    I got corrupted system files

    I hope I got this posted in the right place and hope I got the right title. I started off with the SoftwareBundler:win32/WinOptimizer virus today and after getting that fixed/removed I found out I had some other issues going on so I found a site for trouble shooting windows and I tried to do a system file check through their instructions and found out I have some corrupted files. When I tried to fix the problem [following their instructions all I kept getting was access denied on all files and their instructions suggested I reset the permission by activating windows again.

    Does that mean I have to reactavate the windows product key? if it does then I tried it and it will not let me do it.
    Sorry I am not very much of a techie person. All I know is I am on windows 8.1...64bit

    Rather than trying a 3rd party site I would run sfc as described in this tutorial:
    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    Edit: I would do Option Two first. It is simpler than at boot and may tell you the system files are OK.
