    Unable to install or unistall any program

    I recently installed Windows 8 Pro x64 on my Dell inspiron 3520. Just a few weeks down the line i noticed i was not able to access the control panel or any of the system properties. I can't even unistall any application. Please help because i really do not want to format it.

    Thank you.

    Sounds like you have a virus.

    If you can't open the Control Panel how do you know you can't uninstall any programs?

    Try going into safe mode and running system restore.

    If that fails...

    Your probably reformatting.
