Ok...that sucks, excuse let mots :think:!

Then I figure it can be two things.

1 ==> your systemfiles are totally corrupted and you have to revert to an earlier state of the system. Or do an entire rollback. There are some good tutorials on this site you can search for. This link might put you on the right track ==> http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/2855-system-repair-disc-create-windows-8-a.html

2 ==> your system is loaded with spyware/virusses which are totally messing up the access to importent systemfiles. Do a full virusscan of your system. You also might want to run McAfee Stinger Stinger | McAfee Free Tools It's a sort of last hope in case your virusscanner is disabled by the virusses.

Good luck!

Greetz,

Rover

Oh... That seems ... weird...
well alternately.. I remember that my cousin ended some processes from the task manager blindly.. maybe they were some important ones.. I then restarted my PC and it was normal, so I thought nothing's wrong.. but when I tried to open task manager.. *NO* .. It won't open.. Do you believe that may have caused it?

That might have corrupted something, although I don't think it can really lead to your problem. I mean, random killing of tasks will mostlikely result in a systemcrash, not a systemcorruption. Maybe your cousin installed somethings? Of deleted some systemfiles?

Try a systemrestore to revert back to a state before the day your cousin came along :).

So I booted in Safe Mode with networking and everything is fine.. I mean EVERYTHING!
So maybe the system files are not corrupt.. coz if they were.. it wouldn't have started in safe mode as well.. your say on it?

Great! And have you run the SFC Scannow in Safe Mode? That should repair the damage. Check my earlier post for the tutorial.

Yes it worked! I booted in safe mode and everything was fine.. Then I ran the Elevated Command Prompt and the command to repair system files. It did it and now it works well. Thanks @Rover .. :)
