    Windows 8.1 no programs open on startup


    windows recently stopped opening any programs on startup. Programs such as steam, spotify, avg and everything else that normal opens on startup stopped opening. My sound stopped working my control panel also does not work. This all happened after I restarted after replace the battery in my wireless mouse. Under hidden icons down the right of the taskbar their was previously about 10 programs running under it now there is 5. I tried the no fast startup solution but that has done nothing.

    Win 8.1 Update x64


    I don't know why you want too many programs in start up, it actually slows down the machine start up.

    Anyway, try a System Restore:

    You could always try SFC-DISM to see if it's a file problem. open an admin command prompt and give:
    Code:
    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&sfc/scannow&Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc/scannow&pause
    and let it run through.
