    Is Pcee4.exe a virus? I know its related with dolby profile selector, but I dont know what it does.

    I saw something. My Intel Wireless Bluetooth does not turn on. Could that be the problem?

    Did these issues start maybe after upgrading to Windows 8.1 though the Windows store? It may be time to do a Refresh or Reset.

    Its hard to lose my apps and files if I do refresh or reset. I don't even have an external hard drive.

    Refresh is the least invasive, Refresh Windows 8. A Reset will pretty well wipe everything, especially on a factory OEM install, its the same as doing a factory recovery. Reset Windows 8. Read though the tutorials and it should tell you what stays and what goes. Any Apps you've installed will show up in the My Apps section of the Windows Store and can easily be reinstalled. Once you buy them they are yours.

    Does the reinstalls require internet connection?

    Just to make it clear, does refreshing your system will clear some apps and won't clear any personal files, right?

    Click on the 'Get started' button, it will show you what you need and what will happen.
    If something looks amiss you can cancel.
