    Windows cannot find %SystemRoot% \System32\ ...

    Hi Guys,

    I use Windows 8 and I've got a problem with running typical system control application. For example, I go to the "C:\Windows\System32" and try to run SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe, but after double click I see the error window with message "Windows cannot find file "C:/Windows/System32/systempropertiesadvanced.exe". Does anybody know how to solve this problem?
