    Actually it's not only the windows apps, it's all of them.. Every program, game everything!

    In that case, you might see if doing a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened may be able to fix it for you.

    I basically only game and surf the web
    I play mostly MMO's. I did try out Firefall recently. It's an MMO FPS game. It's pretty impressive so far.

    Since safe mode works, I bet it is one of your drivers or the screen resolution problem. You can try creating a new user and see if things work for that new user.

    But why would the resolution be a problem? My drivers are up to date! Will try a new user!

    I don't know but I have read a bunch of threads pointing to that. It's mostly from people running on small monitors or laptops and having it set too low.
