    Everything crashes. Everything.


    I am new to forums in general, so I ask you bear with me.

    (Windows 8 x64, AMD A6-4400 APU with Radeon HD [7520g] graphics, 2.7GHz)

    I have done nothing out of the ordinary to my PC. I was listening to music through Zune when I noticed the songs skipping like they were on a dirty CD. I went on YouTube and videos had the same issue, but only when that tab wasn't the active one. This was pretty much out of nowhere. The only thing I had done that day prior was run a game. It was a little choppy, but that is pretty much normal from my experiences with this machine. It was a little worse this time to so I decided to just restart my PC. Big mistake. Now every single thing I open that isn't either a web browser or a preloaded program like Paint immediately crashes. Steam, Zune, Origin, Camtasia, Google Earth, Skype, RGB, etc etc etc give me the "X has stopped working" popup within a minute of trying to run it.

    I don't need to explain why this is frustrating and, to me, catastrophic. If anyone has any solution or anything I could try, I would appreciate it very, very much.

    EDIT: I also have been unable to run Windows Update. It will check for updates, tell me I have some to download, but when I try, it just sits there. The progress bar does not move at all.

    Hello Cyan and welcome to the forum.

    First, is this a laptop or desktop, if a desktop is this a retail PC or a custom build? If a retail PC (desktop or laptop) what is the exact make and model number? Could you please list your system specs with as much detail as you can?

    Have you tried to refresh you PC? I would start with this first.
