    How about refreshing you PC?

    Refresh Your PC in Win8—Attempts to solve system problems by replacing system files without affecting user data files. Such files still should be backed up off computer. Installed programs will have to be reinstalled except those from the Windows Store. A list of uninstalled programs is provided on desktop. Your personalization settings will be maintained. System settings will be set to defaults. A Windows.old folder will be created at C:. You can delete it once you have everything you want from it--Windows.old Folder - Delete in Windows 8.

    is this very HARD to upload that icons for me ?!
    I don't want to Refresh my system (because last time that i do refresh,my laptop damaged very hard).
    Please just upload that basic icons that i said and no more!
    thank.

    Don't know if this approach will work for you. Looks like it might, but not clear to me.

    don't post you email address ,no one here is going to email you, for security reasons
    and i asked you to try pinning a .exe from one of the apps in Program File folder on C:\ and you didn't ,why , to try to make sure that the start screen is actually working ,i also asked if when you right click on start will it show all apps ,you did not answer ,you need to help us to help you ,do so by answering our questions ,and no im not sending you my folder with the icons in it .

    http://imageupper.com/i/?S0200010020011A1364580049159926

    when i right-clicking on that shortcut and see properties i can see something that improve me this shortcut have crashed :
    http://imageupper.com/i/?S0300010100011K136458014415798

    so,there is no way
    except uploading those files for me (as mr.rich in that topic that i said)
    .::thanks in advance::.
