    Installed Programs Deleted from Cnt Panel-Rstr didn't work

    I have had a lot of Windows issues before, but this one is just bizarre, and I don't know how to fix it.
    All of a sudden the majority of my programs are not showing up in the control panel tab. I rebooted...tried to do a system restore, but for some reason when it reboots it said that had failed.

    It's not a big deal right now. I don't usually install many programs, but I am not sure what to do here.
    Is there any way to fix this? Any assistance would be appreciated.

    windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64bit

    Are the program icons still appearing on the Desktop or Start Screen.

    Run a full antivirus scan and download and run Malwarebytes (Free)

    In the elevated command prompt run sfc /scannow
