    Have you tried refreshing your PC? This will find any errors in Windows without deleting or modifying your apps or files.

    To do this on Windows 8.1:
    PC Settings > Update and Recovery> Advanced Startup

    After Advanced Startup click 'Troubleshoot' and then click 'Refresh'

    To do this in Windows 8:
    PC Settings > General > Refresh your PC

    Please note you will need your installation media (USB or CD you used to install Windows) to preform this task.
    You will also need administrative privileges.

    I don't have any installation media. I got my laptop from DELL with windows 8 installed and i have updated it to 8.1.
    Will I be able to refresh the PC without any installation media?
