste in sfc /scannow, then press Enter.
This will take a while,  have patience and allow it finish.  Stopping this scan could damage files.  
When the scan is finished please post the log of this scan.
To find sfc /scannow log, reopen the Elevated Command Prompt using the Windows key windowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the X key method outlined in the instructions above. 
When the Elevated Command Prompt opens copy and paste the following in the Command Prompt, then press Enter.  
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
This will place a new icon on the desktop titled sfcdetails.  Click/tap on this to open the log, copy and paste it in your topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
