    Did the problem begin more or less recently. If so, then maybe you can system restore out of it. You also could try running sfc /scannow (may need to run multiple times--say 3). If these things fail and no other simple solution turns up, then it might be time for a refresh: Refresh Windows 8.

    Refresh Your PC in Win8 in Brief—Attempts to solve system problems by replacing system files without affecting user data files. Such files still should be backed up. Installed programs will have to be reinstalled except those from the Windows Store. A list of uninstalled programs is provided on desktop. Your personalization settings will be maintained. System settings will be set to defaults. A Windows.old folder will be created at C:. You can delete it once you have everything you want from it--Windows.old Folder - Delete in Windows 8.
