Im lost at what I can do here and need some advice (I'll keep it as brief as possible)
I get the following error
When ever I try and access most things in my control panel (or i click the button and nothing loads)
When I try and right mouse click on my desktop and personalise (the same thing happens)
Basically most of my control panel is unusable.
Now I have tried
- Using sfc scannow
= Completes but says it found corrupted files but was unable to fix them
- Create a new user account profile
= This was hard as I didn't have access to "User Accounts" as its one thing not working, how ever apon rebooting into save mode, going into MS Config and going into something there, I was able to make it an admin account (the new profile) how ever apon loading into it, I have the same problem
- While in safe mode (minimal) same issue happens
I have virus \ malware scanned to rule that out
Ive gone to Microsofts support site and read multiple topics, but nothing has been able to fix it.
While I have a genuine copy of Windows 8 (I am in no position to re-install windows \ refresh etc) as it would just take way to long to set everything back up (I know its probably the easiest way to wipe it all and start again) , but I wish to avoid this option at all possible costs.
So throwing it out there, if anyone has anything to try (Eg re-pointing a registery key) or anything like that
I would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks for your assistance
