Trying to solve a problem that has just came up in the last few days. When opening a link from an email in Windows Live Mail in Windows 8.1 Pro 32 bit, firefox now opens the link behind WLM, it didn't do this a few days ago.

Tried a system restore but that gets stuck at "Initialising Restore" on a blue screen with the rotating dots and I have to do a hard reset. This reboots the machine back to the logon screen and when I log on I get a message System Restore has not completed, choose another restore date. I did this and it still gets stuck at initialising restore.

So how can I fix these problems?
