    Windows 8.1 Flickering Screen

    I was having trouble running a Virtualbox virtual machine and to fix this I had to uninstall UltraUXThemePatcher. I uninstalled it and restarted my laptop and when it booted up it showed nothing the only thing that was showing was the WiFi status icon and it would show for a single second, stop, flicker, and repeat. Please Help!

    Can you get to a admin command prompt? then type:
     sfc /scannow
    actually should have been done before UltraUXThemePatcher was uninstalled.
