its my first post not really good with english yet. my app usually runs perfectly but it got force closed and when  i try opening em again  its only shows "this app can't run on your pc" and the icon change to default, this happens one by one so far it reach to 5 apps most of the them are games. my first thought it is a virus and i tried scan and clean them using smadav but had no effect at all i tried search on the internet but i can hardly understand what going on, i don't know if its a virus or my anti-virus is broken or something so i was left clueless and don't know what to do...
im not a pro pc user and i can't really understand sophisticated word so go eazy on me

First of all - welcome to BC !


The first thing I would try would be a 'System restore'. Hold the 'Win' key and press 'X' (Win +X). From the menu that appears click 'Control panel'. When the control panel opens, in the top right corner you will see a button 'View by'. Make sure this is set to 'Small icons' then click on 'Recovery' then on 'Open system restore'. When it starts it will show you the latest restore points, select one that dates from before your problem started. If there isn't one then click on the button 'Show more restore points'. Then start the restore.


Once the restore starts leave the computer strictly alone until the process is finished then, if it doesn't do it automatically, re-boot and see if the problem is solved. If it isn't, you may have to consider re-installing these applications.

  1. Open Command Prompt with administrator privileges (as shown previously)
  2. Type sfc /scannow

Is this Windows 8 or Windows 8.1?


Have you tried running these programs in Compatibility mode?
