    A little more detail would be helpful. You could be missing flash play (for Youtube), and you might just need a reinstall for both Windows Movie Maker and Windows Media Player. As well, are you using Windows Live Movie Maker?

    Thanks for your response.
    I uninstalled and attempted to reinstall but the install wizard indicated that they were already installed so that I could not proceed any further. I found somewhere in the Internet how to uninstalled Windows Live suite and followed it but to no avail.
    In the meantime,to use those softwares I boot an os on another partition where there is no such problem.

    Okay, I still need more information about your problem. Do they outright not work? Do you have a version number? Have you checked Windows Update?

    Hi, Chrome user. I dabbled with the Chrome but could not figure out how to have a list of saved website names displayed as a side bar, that are called Favorites for IE and Bookmarks for Firefox. Could you help?

    Have you tried to "repair your computer" option for windows 8? (insert the disc and select repair my computer, it will reinstall the boot manager)
